Shoe Survival: Keep Your Feet Pain-Free In Those Strappy Stilettos

With the new spring shoe trends now in stores, and soon to be on our feet, a girl has to be prepared for some pain. These new trends are definitely hot, but are not very forgiving to our poor little footsies. So should you throw in the towel and resign yourself to wearing Birkenstocks all summer? We hope not. In order to avoid such a major faux-pas, and help you wear the latest styles completely pain-free, SheFinds has put together some solutions for how to make those killer heels not so killer on your feet. 

Foot Petals Sole Solutionz ($30) are perfect for keeping your feet in place while walking around in mile-high heels. The discreet petals are placed on the interiors of your shoes – you'll never see them, but you'll certainly feel them.

Insolia Inserts ($19.95) are gel-like plastic inserts that make walking in your Manolos a piece of cake. They help distribute your weight more evenly across the bottom of your foot rather than just the ball.

Don't ignore your toes – you need them to work for you. ToeMates Toe Pillows (4 Pack, $31.45) are exactly what they sound like – luxurious pillows for your toes. They help to distribute weight evenly across your toes, instead of one or two bearing the burden.

Summer Soles ($7.95) are perfect for those hot, sticky days when your shoes feel about as uncomfortable as sweltering in an office all day with no AC. These little lifesavers help keep your feet dry and happy all day long.

For some extra-strength protection against moisture and odor in the summer months, try the Certain Dri FEET Protection System. The Moisture Control Pads ($7.95) combined with the Microsponge Powder ($7.95) will work hard to keep you cool and comfortable.

To relieve painful chafing between your shoes and the sides of your feet, try this Blister Elixir ($19.95). It's known to prevent nasty blisters and other types of shoe irritation.

If it's too late to prevent those blisters, and you need some relief stat, we recommend these nifty little Nexcare Comfort Ultra Fabric Bandages . They offer effective coverage and durable staying power.
