How to Break In a New Pair of ShoesUpdated 4 months ago

Say goodbye to sore feet!

Excited to slip into your fresh pair of ALOHAS? We know how you feel. But before you hit the pavement, take a moment to properly break them in. Trust us, it’ll save you from potential discomfort later on.

Want to know how? Here’s our advice.

1.  Whether it’s strappy sandals or lace-up boots, make sure to fasten your footwear snugly. This prevents your feet from sliding around and causing blisters.

2. Walking in high heels around the house might not be what you're used to. Nonetheless, we highly recommend starting to wear your new shoes at home, so if they start hurting, you can take them off and give your feet a break anytime.

3. Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize! It might sound like a skincare tip, but trust us, it works wonders. Apply a generous layer of cream or petroleum jelly to prevent friction between your feet and shoes, especially if you live in a dry climate or have dry skin.

4. Opt for chunky socks. Not only do they provide a protective barrier for your feet, but they also help stretch out your shoes, regardless of the material. 

5. Take it step by step. Gradually increase the amount of time you wear your ALOHAS until they feel comfortable. It might take a little while, but your patience will be rewarded.
