This may seem like an obvious choice, but we have all done it: purchased that ‘must have’ shoe even if you know it’s going to be uncomfortable and not worn!
Comfort should be the number one priority when making a shoe purchase, whether you are buying boots, clogs, garden shoes, trainers or heels. If you buy the wrong size it can make your feet sore, maybe cause you to trip or be left in a cupboard.
Stick with shoes that are stylish, comfortable and fit the required job.
Clear Out Your Shoes
If you haven’t worn a pair of shoes for over 18 months them it is time to recycle?
If they have holes or the soles are worn, time to recycle or get them repaired,
If they don’t fit but look nice, surely it is time to recycle as they will just continue to gather dust!
You may earn yourself some extra money if you resell?
Invest in a good pair of shoes
We have all been tempted to get a pair ‘similar’ to the ones you really like because they save a few pounds. Sometimes, it is better to buy a pair from a reputable brand that have good reviews and are long lasting rather than a cheaper version that may not be as durable as you expect.
For example, a pair of Meduse Backdoorshoes® Jumpy boots in a funky colour rather than plain or a pair of outdoor garden clogs with chillis, brogues or meadow designs.
Take Care of Your Feet
If you are going to step out this year in toe-revealing shoes then try to make sure they are pampered and pretty in time for the reveal!
Start by removing any hard skin from the heel
Visit a local nail salon and have a professional pedicure, or give it a go at home.
And don’t forget to moisturise. There are some fantastic foot care products available one of our favourites is Hive Heel Balm handmade from Beeswax blended with Shea butter, highly recommended!
