When I used to wear sport shoes, I usually have no problem with them. However, when I started to wear other shoes, even simple flat ballerina shoes, the old annoying blister causing friction problem came back. Here is what I did for my new shoes.

How to Break In Shoes

For me the most serious problem lies on the heels, so I placed a band-aid around the red skin area on my heels caused by the friction. Then I lined the heel part with padded heel liners. I didn't do it according to the instruction as the middle part, where it hurt most, is strangely not padded, so I tried to place it a bit on the side. Or perhaps I should search for another type of heel liners next time lol. Then I wore a pair of thick socks and wear my new shoes at home for a week or so. By this way it helps make the shoes more adjusted to my feet, then I can wear it with bare feet more comfortably outside.

Dear readers, what is your shoe problem and how do you deal with it?
