Women Of Influence: Interview With Nicole Williams, LinkedIn’s Career Expert | CorporateFashionista.com

I’m always on the lookout for new ways to empower myself, especially when it comes to my career.

When I feel like my best self and super confident at work, life just seems to run more smoothly (and joyfully)…business solutions and ideas come faster, relationships are fun and easy; plus I need fewer cups of coffee, because it’s a dose of adrenaline like no other where anything and everything seems possible.

So when I had the opportunity to interview business maven, Nicole Williams, I jumped at it!

Recently, I was sent Stiletto Hardware, a new collection of shoe pads, to sample. I must confess; I was skeptical. I mean there are other shoe insoles in the marketplace, how much better could these really be?

Review

I decided to give them a working woman’s true test. First, I inserted the Ball-of-Foot Cushion into a pair of my highest heeled sandals (4.25” non-platform is my absolute max) and wore them on a super busy day – a day I would have normally chosen to wear a substantially lower pair. After back-to-back meetings followed by a lengthy networking event, where I was required to stand for several hours, I ended the day actually feeling grateful. To my surprise, they worked! The results lived up to the company’s tagline, “No more walking home barefoot”. The best way I can describe Stiletto Hardware shoe insoles is it feels like you are walking barefoot on a Tempur-Pedic mattress…they’re amazing! Plus, an extra bonus, the pads were not visible while wearing my sandals. Next, I tried the Heel Cushion with a pair of flats and then the Ball-of-Foot (Ultra Slender) Cushion with a pair of closed-toe pumps that already fit a little snug. I had equal success with these versions too.

I could no longer contain my excitement! I had to find out more about who was behind, Stiletto Hardware, and its fantastic products.
