When breaking in new shoes this spring, only amateurs force feet to take the brunt of the pain. Seasoned pros and stylists know to stick on some Fashion First Aid products to cushion heels, prevent blisters, eliminate odor, and give the sole and heel traction and a longer life.

Bandaids are NEVER a good compliment to beautiful shoes

The pros are doing the real grinning because they have armed their feet and shoes with an arsenal of products to make shoes more comfortable and last the season while still looking new.

Spring is the season when new strappy heels, espadrilles, flats and sandals emerge. Poor feet are soft and pasty and can't take being thrust into the limelight (and those heels with all those straps) after a winter spent hiding. While the rookies grin and bear it (or not), the pros are doing the real grinning because they have armed their feet and shoes with an arsenal of products to make shoes more comfortable and last the season while still looking new.

For flats, this video shows how to add The Heel Deal, a gel heel cushion, to protect from blisters and keep the shoe from digging into your Achilles, apply Heel Seals to keep the heel from wearing down and Gripalicious to keep the sole from slipping on slick surfaces, clean suede with Skid Out sponges, and apply Wundercover to feet to prevent blisters.

For high heels, wrap a Heel of Steel urethane cover around them before a sidewalk crack or grate kills the heels. Add a pair of Belle of the Ball gel foot cushions to reduce fatigue and make wearing heels more comfortable. Placing nearly-invisible Wundercover skin shields on areas likely to rub prevents blisters, and some Kung Shoe Grip on the bottom of the sole keeps high heel wearers upright by giving traction while also protecting the sole from wear.

For espadrilles, be sure and place a pair of Flatliners thin carbon odor neutralizing stickers inside before the odor causes a TSA agent to pass out. Cop a heel gel heel cushions will reduce fatigue and make standing around so much more bearable. Add some adhesive Heel Seals to the bottom of the heel and a Gripalicious or Kung Shoe Grip to the sole to prevent wearing them down to the point the fiber starts unraveling.

If needs go beyond the problems mentioned above, Fashion First Aid also packages their 8 most popular shoe solutions into Shoe Done It, which makes shoes last beyond that pesky planned obsolescence.

All products are available at FashionFirstAid.com and Amazon.com.

Fashion First Aid (Solutions That Stick Inc.) invents and manufactures both wacky and useful personal care products that you will never see someone else wearing, unless you take off his/her clothes. Recently relocated from Southern California to Idaho, we began in 1999 with one product, Garment Guard: disposable underarm shields (because the founder was a broke law student who was tired of her expensive white t-shirts getting ruined by underarm taco stains). Now, with over 45 products on the market, over 10 in the works, and a light and upbeat book entitled The Dirty Side of Fashion, the corporate mission is still to save the world from fashion and beauty disasters and help make clothes last longer.
