Friday, August 01, 2008

For some reason, summer always seems to be the hardest time for feet problems. Sure, you can get blisters from heels all year round, but it’s the heat and humidity that really gets to my poor little feet. Luckily for those of us who seem to have constant feet troubles, there is a company that caters to all of our needs. Foot Petals makes inserts, pads, sprays, cushions, you name it! All of their products are designed to help your feet survive any ailment. I hate wearing heels in the summer because my feet get so hot that they get sweaty or sticky from the humidity. Then they slide forward or the straps rub and cause blisters…either way it winds up not being worth the pain. If you get blisters from strappy shoes, Foot Petals makes little strips to protect you. If you have no arch, try their “virtual arch for flat feet”. Seriously, check it out! Whatever your foot problem, they have the answer.   Click here to learn more: Foot Petals

What do you do to protect your feet to avoid the 'beauty is pain'?

I commute to work everyday, so I like to wear flip-flops or a pair of flats and then just toss on a pair of heels at work. My sister recently introduced me to the Foot Petals products, though, so maybe I won't have to do that anymore!

I try to avoid wearing high heels that would be make my feet comfortable and i would wear flats or sandals. Tip. I always bring an extra pair of flats or sandals whenever i wear heels so i can take the heels of and put the spare on when my feet starts hurting. Or when i just want to have fun.

To protect my feet, I usually put a little baby powder on my feet where my feet rub, or the bandaid brand blister block is fabulous too!!!

I also generally stick to flats or flat sandals. My feet seem extra sensitive to blisters and the like. I also use Band Aid Blister Block. I have to reapply sometimes, but the tube is small enough to fit in my purse. I also keep Band Aid Advanced Healing blister band-aids in my purse and at my office. If something starts to hurt, you need to treat it immediately so it doesn't get worse!

To protect my feet from the heat and sweat, I put a little foot powder on the bottom of my feet before I put my heels on. It helps to control the sweat and the sliding for at least a little while. I don't wear a lot of strappy heels because I do not like my toes. Most of my heels are closed toed, so I wear those little "not-socks" that only cover my heels, soles, and toes. This also reduces the sweat and sliding. I also use foot pads to reduce the strain on the balls of my feet. I have never used the Foot Petals brand, but it sounds like something that I will try! Thanks for the great info!

i like wearing skin-colored slip socks. They're like those little hose things you wear when you try on shoes at the store, except they are better made. They help keep blisters from forming and they don't show! They even make them for open toed shoes.

For some shoes that are uncomfortable (like my marching band shoes) I use gel insoles and sometimes I also wear and walk around in the shoes for shorter amounts of time so my feet are just a bit sore instead of blistery and red until the shoes are broken in.

I completely agree, summer months are the worse, so I prefer flats and flip flops. However, I've never tried Foot Petals, but did purchase some Dr.Scholl's foot comforts, which work amazing, since I get most of painful wounds from cute shoes on the back of my foot. These babies work great in my heals and stiffer flats. But in the summer, I do prefer soft, fabric type flats, and those keep my feet happy! Also, gellies! They're making a come-back, and oh-so-comfortable! I wear them all the time.

This sounds like such a great product - I'm always getting blisters from my feet sliding around in my shoes, since one of my feet is about a half size bigger than the other, one of them is always loose. I've also started having a little trouble with one of my heels, and need shoes with good arch support, so the virtual arch sounds like it would be totally helpful too!

I really need to invest in some of those. Because alot of my heels I have to get a larger size than I may wear in another shoes, because I have long an skinny feet, and I hate for my feet to slide to the front and look like my toes are hanging over my shoes, but the size down is too small and they'll do it without even sliding.

I get pedicures every other week during the summer, to keep the callouses at bay. Plus I get the added bonus of making sure my toes look their best at all times for all the sandal wearing. I do avoid heels whenever possible to avoid blisters, but in the rare case that I do have to wear them, I put mole skin in the shoes on those places that are most likely to rub and cause a blister.

I've tried talcum powder to help prevent rubbing but it's not a permanent fix. I can't wait to try these but I have tried others before and were dissappointed. The adhesive doesn't stick too well and makes a stickier mess than not having used one at all. Thanks for the tip!

I have never been able to wear high heels on a regular basis because I don't have very good support in my feet. But one of my girl friends told me about the Foot Petals line of things to help your feet. I don't know what it is, or why, but Foot Petals has done what no other brand could do for my feet. And I can now wear high heels comfortably and with the knowledge that I won't end up regretting it later!

Okay, first of all, my favorite product for my feet isn't a foot product at all. I use the Neutrogena bath oil stuff that I use on the rest of my body -- love the scent -- and do foot massages. Preferably in the bathtub, when my feet are wet, but any time is fine. Obviously I try to avoid shoes that are bad for my feet but that just doesn't happen. So when I get home from work, I IMMEDIATELY remove the painful-but-adorable shoes I tend to wear, and do a quick massage with the bath oil. Warm it a little in my hands. Give a good, quick rubdown. I'm telling you, this oil has made all the difference in the world in my feet. A quick massage when I first get home makes them feel better the rest of the night, and the oil has done such wonders for my skin that every time I get a pedicure the salon worker tells me I have beautiful feet!

These look like a perfect solution to some of my foot problems! I have both flat and wide feet, and it's always so hard to wear heels without getting blisters right away. I usually put on Band-Aids whenever I see potential blisters rising up, but other than that, I suffer through it all. Hopefully these work well!

Moleskin... I love it! Really cheap at any drugstore, it comes in sheets so you just cut off the size you need. Stick it in your shoes where you know they'll rub, or if you have a blister forming stick it right on your skin and the blister won't get any worse and won't hurt.

If I am wearing pumps I have low silk socks, that are so comfortable, and they can stop any blister in its tracks! :]

The typical phrase "beauty is pain" is something I've always dealt with. My "secret tip" or "secret ingredient" if you like is bandaids. I have issues with my heels... and my toes. I always get blisters from new very cute shoes especially. Does that stop me from wearing them?! NO! I just grab my box of bandaids, and slap one or two on, and I'm good to go!

Sometimes the only thing you can do is find some new ones! Although I'm faced this year with finding great heels I can walk in all day- not just sit at a desk- actually walk in. It's been hard to find a good brand. Anyone know of some comfortable heels?

I haven't worn heels in a long time. I wear comfortable, wide width shoes for example Merrell slides or strappy sandals that have arch support. In a dresser sandal, maybe something that has a much lower heel and I don't wear flats all day long either...it will damage your feet in the long run--bunions, hammer toes. Not a pleasant sight!

I have never tried these, but I have tried products like these. I think for a bigger girl, this problem can pose issues. I have found that similar product slip around in my shoe. I'm not sure how this product adheres, but I'm looking forward to trying it out!

After taking a shower i rub a little foot powder on me feet before slipping into my shoes. I really don't have a problem with my shoes when I'm wearing them it's when I take them off that I do. I just soak my feet in warm water and a little peperment oil and i feel better after and at night i wear light cotton socks over a good layer of lotion. In the morning my feet feel great.

Here is my little footsie treatment. First I soak my feet in warm water for 10 mins or so. Then I use the Cucumber facial mask on my feet. Its a cool treat for your feet in the hot summer heat.

I get blisters all the time and I recently started using Moleskin. It's available at any drugstore. You just cut it to the appropriate shape and stick it on your foot. It prevents rubbing really well and stays stuck even in the heat.

When I have cracked heels or arches, which is mainly in the summer, I come home from a long day, grab a book, fill my Conair foot spa with warm water and RELAX. The water soothes my pain and helps the cracks on my heels.

Whenever I am sitting somewhere I usually take my heels off, to give my feet a break, sometimes I'll try a band-aid, but a lot of times that doesn't work because it'll just rub off.

And now i have to wear arch supports in all my flat shoes...but they make my shoes comfier so its all good!

Not only do I wear uncomfortable shoes to work, but I run a lot which can wreak havoc on my feet. I use a scrub in the shower, and put on thick moisturizing lotion with socks at night. Old fashioned ideas, but they really work! Feet stay soft and do not get dead skin build up and blisters as much. A pedicure once a month really helps too.

If you are planning on wearing new shoes, make sure you wear them beforehand to break them in. Try to do it a few days to a week in advance to avoid blisters and other pains. Even wear them in your house or out to do a few errands.

Summer is deadly out here in Arizona...but that doesn't stop me from wearing killer high heels. So one of my best (favorite) tricks I do for my own feet is "Chill Therapy" I bought these cute mosturizing socks from Avon for about $5 bucks and whats cool about them is that the whole bottom and heel portions are covered in a Shea Butter Gel (and theyre reusable!) I throw the socks in the fridge for about 5 minutes while I apply the ELF cucumber/melon body butter to my feet, then I put on the socks for about 10-20 minutes and its so refreshing and it reduces swelling not to mention making my feet incrediably soft.

I try to keep my feet moisturized, especially in the summer. Once a week before I go to bed, I'll cover my feet liberally with a healing lotion and then put a light pair of socks on. In the morning it leaves your feet feelin super refreshed and ready for the day!

My favorite saying is, "form follows fashion; not function". Sometimes our feet pay the price to the shoe gods making our feet swell and sweating in pain but they look good in those heels. If I am going to wear uncomfortable shoes than I make sure it's somewhere like dinner where you sit mostly. I found that rubbing deodorant on the bottom of your feet helps to reduce the sweating. Best of luck ladies!

I have finally got the message about my sore feet. Bring others in various styles for reducing High heel pain, & don't buy shoes just because they are "soooooo cute". Another lesson I have learned is to go up one size if they are narrow. I am soo excited about these Foot Petals because they will keep my bare feet from sticking to my church shoes, I have tried powder,tape, but nothing is as "cute" & funtional as your Pink Foot Petals. Thank you for solving the strappy sandals dilemna for all the girls in my family. MayBaby

I believe that most foot pain are from wear the wrong size shoes. Just like clothes, you may have to go a size up or down depending on the brand.

I have flat feet, so to avoid constant soreness, I wear flat-bottom sneakers such as Vans or Converse rather than athletic shoes with high arches. It really makes a difference in how long I can be on my feet.

Those foot petals look very convenient. Usually, when I wear shoes that kill my feet, I just tell myself "beauty is painful." When I get home, I kick them off and soak my feet in hot water and pamper them by massaging moisturizing lotion on them! Then, I put on some comfortable slippers and call it a day. That is what I do.

Wow! This sounds amazing! In the summer (and all year round because I ballroom dance) I get annoying blisters on my feet from wearing heels and strappy dance shoes. Usually I apply bandaids or moleskin before putting on my shoes, but if your feet get sweaty there is a slight tendency for the bandaids to slip or fall off.

To avoid putting me feet through all that pain, I just don't wear heels. I mean, seriously, what makes women think they have to look taller and skinnier all of the time when tennis shoes are a gazillion times more comfortable. Plus, I'm already tall to begin with and wearing heels just makes me tower over people even more which I don't like. And for all you people that are thinking you can't wear tennis shoes to a formal event, they make cute, dressy, flats that don't cut into your feet. As for the sweaty feet, I don't have that problem so I don't really know anything about it.

This has worked for me for years and in all seasons. My skin is very dry, very prone to cracked heels. But this has worked wonders for me. Mix glycerine and rosewater in a container in a 40 to 60 ratio. Add half a teaspoon of lemon juice. Shake it well. You can change the ration according to the consisyency you like. I dont like it very sticky. Wash your feet every night before going to bed and apply this solution. You will see the wonders in 4-5 days. Enjoy!!!

I only wear shoes that are really my size. i refuse to squeeze my poor feet into a too small shoe. I give myself foot massages in the evenings while watching TV. I use peppermint foot cream and just work it in from my toes to my ankles. (i wear a lot of heels!) i also use the gel inserts to minimize the impact on the ball of my feet. Once a week, i give myself a mini-pedicure. Doing these things regularly really help lessen the foot pain.

After the first week at a job where dress shoes were required, I had obtained blisters on places I didnt even know I could get blisters. I'm really flat-footed which didn't make the matter any better. Along with carrying the occasional pair of flat shoes in my already full bag, I decided to go shopping for fancy shoes that dont hurt, and I did! My solution was a pair of short heeled, but pointy toes shoes. They look dressy enough to go with all my suits and pants and the heels dont border on stripper height.

I am on my feet for 8 hrs. every day. I like to work in those cute little shoes that remind me of ballerina slippers. but my problem is that they have no arch and I need one. so I just slip an arch support in them and I'm set. I don't wear them every day, just with capri pants. when I wear long pants I have special shoes with a spring on the heel of the shoe. It is a special brand, so I don't think I can reveal the name of them. but they are the best for me, because at the end of the day my feet don't hurt at all, as before they ached so bad that I couldn't go anywhere or do anything after work.
