Open-toed Transition

Switching your open-toed sandals and heels to more cold-weather friendly shoes and boots is often the last thing summer die-hards give up! If you’ve been fighting the transition and hanging onto summer, here are some tips for you as you look ahead.

DON’T go to a Halloween Party or event in shoes that are brand new. Warm them up by wearing them for a little bit each day before the event so that you can dance all night!

DON’T put a sock on top of an open blister. Always use a Band-Aid as buffer & let it breathe when you get home.

DON’T  wear shoes that are too tight. They can push the toes together, cutting your toenails on a curve. This could cause ingrown toenails. If you develop an ingrown toenail, call us!


DO
break in your shoes. Try this tip:

  1. Put on socks  and slip on your shoes. 
  2. Aim the hairdryer on the tight section for a few seconds (wiggle and stretch your feet inside the shoe for maximum benefit).
  3. Keep the shoes on while they cool.
  4. Remove the socks and test out shoes.
    It should be stretched out, but if you need more room, then repeat the process.

DO prevent blisters when you’re wearing bare feet in your heels. Just rub a little Band-Aid Friction Block on your toes or wherever your skin is sticking to the shoe and it’s “like wearing a sock!”
