We are getting married in a garden & i’m terrified that i will be uncomfortable if my heels start digging in. If i purchased some, i think it would be nice to get a pair fro my bm’s also.
Google results come up with a couple of different designs & brands. They range from $10 (on ebay) to $15 each pair. That’s $75 I was expecting to pay… email deal comes up & I can get 5 sets for $27! But have no idea how ‘good’ they are (deal doens’t advertise the brand).
So, bees, does the brand matter or do they all do the same job?
Does the design matter? Here are the 2 most popular ones..
Those on special….
Would you buy the ones on special or do the others ‘work better’ ?

I plan to purchase heel savers as soon as I settle on my shoe. I’m pretty close to a pair of Badgley mischkas with 4in heel and a tiny platform, so they will not be what I am used to wearing. Sorry I dont have much else to contribute, but yes, they r on my list to purchase.

Here was my experience—bought the brand sole mates. Had an outdoor garden ceremony, lost one at some point pre-ceremony or ceremony!
In retrospect, I would have bought thicker heels, but loved my shoes!

I used solemates too and gifted them to every female in our wedding party. Most worked great as long as they fit your heel perfectly (they had three different sizes). Mine stayed but my mom had problems with hers coming off as the solemates brand has this hole on one side where your heel can shift and slide into if it is loose. Did it work? Yes, I had not problems walking on the grass. Are they necessary or worth it? Not sure. I only tried the solemates brand so can’t comment on others but the first or third photo look like they’d work best.

@Nic01: I wasn’t sure whether heal protectors would work for my outdoor wedding so I just went with wedges and encouraged guests to get wedges or flats. Let me know if they work!
