How To Make Your New Bridal Shoes Comfortable

Posted October 19, 2011 by in Articles | No comments yet

You just got a pair of new bridal shoes that you are going to wear for your big dream wedding. Overly excited, you were not able to break them in first. So what should have been a night of grandeur, a new life, memories, and romance transformed into an evening of blisters and cramps.

Before using your brand new shoes, it is important to break them in first. Here are some tips on how to do just that.

1. Don them around your house for one week. Wear thick cotton athletic socks when testing the shoes. The thickness of the sock will help the shoes material expand.

2. Lightly scruff the bottom of each shoe with sandpaper, or walk on slightly rough ground. This enhances the sole’s grip on the surface.

3. For leather shoes, waterproof the outside of the shoes with a waterproof coating treatment. You can get a spray-on treatment that is often used to rejuvenate the water-resisting capability of tent rainflys. After the coat tries, soak the shoes under clean water for a minute or two. Take them out of the water, wear thick socks, and walk around the house for 30 minutes. This enables the shoe to mold to your foot.

4. It is a good idea to use heel liners, which are on sale in your local drugstore or shoe store. Aside from breaking in your shoe, liners prevent your heels from chaffing.

5. For especially tight or stiff shoes, grab the heel and gently knead it back and forth. The rocking motion slightly loosens the sole. Be careful though that you do not tear the sole from the rest of the shoe.
