From the cutest spring shoes comes the terror of the blister. Help?

9 years ago

Last week the thermometer creeped into the G'wan Leave Your Scarf At Home range and I took it upon myself to dig out the spring shoes. The glorious, lightweight, no socks required spring shoes.

And then I remembered that whole thing about the blisters. 

Ugh.

I've heard it said that you don't break in new shoes, the new shoes break in your feet, and that about sums it up.

Each year, the weather gets warmer, and the new wedges or open-toed slingbacks you've been desperate to dig out of the shoebox go on. You leave the home skipping then hobble home in pain.

(I know it's not just me.)

So I'm wondering, oh brilliant Blogher community, what you do to avoid blisters. Besides the obvious I mean (shoes actually fitting correctly, breaking them in slowly, avoiding patent leather in 600% humidity, wearing peds with ballet flats and risking banishment to fashion hell), is there any any magic cure that I'm not aware of? Some awesome beauty hack or must have ointment that will solve my many podiatry problems? Has anyone actually tried Udder Balm?

Or really, does it all come down to the Band-Aid for you?
