It’s official: the holidays are in full swing, and I couldn’t be happier about it! I love baking Christmas cookies, getting and decorating a tree, seeing family, and (of course) going to all of the holiday parties. Getting dressed up, finding the perfect outfit, choosing the perfect shoes. The shoes! Shoes around the holidays are fabulous! Dainty and girly details like lace cutouts or hints of sparkle make shoes especially fun this time of year. But you know what they say about beauty and pain? No one loves the feeling of a fresh blister developing along their heel because they braved the pretty new shoes for their office holiday shindig. Well, here’s a handy little tip for how to “break in” that new pair of shoes in under 5 five minutes.
Take those new shoes, and put them on over a pair of thick/bulky socks. Put your hair dryer on medium heat, and start “drying” your shoes. You’ll want to “dry” your shoes for about 2 minutes each (3 if they’re really stiff shoes) making sure to pay special attention to the toes, heel, and balls of the feet.
Congratulations! Your new shoes are broken in and ready to party! And might I say, they are fabulous!
