How I used them:

Since I do not wear heels, but I do wear sandals, even in winter, I put these in my sandals. As best as I could, I centered them, from side to side, in the shoe, placing the back of the insole as close to where it looked like my heel was hitting the back of the sandal.

How they worked:

They feel weird in sandals that are basically flat. Because the sandal is slightly wider than my foot, and the insole is narrower than my foot, my foot always feels like it is hanging over the edge of the insole and not properly resting on the sandal. It actually makes walking feel awkward sometimes. Also, I am fidgety and I curl my toes on a regular basis while wearing the sandals and that makes the front end of the insole lift up from the sandal and I think after two weeks I may be wearing out the adhesive on the insole.

I would like to think these would work better in high heels where the shoe is tighter to the foot and the sensation of the foot not resting properly on the insole and shoe would be less of an issue, but since I do not wear heels I can neither confirm or refute this possibility.
