The hot weather has arrived, and with it comes the season for wearing sandals, ballerinas and sneakers, and thus the season for blisters and foot abrasions. Unfortunately, in high temperatures feet sweat and start rubbing against the shoe, which causes painful sores. How to prevent this and how to deal with a rubbing pair of shoes? Find out how
If you have a pair of shoes that constantly chafes you in one spot, protect that spot before skin damage occurs. The easiest solution is to simply wear a sock. Then the whole foot is protected from abrasion and direct contact with the shoe, which is hygienic and very comfortable. Unfortunately, not every cut of shoe will fit socks. The fashion for socks and sandals is unlikely to return (and very well), so you need to look for another solution. For shoes which do not look good combined with socks you can protect your foot with a plaster. This method works great with sandals, ballerinas and stilettos with a strap. The most common area on the foot is the heel. You can also stick a plaster there or buy special ones heelsthanks to which the shoe will stop rubbing you. This gadget can make your favorite pair of stilettos permanently wearable all day long

If your shoes are a little too big, your foot may move around in them when you walk and thus rub. An insole makes a little less room in the shoe, so it fits the foot better. Gel insoles also work well as foot support on high heels. A soft toe pad like this will make your shoes so much more comfortable that you can dance the night away in them!
You may also find your sneakers rubbing on your feet due to being too loose. Lacing that is too loose can cause your foot to move around in the shoe when you walk. Unfortunately, not all shoes can be laced properly. Often, the laces attached by the manufacturer are too slippery, untie and can’t be squeezed tight enough, or simply come loose when worn. Good shoe laces should effectively solve this problem. Combined with insoles, they are sure to form a duo that will make sneakers the most comfortable shoes in your closet.
