    But what about your dress? what heel height did you wear for your alterations?

    I don’t have experience with sole mates, but I didn’t want to fool with worrying about it, that’s why I went with wedges.

    When I bought the solemates, they ended up being too big for the narrow heel on my Valentinos. I ordered them online so there was no way I could know this in advance. Make sure you try the solemates with your shoes, they might not fit.

    Anyway, I wore my pointy high heels on grass and did not “sink.” so I’m not sure solemates are worth it.

    Learn to walk on the balls of your feet 😉 I do a lot of musical theatre and had to do this constantly because heels make a lot of noise on stage. It’s surprising how fast you can make it a habit, and I haven’t had a heel sink into the grass in years!

    I used heels above for my wedding and loved them.  I forgot to put them on my shoes during our rehersal and sank into the ground so deep I had to hold onto my husband while I yanked my shoes out to the ground.  Standing forward does help a lot, but there was so much going on there was no way I was going to remember to keep my weight shifted.  You do have to check the heel thichness though, my sets came with two sizes and neither fit my mom’s shoes.
