Sandals are the ultimate in warm-weather footwear; along with being casually comfortable, they can look great with skirts, shorts, and trousers.  In fact, nothing says “summer” and “relaxation” quite like wearing a pair of these simple sandals.

 However, because many women aren’t used to wearing sandals, they find that after wearing them for a few hours that their feet hurt.  Painful blisters can develop in the areas where the straps meet between the toes and in areas where the straps come into contact with the sides of the feet.  Another common problem is that some women find the soles of their feet hurt because the bottom part of the sandals doesn’t offer much shock absorption.  So how can these problems be resolved?

 Sandals and flip flopsare like any other sort of shoe that you buy:  your feet need to get used to them.  A mistake some people make with flip-flops is that they will wear them immediately after purchase for a few hours.  The best thing to do is bring the sandals home and wear them inside the house for short periods of time.  This will allow the skin on your feet to get used to the straps and also lets your skin “toughen up” in the blister-prone areas. By wearing the sandals for short amounts of time, it gives the muscles in your feet the chance to strengthen so they won’t get sore when you decide to wear your sandals outside of the house.

Another trick some women do when they wear sandals is to use small clear plasters on their feet in the areas where the straps will rub sensitive skin.  This solution is ideal if you want to wear your new flip-flops immediately.

Here at Shuphoric we have an amazing collections of sandals to chose from. View our selection of different colours and styles online here https://shuphoric.com/collections/sandals
