5 Ways to Make Your Shoes More Comfortable

5 Ways to Make Shoes More Comfortable

Shoes…a life’s necessity. If you are a shoe-lover, like most of the CGS community, then you can appreciate when a shoe feels as good as it looks! In fact, when a shoe looks great but feels uncomfortable, most people can tell.

What’s more important is having our shoes feel and look comfortable. There are so many times when the shoe is gorgeous but are completely uncomfortable, and that is a recipe for a long night. I’m sharing a few great tips to help you make shoes more comfortable!

Cover your Sandal Strap

Sandals are the best shoes to wear when the sun is out and the weather is perfect. The only annoying thing is the irritating strap that keeps bothering you when you walk. Say bye-bye to that pain and hello to fashion.

Simply wrap your favorite fabric around the straps to avoid that irritating feel and let your fashionista spirit speak for itself. If you don’t have any extra fabric laying around, hit up your local Michaels or crafts store and pick some out.

The cool thing is your sandal will look like a completely new sandal!

Sand Paper the Bottom of Shoes

Sometimes, when we haven’t really broken in a new shoe, it can feel as if we are moon-walking everywhere we go because the soles haven’t been broken in. All you need is a sheet of sand paper and the shoe that needs to be managed.

Rub the bottom of your shoe against the sand paper to dispose of that slippery feeling. No more slippery slopes for you walking down the hallway with coworkers and friends!

Note that this doesn’t work so much on tennis shoes, or any shoe with ridges at the bottom.

Baby Powder in the Soles

Adding baby powder to your favorite shoes will not only make your shoes smell fresh, they will help you get rid of that squeaky sound. Squeaking is usually caused by parts of the shoe rubbing against each other.

Just lift the inner sole of the shoe and sprinkle baby powder underneath. The powder prevents the material from rubbing together and making that annoying sound. People will no longer hear you before they see you walking down the halls!

Use Clear Deodorant

Who would have ever thought your deodorant can be used for more than one thing! Applying the clear deodorant to the inner heels of your favorite shoes helps prevent blisters from forming.

The deodorant decreases friction and increases your ability to dance all night. This cool little life hack can keep your shoes in good condition and smelling great. So put on your dancing shoes and let the night take you where your heart desires!

Waterproof your Shoes

Shoes that are made from cloth material can be the worst during rainy seasons. The cloth material, like clothing, gets soggy and very uncomfortable to be in.

Keep your feet dry and waterproof your shoes using beeswax. Apply the beeswax all over the cloth material and then blow dry on cool to let it set in. The next time you miscalculate a puddle, your feet won’t have to pay the price.
