- Prevent blisters – using a clear deodorant (yes, you read right) on any areas that you believe your boots or flats will bother your later will create a barrier between the skin and shoe. This will help prevent the painful blisters caused by rubbing.
- Tape your toes – taping your third and fourth toes together with medical tape can surprisingly prevent toe pain. There is a nerve in between these two toes that, if wrapped up, can minimize any strain and pain caused by boots or flats.
- Stretch your shoes – are your boots too tight around your calves? Using a leather stretching spray and rolling up newspapers and stuffing your boot is a quick and easy way to stretch your boots.
- Sand your heels – using a rough piece of sandpaper is a good way to rough up the bottom of your heels to prevent slipping.
