02 Jan Manage your first-wear blisters
Here what we found on Shoes of Prey. A might be, super handy trick to prevent blister with your new shoe first wear:
High heels, ballet flats, precious pumps, even winter boots — the first-wear shoe-rubbing foot blister doesn’t discriminate. But, there’s no need to fear the first wear. Here’s our tip for beating the blisters.
The new shoe first wear 🙁
We all know the story of the new-shoe-first-wear. Totally bittersweet. The frivolity of a new piece of clothing — shiny, sparkling – but also sometimes a little teeth-clenching towards the end of the night while the leather is learning the shape of your feet. And even though ours are custom shoes, the natural materials will sometimes need a date or two with your feet to become the most comfortable heels you’ve ever worn.
Lamenting this into the office with the girls a solution was suggested — humble, simple cello tape. I’ve tried bandaids and sports tape but never cello. I’m advised that packing tape thickness works best. All you need is a patch over the blister or area that you think will blister and you’re set to slip those shoes on for a smoother get to know you phase.
I personally have no idea if this trick from Shoes of Prey helps…but…why not give it a try? It won’t cost you a dime! And, for a more prolonged effect, you could check out Heels’R Us’ super cool inserts – specially for high heels!
