High Heels Headaches

f-0c

Aches and pains from high heels are usually associated with your feet, but sometimes high heels can give you a headache, too.You are out wearing your favorite patent leather high heels du jour and you scuff them. What’s a poor girl to do about her favorite shoes?

Is there a cure for her high heel headache.Abby at Vivian Lou has a few solutions.

Acetone-free nail polish remover Dab some acetone-free nail polish remover on a cotton ball or Qtip and rub over the scuff mark to remove it. Be careful not to let the nail polish remover sit on the surface of the shoes for an extended period of time.

This will risk compromising the patent leather and may remove some of the shine and color. Rub petroleum jelly or baby oil over the area to keep the patent leather from drying out.Similar suggestions: Rubbing alcohol, make up wipe, hand sanitizer

*This is the method I used, and it worked beautifully!*

Baby oilDab baby oil on a cotton ball and rub the scuffed area. Wipe with a clean damp cloth.

Similar suggestions: Petroleum jelly, mineral oil, vegetable oil ToothpasteUsing a cloth, apply a small amount of toothpaste to the scuff and scrub in a circular motion. Add more toothpaste as needed. Wipe the paste off with a clean damp cloth and dry.

Similar suggestions: Baking soda and water Pencil eraserTry erasing the scuff as you would a pencil mark.Similar suggestions: Rubber band Miscellaneous bathroom itemsTry shaving cream or Nivea cream (not the lotion) to clean and polish patent leather.

Miscellaneous cleaning solutionsTry Mr. Clean magic eraser, Comet or Ajax, Goo Gone or Fast Orange (a hand cleaner that mechanics use to clean grease and grime off their hands).

Here’s to keeping your patent leather shoes as shiny as the day you purchased them.Abby adds…And to wear your shiny shoes 4x longer without pain, consider adhering Vivian Lou Insolia weight-shifting insoles – the only insole scientifically-proven to prevent pain caused by low, mid and high heels.

These amazing insoles adjust the pitch and position of the foot in the shoe to shift weight to the heel and stop your feet from slipping forward.Whenever I buy a new pair of high heel pumps, I always insert a pair of Insolia insoles in my new shoes before I wear them out.

They definitely extend the comfortable wearing time of my killer heels and I never leave home without them.
