Preventing Shoes from Injuring Feet

A brand new pair of shoes is never an easy task for the feet.We also feel this problem well, and that is precisely why we resolved to end the pain and discomfort once and for all.Using these tips, you will feel that those new shoes have been made for you.

1. Dressings

It may be the most common and obvious option, and it really always works.A pharmacy-bought dressing reduces friction, preventing blistering, especially when you wear high-heeled shoes.Remember that the dressing needs to be larger than the blistering area, so the material does not get wrinkled.

2. Talc for baby

Baby powder will greatly reduce the friction of the skin with the footwear. Before putting on your shoes, sprinkle them with a small amount of the product. If you wear shoes with your feet exposed, be sure to dry both your shoes and feet.

3. Coarse socks and dryer

Put on new shoes using thick socks.Direct the hot air from the dryer to the regions where the shoes tighten.Then walk with them until they cool down.If necessary, repeat the procedure.The material from which the shoe is made will expand due to the heat, becoming more comfortable.It is the ideal trick for natural materials such as leather.

4. Deodorant

The side of the feet, the heel and the fingers are the areas that usually suffer most with a new pair of shoes. To reduce friction between feet and footwear, apply deodorant roll-on or dry over these regions.

5. Silicone Insoles

Silicone insoles are found in orthopedic stores or the Internet.They can be complete, protecting the entire foot, or “reduced”, only for areas of the fingers or heel, for example.Choose the insoles according to the zone that causes you discomfort.

6. Water in a plastic bag

Fill two plastic bags with water and place them inside the shoes. Leave the shoes inside the freezer all night. When you remove them in the morning, you will notice that the footwear has become wider due to the water turned into ice, which occupies a larger volume.

7. Silicone lining

To avoid irritations and blisters caused by the back of the shoes, use special silicone “liners” that are found in shoe stores and online stores.

8. Use a bandage to hold the third and fourth fingers together

It may seem a bit strange, but if you “glue” the third and fourth fingers with a bandage, it will be easier to walk in high heels. It really works, we tested!

9. Let your feet rest

If you need to spend all day standing, always have a pair of comfortable shoes and slippers.After all, your feet need to rest.For example, when sitting in your office, take off your shoes and slip on slippers.

10. Platform shoes are great alternatives to jumps

If walking around with jumps every day is a real torture for you, and if you adopt all the tricks listed above, your new shoes will not be comfortable, consider opting for platforms. The height is almost the same, but these models are more stable and resistant, causing fewer bruises.
