okie so it wasn’t smart of me to try on my shoes two weeks before the wedding and try to break them in…
yesterday i went for a 10-20 min walk and my feet now has multiple blisters 🙁
anything you guys can think of to help me break in wedding shoes? or should i just go to an old pair (not that anyone really sees it anyways).
thanks in advance!

Have you tried foot petals? They make "padding" for many specific places that shoes tend to rub. I would give that a shot.

I’ve been trying to break mine in by wearing them around the house whenever I think about it. I’d recommend trying different types of padding and wearing them a bit here and a bit there to see if you can get used to them.

I’d wear them around the house as much as you can with a pair of socks. If you still get blisters, maybe wear a different pair? The last thing you want to be doing is hobbling around on your wedding day!

Actually it was probably a good thing you found out the shoes hurt your feet now than have to hobble your way thorugh your wedding day! I second foot petals — I’ve heard good things about them, but I think the most important thing is just wearing them as much as you can (with at least some protection for those sensitive areas of your feet) so your feet will be used to them on the day of.

there’s this awesome product that you can find near the band-aids. It’s called Band-Aid Blister Block. It’s made by Johnson and Johnson and looks like a tiny deodorant. You rub it where you get blisters and it makes that area slippery so that the shoe won’t rub against your foot and cause blisters. I have a tube of it and carry it with me when I go to weddings to reapply as necessary.

The foot petals are a wonderful! I wore them when I went to prom, which was a several, several years ago, but I had no problem dancing the night away with them! I second the trying to wear socks with them.
Are they heels or flats? If they are flats you might be able to get away with a pair of the cute low cute socks for dolls shoes on your wedding day.
