A pair of high heeled shoes has been the best friend of women since thousands of years. It helps them to stand up taller, look slimmer, and feel more confident. It is a style statement for ladies wearing heels. But it is equally important to take care of these pretty heels as these will support you in the long haul. So here are tips on how to take care of those pretty heels.

HOW TO TAKE CARE OF HIGH HEELSDEODORANT TRICK

Roll transparent deodorant beneath any area of the shoe (straps, in particular) to prevent chafing. This will help it to gently glide instead of rub!

GET SHOE RACK

Limited on space? A shoe rack is a great way to keep all your shoes organized and in place. They also help protect your footwear and keep them in good shape. Look for a sturdy, expandable one you easily accommodate anywhere.

LET THEM BREATHE

Never neglect a pair of soaked shoes. A wet pair that never properly dries can encourage a fungal foot infection as well as lead to discoloration. Leave them out in a cool, dry place with sufficient air circulation. To speed up the process, I like to take my blow-dryer and dry it for a few minutes on low heat settings.

HEEL STOPPERS

Heel stoppers are usually available in various types and brands. Therefore, in choosing the heel stoppers make sure you choose the ones that will fit and slide easily onto your high heels. In order to keep you looking stylish even with the heel stoppers put on, you may as well choose the ones that come with the colour matching your shoes. Alternatively, you can choose the transparent ones.

MAKE THEM WATERPROOF

Most high heels are not waterproof right out of the factory. Instead, you’ll have to make them waterproof yourself. Fortunately, this is quite easy. Polishing your high heels with some quality water repellents will help protect your favourite shoes from water. Better yet, most water repellents tend to protect the shoes from dirt, grime and household spills as well.

REMOVE STAINS

Oil spots or other similar stains may also ruin the look of your shoes. Hence, you should clean them as well. Fortunately, you can do this quite easily by means of some white chalk powder. Scrape the powder over the stain and then set the heels down and give them a moment so that the powder will be absorbed by the shoes. After about 5 to 10 minutes, you can wipe off the excessive chalk powder which is no longer useful.
