Shoes were the last part of my style for fully form, so it was admittedly my weakest point. But I have created a system for all of my shoes that have saved me time, money and calluses. Interested? Keep scrolling.
FREEZE SHOES TO BREAK THEM IN
This is a quick fix process that all shoes I wear must go through before I wear them. I often find that I don't have time to gradually break them in because the weather calls for an appropriate shoe. I simply fill a small ziplock bag halfway with water and insert it into the shoe. Freeze over night and voila! they are loosened just enough for you to walk comfortably without developing calluses.
STUFF NEWSPAPER IN SHOES TO KEEP THEM ODORLESS
Sometimes the rain gets the best of you and the inside of your shoes get wet. And nothing is worse than a shoe that has a damp smell because of sweaty feet/socks. Easy solution? Sprinkle a teaspoon of baking soda in the bottom of the shoe and place one medium piece of crumpled newspaper inside. let it stay overnight and by morning the shoe will dry and odorless.
INVEST IN SHOE FORMS
Investing in shoe forms is a way to save you money and time. Not only do they protect shoes from retaining moisture, but they also help leather shoes from cracking while keeping its form longer. This is such a invaluable tool for my shoe collection. I have wide fat feet and they often breakdown the form of my shoes shortly after wearing them . That is no longer the case since I have found shoes forms. My favorite shoe forms are from Bed Bath & Beyond, found here.
