Breaking in new shoes before travelling can be a real challenge, especially if you have sensitive feet or are prone to blisters. Here are some additional tips to help you break in your new shoes before your trip:
When breaking in new shoes, you must wear them with socks to help prevent rubbing and blisters. Choose socks that are made of breathable material, soft and fit well with your shoes like FitVille Warm Cozy Wool Socks and FitVille Diabetics Loose Ankle Socks.
Do not rush
Don’t rush out of the house the minute you put on your shoe for the first time, start by walking around the house for a while. This will allow your feet to get used to the new shoes without putting too much strain and pressure on them.
Use shoe inserts
If your shoes don't offer enough support or cushioning, consider using shoe inserts like FitVille Rebound-Engine V2 Orthotic Insoles and FitVille Rebound-Engine V3 Orthotic Insoles. This will help reduce pressure and keep your feet comfortable during your long travel.
Stretch the leather
If you're breaking in leather shoes, you can use a hairdryer to warm up and soften the leather before stretching it out. This will help the shoes conform to your feet and prevent rubbing. Also, try using a shoe horn to avoid forcing your feet in, causing injuries.
Use blister pads
If you're prone to blisters, consider using blister pads or band-aids on areas of your feet that are prone to rubbing. This will help prevent blisters and keep your feet comfortable during your long trip.
