Preventing Sandal Blisters

OK, so here is the thing. If your shoes are good quality, and they fit properly they should NOT cause any blisters on your feet. That being said, I know a lot of us find that super cute pair of sandals or heels that we just “have” to squeeze our feet into even though we know it may end badly. When that happens, there are a few tricks of the trade you can use the help prevent blisters.

  • Wear socks with your sandals around the house for a few days. This helps to stretch out your sandals without the friction and irritation on bare feet.
  • Apply clear deodorant to the places your foot may become irritated. It can help to form a protective barrier on your foot.
  • Squeaky Cheeks: Prevents blisters, rashes, and chafing in a dry, clean-feeling powder. I like that it uses natural ingredients like bentonite clay and corn starch rather than talcum powder which has been shown to have some negative affects on health. Helps to absorb sweat and odor without staining shoes.
  • Strappy Strips: Thin, performance-material strips that easily adhere to straps and pinching sling-backs to prevent blisters and increase comfort. They stop shoes from slipping and prevent angry red marks across your feet.
  • Blister Balm: Apply before putting on your shoes to create a protective barrier. Helps moisturize skin and prevent irritation and inflammation. Keeps pores clog-free so sweat can escape and the skin can “breathe.”
  • Blister Elixir: Prevents blisters and irritation, even from new shoes. Creates a barrier to protect your skin from chafing. Lasts up to 8 hours.

The best way to avoid blisters is to buy sandals that FIT properly. To shop women’s sandals that are designed with BOTH fashion and comfort in mind, check out Aetrex women’s sandals and Aetrex men’s sandals. I also highly recommend getting an iStep scan to be sure you are wearing the proper size and type of footwear for YOUR specific footwear needs.
