Shoe comfort is one thing that cannot be overestimated. If your shoes don’t fit, then you need these hacks to make them much more comfortable.
- Use Medical Tape
Ever thought that medical tape could do much more than hold bandages and gauzes, they can also be used to prevent pain in the ball of your feet. So, before putting on your favourite pair of closed toe heels, use medical tape to hold toes two and three, this would ultimately reduce the strain on the nerves between them.
- Using Dry Tea Bags
So, you had a busy day at work and it rained heavily too on your way back home. Or say you have been so engrossed with your fitness goals that you keep forgetting to sun dry your gym shoes and both your shoes and the gym bag begin to reek of smelly feet. Not to worry, this hack’s got you!
Putting dry tea bags in smelly shoes or gym bags will absorb all the unpleasant smell. Remember the key word; Dry Unused Tea Bags.
- A Pair of Socks and Hair Dryer
There is much more to a hair dryer than just removing moisture from a recently washed hair. Hair dryers can help expand or stretch very tight shoes too! Neat right? How does it work?
Simply wear a pair of thick socks and the shoes will stretch. The hair dryer is then used to stretch the part of the shoe that feels tight on the feet.
- 2 Plastic Bags and A Freezer
Now, if you lack a hair dryer and you have a freezer, this shoe hack is definitely for you. All you need is just two plastic or ziplock bags and the tight pair of shoes that needs to be stretched. Fill the 2 plastic bags halfway with water and put them into the shoes in question and then store in a freezer.
As the water freezes, it will stretch the shoes ultimately stretching out the tight part of the shoes. Physics 101 to the rescue!
- Using Maxi Pads
The trick behind this hack is using the thickest and bounciest pads you can find. These can be gotten from any local supermarket closest to you. Maxi Pads offer that cushy feel a soft bed gives by providing your feet with extra padding. It also absorbs foot sweat hence reducing smelly feet.
- Using Heel Stoppers
Why wobble when you walk on a lawn or a muddy terrain, when you can walk comfortably in your heels using heel stoppers. So, no matter how smooth the path may be or how rough the roads might seem, with a heel stopper, you are assured of avoiding a walk of shame *wink*.
- Lip Balm for Blisters
Lip balm not only prevents chapped lips, it can also be used to treat blisters that might occur if there are no other footwear treatment option available.
When you feel the blisters forming, you can apply some lip balm to the area to help alleviate the blister causing friction.

TFA……. changing Africa, one shoe at a time
Shoes are a woman’s best friend. Interestingly, they come in different design, size, brand, style, texture and colour.
We’ve highlighted 10 different shoe design for women and where to rock them. Trust me, you don’t want to show up at an event overdressed or under dressed.
- Lace Ups
Lace up shoes have laces used for design and for the fastening of the shoe. Lace up shoes can be ballerina design, brogue, loafers, heels, etc. The low heel lace up shoes are generally great for 9- 5 work activities while high heel lace ups are suitable for dinners and cocktail events.
Ballerinas can be worn to casual events like movies to give you a relaxed/casual look. We love them because they are very portable, flat and fit into bags easily. Note, it is quite important to switch up your looks from heels to ballerinas so your feet and ankle can get some rest from the pressure of heels.
Brogues are absolutely gorgeous and chic. They give you a polish trendy look. Brogues are a definitely a must have. You can wear them to work and to casual events.
Heels come in different styles. The very low heels which are; kitten heels, peep toe heels, spool heels, ballroom dance shoes and french heels, all offer comfort to the heels and arches of the feet. Heels can be used for evening events or as dress shoes..The moderate heels are used to achieve a corporate look. Other types of mid heels are; cone, slingback, mule, oxford and comma heels.

Stilettos and pumps come in varying heights and can be as high as 8 inches. Stilettos give you an extra inch or inches (wink) and elegance. Stilettos are great for dinners, cocktails and evening events. High heels should not be worn for long to avoid stretching the thigh muscles. Pumps, ankle strap heels, platform heels, high heel sandals and cork high heels are types of high heels.

Loafers work great for both casual and business events. They are comfortable and give you a tomboy bounce.

Sneakers are very casual and comfortable. Thankfully they come in diverse design, colour and size, so you’re allowed to own more than a pair. Infact, if the shoe fits, buy them in all colours…lol.
Wedge shoes give you a polish, elegant look and yet comfortable look without having you put so much stress on the heel and arch of your feet. Wedges come in two styles; the wedge sandal and the wedge heel. These can be worn for corporate events or for casual events like a date or hangout with friends.
