To wear socks or not to wear socks that is the question. Socks make our feet feel better but vanity will suppress our need for comfort because we don’t like how this looks! There are some wonderful products that are available that can give you comfort without the look of wearing socks!
The truth is we like the look of wearing shoes without socks but that can have painful consequences; blisters, calluses and smelly feet.
I think I have a solution for you with a new product I have been using called
Gekks— These are shoe liners that grip the interior of your shoes with the help of a velcro adhesive strip. Gekks will add a whole new level of comfort to them to your shoes. These sock liners will stay in place and are machine washable.
Here is their story. They easily fit inside your sneakers,loafers and ballet flats. They are able to stay in place with an adhesive or gripper that is first attached to the heel and sole of the shoe. The claim is that the techno-material they are made of will prevent odor.
Here’s my plug—they actually work!! Get the 3 pack for $47. They are worth every penny!!
However, there are those days when you want to wear socks but you also want the no sock look.
Nylon peds just don’t provide enough comfort and they have a tendency to slip off.
Try Bombas—they are made in cotton and the cut is fuller so they won’t slide off your foot.
Here are some tips for other shoe issues
For heel rub—Try Heavenly Heelz by Foot Petals
Too much pressure on the balls of your feet?—foot cushion by Foot Petals will help
Do the straps of your slingbacks fall off your heel?—Try Strappy Strips.
All of these have an adhesive side which keep your cushions in place
Here is my last tip:
I love my Vans, Supergas and the like but what I find is that there is not enough support for long walks. This is an easy fix.
Gel inserts are the best! You can get them at any drugstore and they will provide the extra cushioning you need.These are such a game changer for me that I have them is most of my flats.
Eat well, laugh a lot and be chic!
