How To Break Into New Shoes Without Killing Your Feet

I’m currently nursing a ton of blisters on my feet right now. I screwed up. I haven’t bought new shoes for a while now and forgot how painful it was to wear them in. It’s at this time that I’m reminded of some tried and tested methods of breaking into new shoes quickly and with less pain involved.

It can take up to two weeks to get comfortable with new shoes as they stretch out and mould to the shape of your feet. The process is often fraught with agony and I’m sure we’ve all endured new shoe blisters before.

The video by Lisa Pullano provides simple tips on how to break your new shoes in with some thick socks and a hair dryer. Yes, she is demonstrating her methods on women’s shoes but there’s no reason why they wouldn’t work on men’s footwear as well.
