Since I’m planning on wearing a very high heel between the hours of 10 am and 2 am on the day of my wedding, I’m looking into a product that will help me avoid blisters and pain associated with friction.. so far, I’m considering new-skin (the liquid bandage) and footglide. Does anyone have any experience with these or a better alternative?

The two most important factors in avoiding blisters are
1) Make sure the shoes fit well and
2) Make sure the shoes are made well, of quality material.

I am a runner and I swear by Bodyglide. I am not familiar with footglide. I have used Bodyglide with dress shoes succesfully.
May I also suggest that you try to break your shoes in by wearing them around the house. And maybe you’ll break your feet in, too, as you develop calluses where needed.

I used Dr. Scholl’s For Her Rub Relief for a wedding I went to and I really liked it. I actually put it on after my shoes started rubbing my feet and I think it worked. I would suggest trying a few different things out before your wedding so you can be sure it will actually work.

I always use body glide when I run, but I’ve never used it with heels. With heels I use foot petals for comfort, and I get the little strips that go on the back of my heel, so that may help with blisters as well.

This isn’t a product suggestion, but I break in really high heels by wearing them around the house with thick socks for a couple of days. They rarely give me blisters after that.

I also am a fan of bodyglide for blisters. I often put it on my feet in the morning before I put on sandals or other shoes that might rub. Even though it lasts awhile, I’d throw a stick of it in your emergency kit in case blisters crop up halfway during the event. It can help keep them from being super painful.

Thanks everyone! I’ll definitely check out bodyglide!
Miss Scarlet, I always parade around the house in new shoes, but I’ve never thought of a thick sock.. awesome suggestion!
