One never knows what type of surface to expect

Will Smart Heel damage my shoe?

By following the simple instructions on the Demo and Instructions for Use pages and making sure your heel fits within the parameters of the Smart Heel Guide, the heel of your shoe should not be damaged by Smart Heel. We do not recommend using Smart Heel on heels covered with patent leather. Smart Heels which can be used on patent leather are currently in development. To receive updates on new models, click here.

Can I wear Smart Heel on more than one pair of shoes?

It is highly recommended that you use a separate pair of Smart Heels for each pair of shoes to ensure correct fit and maximum protection.

Heels come in many shapes and sizes. Smart Heel is designed to allow you to customize it to fit your lower height heels within the Smart Heel Guide range. Additionally, Smart Heel has “memory” and will mold itself to fit a particular heel. Once the Smart Heel has developed this memory, it may no longer stay on other pairs of shoes.

Can I wear Smart Heel indoors?

Can I wear Smart Heel on grass?

Smart Heel was designed and fully tested for hard surfaces but some women have told us that they have found it to be useful on grassy areas as well. Smart Heel seems to add just enough "bulk" on the inside of the heel such that the heel won't sink into a lawn further than the heel tip (the bottom replaceable portion of your heel).

We do not recommend using Smart Heel on very soft ground at this time.

Should Smart Heel only be worn on new shoes?

Smart Heel is designed to be used on both new and previously worn shoes. If your heel tips are slightly worn down, you may want to slightly pre-stretch the Clamps with your finger to help the heel enter the Clamps. While it is not necessary, you may wish to replace your worn heel tips at this time.

How will I know to which pair of shoes my Smart Heels belong?

On the back of each pouch, there is a rectangle on which you can use a permanent marker to write the name of the shoe to which your pair of Smart Heels belong.

Why is my Smart Heel getting scratched when I wear it?

Don’t worry. Your Smart Heel is incurring the damage that the heels of your shoes otherwise would. Smart Heels are easy and inexpensive to replace while your favorite shoes may be irreplaceable.

If Smart Heel protects my high heels, why is the heel tip still getting worn out?

Heel tips (also called “lifts”) are generally made of rubber or plastic and will wear down more quickly on concrete surfaces. According to many shoe repair experts, the only heel tip that will not wear out is metal. However it is difficult to get metal tips which will perfectly fit your shoes, and they are very noisy when you walk.

Wearers of Smart Heel have found that their heel tips wear down much more slowly when they wear their Smart Heels on a regular basis.
