If you’ve got some strappy heels that really chafe or even just find that the edges of your shoes rub against your skin causing blisters, try applying clear deodorant to that section of the shoe. It should minimise the rubbing.
Break them in
If you have a pair of shoes that you’re sure would be comfy if only you had more time to break them in, then you’re in luck as there’s a secret way to speed up the process. Simply use a hairdryer on a thick pair of socks for two minutes, then quickly slip them on and put on your new shoes. Next, walk around the house for a while and the shoes should quickly expand slightly.
Want to know a trick used by celebs who have to stand around at award do’s in super high heels? They strap two of their toes. To get the benefit, you have to tie your third and fourth toe together as there is a nerve in the foot that makes your feet ache, and by strapping these two toes together with tape you can alleviate the pressure on the nerve!
Who doesn’t have a pair of shoes they love but can’t bear to wear for very long because the back of their ankles end up red raw? That’s why you should invest in some heel liners. They’ll lessen the friction so you can still wear your fave shoes but not be left with unsightly seeping blisters!
Shop later in the day
If you’re on the hunt for a new pair of shoes, go shopping later in the afternoon or early evening. This is when your feet will be the most swollen, so you’ll have a better idea of how the shoes will really feel after you’ve worn them for an hour or so.
