Scholl GelActiv Everyday Insoles Review

I was recently asked to test the Scholl GelActive everyday insoles and my first impression was that they look great in a cool funky kind of way.

The hardest part of the whole process was opening the packaging, but once I had my hands on these squidgy gel fuelled wonders, I was able to fit them into my running shoes with minimal fuss as they are surprisingly very easy to cut down to size.

However, you need to be careful what shoes you use them in because the thickness of the insole could make your feet feel cramped in tighter shoes.

After a few shin and heel problems due to the impact of road running, I quite literally took the Scholl GelActive Everyday soles out for a run and ended up running the quickest 5 miles in a long time and they certainly make your feet feel more comfortable instantly thanks to the cushioning comfy goodness.

What was most pleasing after taking off my now super comfy shoes was that the usual aches and pains that come from a run were not there so have no problems saying that Scholl GelActiv Everyday Insoles can help with being on your feet for lengths of time and the cushioning of them helps tremendously with the impact of running on hard concrete.

At £14.99 they are a little on the expensive side, but as long as you have the room in your shoes you will notice a big difference and offer comfy support for walkers, runners and people who are on their feet all day.

Gaming marketing and media

citizensmithSince the dawn of time, journalists, or in this instance; reviewers are every company’s worst nightmare. A product that they have spent thousands creating, marketing and distributing in the hope of it becoming the next big seller can be ruined by one guy sat in front of his computer who types something along the lines of “avoid at all costs!”. Those four words could ruin several years of hard work. With so much at stake it would seem obvious that certain measures would be put in place before anyone gets to read the newest exclusive review or interview.

Combine this with the fact that a front cover of a magazine saying “First Modern Warfare 2 Review” would actually benefit the publication and would likely see a significant sales increase for that issue, sometimes it is more than plausible that both parties could reach an agreement that would benefit them both. Of course this is not only restricted to the video games media and the same can be applied to movies and music too. Stick Tom Cruise on the front of a movie magazine, complete with an exclusive interview and sales will rocket. The question is: Does this make this make it harder to be completely honest reviewing a product when the PR people have been so accommodating? (more…)
