    I have never tried them, but I would be willing to try them if I was going to an outdoor event or something where I felt I should protect the heels

    Our wedding ceremony was outside on the lawn of an old estate. At the rehearsal, all of the girls walked down the aisle in our heels and we all sunk in. My MIL ran out the next morning before the wedding and picked up Sole Mates for all of us and it was a complete lifesaver. I didn’t sink into the ground at all on the walk down the aisle and it was nice to not have to worry about it.

    Honestly, if there is a chance that the ground you’re walking on is going to be soft, get some of these. They’re relatively cheap and they really do help.

    I have some (not for wedding- just general use) and think they’re great!  🙂

    You don’t really have to force them on… they just slip on and stay there.  I guess depending on the size of your heel they might not work but all the heels I’ve tried them on (which would be thin enough to sink into grass), they’ve worked on.  I have black and clear.

    Here’s a video showing them going on/coming off:    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cuBv0XRf4wc

    I bought them for my friend’s wedding this past summer.  I bought the size that was suggested for our shoes and I found that they didn’t work at all.  Some completely fell off, some ended up letting our heels all poke through the hole in the side and we still ended up sinking into the grass.  I was so bummed cause my shoes were completely ruined.

    I’ve heard good things about them, but I’ve never bought them for myself.
