Did you know that applying heat to some shoes can help soften them? This simple method involves wearing your shoes with socks and then using a hairdryer (on its highest setting) to blast uncomfortable areas with heat for a couple of minutes. All the while, you should be wiggling your toes. You need to be mindful not to overheat your shoes, especially if they’re leather. If you feel your feet getting too hot, take a break. However, you shouldn’t remove your shoes until they’ve cooled. It can also be very helpful to walk around in warm shoes to help mold them to your feet. This method should help your shoes feel comfier, but you may need to repeat the process a few times. Clearly, this won’t work with all types of shoes. You need to be mindful of the materials; plastic and PVC, for example, should definitely not be treated this way.
