New Shoe Blues

New Shoe Blues

They are beautiful. They are brogues and I’ve been eyeing off a nice shiny pair of brogues for months.

I had no idea how mean my new shoes would be!! I wore them over a week ago and the injuries to my feet have not recovered. I’m holey! And I’m going on holiday in two days! WHAT HAVE I DONE?!?

I’m sure you’re familiar with the situation. Beautiful shoes, big blisters. What do you do?

Usually I put leather stick-on padding on the heel and sticking plasters on my feet and find that that does the trick. Not this time. The heels were so stiff that within half a day the leather wore thin and the padding cut my feet! It looks like someone mistook my heel for a potato and tried to peel it. Ouch!

My heels a recovering thanks to weird plasters with silver that has healing powers. I don’t even care if it’s a placebo. At least it’s gentle and squishy on my raw skin.

Any other ideas? How do you heal blistered feet, and how do you prevent it?
