Tip: Breaking in New Shoes

By coville123 326 89

I was getting blisters from my new shoes. A neighbor told me to rub clear deodorant where I was getting the blisters. This helped until I broke them in.

Tip: Use Alcohol to Break In Shoes

By pam munro 522 790

If you have leather shoes that are a bit tight, you can "break them in" by spraying them inside and out on the tight spots with alcohol (I use cheap cologne). Wear them around and repeating applications of the alcohol until the tight spots have stretched. I have also used this method on the tight tops of the box toes of brand new leather sneakers.

Tip: Breaking in New Shoes

When wearing a new pair of shoes with stockings, you might hear a noise as you walk where the heel slips off the shoe because of perspiration and newness of the shoe. Well put some rubber cement (glue) on the heel section of the shoe, let it dry and it works like a charm, no more noise and embarrassment.
