The 2-Second Trick For Making Any Shoes More Comfortable

November 4, 2016 by Lisa Fogarty
shefinds | Style

There’s nothing worse than putting on a sweet new pair of heels or boots and making plans to wear them all over town, only to feel the beginnings of a painful blister coming on about five minutes into your stroll. No matter how comfortable shoes feel when you try them on in a shop, that’s no guarantee that they will be on their best behavior when you get them home. Luckily, there’s one surefire way to handle shoes that hurt your feet — a 2-second trick that will prevent blisters and make walking feel more comfortable. Did I mention it’s super cheap?

Keep clear deodorant in your medicine cabinet at all times and pull it out before you put on your shoes. Carefully apply a layer or two to the inside soles and heels of your shoes, as well on the insides of all straps (which we know all too well just love to sneakily dig into our skin when we least suspect it). The deodorant will act as a barrier to protect your skin from your shoes and reduce friction as you walk. The less friction your feet experience, the less likely you are to suffer from blisters that result from the constant chafing of your shoes and heels against your feet.

It’s a hack that’s simple, affordable, effective — and will allow you to wear even your cutest, most uncomfortable shoes.
