USHERING IN THE NEW YEAR WITH NEW SHOES IS NOT TOO MUCH TO WANT OR ASK FOR. BUT YOU SHOULDN’T HAVE TO PAY IN BRUISES AND BLISTERS FOR ALL THAT GLORIOUS BEAUTY. BREAKING IN YOUR SHOES IS A SLOW ART BUT WHEN YOU’RE PRESSED FOR TIME:
GOOD FOR COUPLES Turn Things Up: Stretch the leather shoes with the help of your blow dryer. Throw on your thickest socks and put on your tight shoes. Next, blow dry the tight regions for about 30 seconds and then take a brisk walk around the room while the shoes are still hot to loosen the shoe material. Bring the Chill: For shoes that aren’t real leather, take a plastic bag filled with water and place them in the toe region of the shoe. Then put the shoe in the freezer overnight. The water will freeze, expanding the toe of the shoe. Take them out the next day and the shoe material should have stretched.
