We Tried Stick-On Foot Pads To See If They Could Replace Shoes

  • Published on Oct 3, 2018
  • We put stick-on foot pads to the test. We were "barefoot" on the grass, in the streets, on the beach and more to see if they really work. They are waterproof and they protect your feet from the elements. Could these stickers replace your shoes?

    On grass ?, um, i think my foot would be too itchy, and i wouldn't want my foot shown out in public because, it would make me uncomfortable and it would feel weird (my opinion).main issue: Too weird to be out in public and wear these.

    These won’t last as long as shoes, making more waste. A clever way to sell them but maybe not so great for the planet. Just get some actual shoes.

    Shoes support you're foot, PROTECT your toes and feet from all kinds of stuff, and keep you're feet warm in the winter or when it's chilly. What do these do? Make sure your feet don't get dirty

    I think it would make more sense if these were made of a more durable material than cotton or spandex. Then you could keep them for a much longer time, but I'm not sure how they'd maintain their stickiness.

  • Sally Shoaf

    These only make sense in places where you would normally be barefoot. Other than your home, I mean. Because there are other things that shoes provide that these don't.
    Here's a list of reasons shoes are better:
    Arch support. I have high arches, and if I walk around barefoot, even just around my house, my arches start to hurt really badly. Even plain canvas shoes like converse or vans with no arch support whatsoever are better than walking around barefoot.
    Protection for the top of your feet- Shoes can protect you from stubbing your toes or being stepped on.
    Keeping your feet dry and clean. Even when you wear sandals, your feet get really dirty, and if its raining or you step in a puddle, these things will come off your feet.
    Reuse & longevity. These things are single use. I have a pair of foam flip flops that I bought about 2 years ago that I still use. The soles are getting thin, but they still work. Most shoes will last many years, and can be worn hundreds, maybe even thousands of times.
    Cost effectiveness: Something that's reusable will always be more worth the money. I don't know how much these cost as they are not being sold anymore at the link provided (I guess that makes this entire comment a moot point), but I'm going to guess they are about $20 a piece since that was the average price of stuff still being sold. My flip flops that I still have from 2017 were about $5. And they're just about as effective as these are.
    Fashion. As I said, these only make sense in places you would go barefoot. Shoes are good for certain situations, most of which these cannot be used for.
    Cushioning. Walking around in shoes without cushioning is uncomfortable, just as walking around barefoot. These things are made of cotton and spandex, and they look pretty thin. I imagine there's not much cushioning.
    Size range: These things come in 3 sizes. (or at least that is what we are shown) if you have large, small, or wide feet, you will not be able to use these.

    Now obviously, not everything on this list applies to every style of shoe. But the one thing that can apply to every single shoe other than these is that they can be reused, which is not true of these. So not only are they impractical, but they are also wasteful. And I'm certainly not immune to society's fixation with consumerism, but I do believe in buying clothing that is versatile and that can be used in more than one situation, and that you'll wear more than once.
    I have one set of formal wear which I have worn to concerts, scholarship interviews, community service, school presentations, and a funeral. Not only that, but the individual pieces can be worn on their own in casual situations. So, yeah. Very versatile, well worth the money spent. Unlike these.

    What I'm trying to say, is that these things are just a waste of money. In every situation that you could wear these it would be more practical to either go completely barefoot or just wear flip flops, which serve the same purpose as these with the added benefit of being reusable

    Well, I mean not everything you can do with these. Like hiking and climbing cause shoes are also to protect the top of your foot from tall rocks, sticks, snake bites, etc. But I could see these being useful for just walking around.

    If only we had a version of these that were reusable. and for protection, they could cover the whole foot, ad instead of being uncomfortably held on with adhesive we could use pieces of string or straps of interlocking fibers! That way, we could also choose how tight they are and we could wear socks with them!
