Hi – I am going to be getting married outdoors (I hope it doesn’t rain!) and I was worried about my heels and the BM’s getting stuck or dirty from the grass. I came across a few websites that offer heel protectors and was thinking of getting some for myself and my BM’s but was curious if some brands were better than others. If any of you have used any I appreciate your feedback!
So far I have seen: SoleMates http://thesolemates.com/how-it-works/ and Heels Above http://www.heelsabove.com/ but there seems to be lots available, even at stores like DSW – who knew!

I’m getting married outside as well and was terrified if the grass was damp, etc… We ordered the SoleMates and I’ve already tried them outside and will be using them on my wedding day, as well as a few of my bridesmaids. They worked really well for me. Keep in mind that the ones sold on their website are the ‘classic’ size and fit most heels, but you can call and get narrow or wide depending on the size of your heel. Good luck!

I would to hear about this also, since more than likely will be taking pictures outside.

Hi – I also ordered the solemates from the website. My heals are pretty wide so i heated up the protector with the blow dryer and then put it on. The plastic softened enough to fit snuggly there. See pic!
ugh! It’s a huge pic!! Sorry!

Thanks ladies, this is helpful. Has anyone found them less than $10 a pair?

$10 seems pretty standard. You might be able to find them for a buck or two less, but it will be made up with shipping. If you buy from the Solemates site, it’s free shipping on 2-9 pairs.
Personally, I’ve got my eyes on the gold glitter or black style. I think either would look cute with my ivory dress/jet black accessories.

Were the sizes pretty easy to figure out for the solemates? MissMaine ordered the classic – would that work for a heel size a little smaller or larger?
