Imagine walking on the road and you are conversing with a friend and deep into the conversation, your feet pops out like a champagne cork from your shoes. Embarrassing right?
If this has happened to you, take solace in the fact that many individuals especially women have experienced this footwear malfunction too.
This week, our blog post is centered on 5 tips to help reduce the slip rate of your feet out of shoes.
- Line Your Shoes with Insoles, Cushion or Inserts.
Insoles ensures that your feet do not slide up or down while walking in them. If you do not feel comfortable using one insole, you can double up.
If after trying this hack and your feet still slip out, you can place inserts where the back of your heels touch the shoes. For sandals, place the inserts on the heel of the shoes as well.
- Stuff Your Shoes
This hack is ideal for closed toe shoes. You fill the toe box with newspapers or fabrics that are not too harsh on the feet.
A properly stuffed shoe offers your feet no room to move forward or slip forward.
- Attempt a Different Shoe Style
Rather than opt for heels that you may find so hard to walk in, you can go for pumps or other styles that offer you the height you crave as well as the comfort your feet desires.
- Spray Hairspray on Your Feet
Need your feet to stick to your shoes like glue? Try hairspray! Hairspray makes your feet sticky and helps to prevent your feet from slipping out especially from sandals. Yikes! No one like that.
If you want to walk properly in narrow heels or your feet are narrow, a can of hairspray is a must have on your vanity.
- Use a Double-sided Tape
This also prevents your feet from slipping. This hack has the same effect as the hairspray hack. However, people with very sweaty feet may not consider this hack as sweat and heat produced from the feet makes the tape to become less sticky.
To be safe side, always carry a pair of extra tape in the event of the tape losing its elasticity.
If you have ever wondered how your supermodels walk the runway without wobbling, one of these hacks make that possible.
