Shoe Hacks To Improve Your Summer Sandals

Shoe Hacks

It’s that time of the year again where winter boots are stored away and summer sandals are revived once more! For those who are purchasing new sandals as well as those sticking with a pair of old favourites, what can we do to make the transition from winter to summer easier? It’s inevitable that at least one pair of shoes will either rub, smell or just need breaking in – unless you’re lucky! At Mozimo we have put together a few shoe hacks that we think everyone should know before those sandals ruin your summer!

  1. Opt for a pair of supportive sandals over flip flops. Avoid long term problems with a more supportive style of sandals; flip flops can have a negative impact on your feet, posture and body so try and steer clear at all costs!

  2. For those who can’t deny their love for a pair of flipflops, then try and go for styles that offer a thicker, more contoured sole, this will allow the foot to sit more comfortably when you walk.

  3. Bought a new pair of flip flops and your feet just won’t stop sliding around in them? Hairspray is your new best friend! A quick spritz of hairspray will help your feet to grip more when wearing those new summer flip flops.
  4. If you’re trying to clean those old favourites, but they just don’t look any better, take a toothbrush and get into those grooves! There’s plenty of places bacteria can get in flip flops beat bad smells with a mix of warm water, alcohol and a trusty toothbrush.

  5. If you get caught out in the typical British summer and your sandals get a little damp, don’t worry! Sprinkle a little baby powder into your footwear and let the powder soak up any moisture overnight.

  6. New shoes have a tendency to rub, if you’re finding that you’re running out of plasters fast, then look at purchasing a roll of surgical tape. You’ll find it’s much more cost effective and will also prevent your shoes from rubbing before the blister occurs.

  7. A great way to ensure any shoes won’t rub your feet during a day of shopping is by wearing them in at home first. Why not try wearing the shoes with a pair of thick socks around the house before you venture out of the house in them?

Hopefully our handy shoe hacks will keep those annoying footwear troubles at bay! If you’re looking for a new pair of summer sandals, invest in a new pair this season with our full collection of women’s footwear online at Mozimo.
