Let’s face it. We’ve all had issues with our shoes at some point. These hacks are a game changer!

10 Amazing Shoe Hacks That Will Change Your Life-Sassy Townhouse Living

Let’s get to it! Here are some great shoe hacks I’ve learned along the way. They work great and can really be a lifesaver when it comes to dealing with shoes that hurt, don’t fit properly, or are just plain uncomfortable. Save yourself some pain and make sure you check these out! 

1 – Tape Your 3rd and 4th Toes Together Before Wearing Pointed Or Closed Toe Shoes

Whenever I have to wear heels and my toes feel crunched, I take some medical tape and simple tape them together. Doing this alter your balance a little and take the pressure of the balls of your feet. It also gives me some extra toe room especially when I wear shoes with pointed tips.

2 – Use Panty Liners To Absorb Sweat

Yes, that’s right! It’s less expensive and yes, panty liners work great in absorbing sweat. Plus, you can change them as often as you like, and they stick to the souls of the shoe perfectly and remove in a snap too. Plus, you can shape them to fit any shoe. Fold them in half or use them expanded – either way, they work great especially in the hot summer months.

3 – Use Sand Paper On The Soles Of Slippery Shoes

Yikes! Did you ever take a flop because the soles of your new shoes were way too slippery? I know I have. One way to solve this problem is to gently scuff the soles with a sandpaper block. You don’t need a super course block but just enough to tame that slippery surface. Works like a charm!

4 – Loosen Your Tight Shoes! Place Them In The Freezer With Ziploc Bags Filled With Water

It’s amazing how well this works! Whenever I have shoes that are a tad bit too snug, I fill up two Ziplock bags with water and place them inside my shoes. As the water freezes, it will slowly expand the bag to gently stretch the walls of your shoes.

5 – Insert Some Wool Fabric Into Your Shoes To Keep Your Feet Warm When It’s Cold

If there’s one thing I find terribly uncomfortable, it’s cold feet – especially when I have to wear dress shoes in the winter. I easily solve this by adding some wool fabric into my shoes and wow, what a difference! You can use any wool fabric you have handy or get some on Amazon.  LAMBS WOOL PREMIER Size: 3/8 OZ (Pack of 1)

It flattens out nicely once you walk on it and feel every so comfy and warm! I love wearing wool in my sneakers too for added comfort!

6 – Apply deodorant To Your Heels And Sides Of Feet To Prevent Blisters

This hack is amazing! I’ve tried so many products to prevent blisters and none of them work as good as deodorant in protecting your feet from chafing and blistering. Plus, deodorant is something we always have at hand in our homes. I find it also prevents my feet from sweating too! It’s a win-win! I like using Secret Clinical Strength as I find it works the best.

7 – Use Instant Heel Tip Replacement Caps

I think these Quick Tips are the best invention for shoes ever! They are long-lasting instant heel caps for damaged or worn-out heel tips. The cap covers the exposed metal nail and stops the clicking sound and prevents skidding too! They are made of heavy-duty rubber for lasting repair  and lock onto your heel with a self-fusing wrap for extra secure fit. They work great every time! I got mine from Amazon here. QUICK TIPS®, Instant Heel Tip Replacement Caps – 1 Pair (Small)

8 – Make Life Better For Both Your Toes And Your Nose With Unused Tea Bags

Yep, get rid of those nasty odors with teabags – the all natural way. I love this hack and have used it for years now. Works like nothing out there on the market.

9 – Combine Wooly Socks And A Blowdryer For Painless Breaking In

I adored these Betsy Johnson flats and this hack worked great when they were brand new. All they needed was a quick and painless breaking in. All it took was one try and done! 

Directions

  1. Turn the dryer on “high” heat setting and heat the inner toe and heel areas of your first shoe.
  2. Put heated shoe on foot over your sock. (Keep in mind that this is not an entirely comfortable process, assuming the shoe was already too tight to begin with *before* adding a thick sock. There will likely be some shoving involved.)
  3. Heat outer toe and heel of shoe for 20-30 seconds, bending foot as much as possible inside the shoe.
  4. Repeat entire process with the other shoe.
  5. Still wearing the socks, walk around in the shoes until the leather cools completely (about five minutes or so).
  6. Remove socks and test for size. You can probably repeat the sock/heat routine if necessary to stretch the shoes even further.

10 – Only Try On Shoes In The Afternoon Or Evening

Our feet tend to swell during the day and that’s when you want to purchase your shoes. Since our feet always tend to expand during the course of the day, it really makes sense to try them on when our feet are already swollen.
