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.
