New shoes? Here are some tips on how to take care of them (and wearing them in the snow ain't one of them 😬!) - I take the ones I wear more often to a cobbler and have them put on a thin (red if they're #ChristianLouboutin) rubber sole. That does not only prevent me from slipping when wet outside but also prevent the original sole from getting damaged and eventually ruined. As soon as the heel tips are a bit damaged I have them replaced (also by a cobbler). I never walk on the actual spikes, that will ruin the heels. When traveling I put tissue paper inside the toe part, to keep the shape of the shoe, and then in a shoe pouch. If the shoes has stones, feathers or anything else that is fragile, I wrap the entire shoe in tissue paper before placing them in a shoe pouch. I never pack the shoes standing up but on their sides and I never place anything heavy on top of them. The best way to break in new shoes is to apply lotion (any one will do) on your feet before slipping on the shoes and keep re-applying thru out the night. Works wonders for me! It keeps pain and blisters away. If the shoes are too big I ask my cobbler to put an insole under the original insole or put in a heel grip, sometimes both depending on model. Ask your sales associate for cobbler recommendations. All this might feel like too much for some but for me it's worth it. I pay quite a lot for my shoes and the better I take care of them the longer they last. 😘😘New shoes?
