Tip 2 – Get Your Big and Fluffy Socks Ready! 


If you find that your new pair of block heels are a little tight around your feet when you first try them on, then we have the perfect solution for you. When this occurs, it is a sign that you need to break in your new pair of block heels. 


Of course, the best way to do this with some block heels that are too tight around your feet is to grab your favourite pair of big and fluffy socks. Now, you may be wondering why you might need some big and fluffy socks? Well, these soft guys will help you to break in your new pair of block heels. 


All you have to do is put your pair of fluffy socks on and slip your feet into your block heels. Once you are ready, you can spend some time walking around the house in these shoe styles or just relaxing on the couch and watching some Netflix.

One of our hot tips for breaking in your pair of block heels is bending and twisting the material. So spend some time playing around with your new pair of block heels and see how quickly this tip can help to break in your new pumps.


For those customer creating ways to break-in, we highly recommend spending some time with your new pair of block heels so you can break them in with ease. Some materials can feel quite stiff or hard to wear, which is why breaking them in is super helpful. 


If you spend some time bending and twisting the shoes around, you will find that the material will loosen up. Once the material starts to become loose, it means that these block heels are ready to wear to your next event. 


Breaking these block heels in by bending and twisting the material around is a time-efficient way to get your shoes ready to wear to any special event or day full of running errands. 


Tip 4 – Find Your Blow-Dryer!


Who would have thought that a blow dryer could help you to break in your new pair of pumps? Well, it certainly can! All you have to do is turn on and run the blow dryer over your new pair of block heels for approximately 1-2 minutes. 


This method allows the heat from the blow dryer to soften the shoe material and loosen the way it sits against your feet. This tip is super helpful for leather shoes; however, it is necessary to remember that this material can overheat.


To avoid this from happening, ensure you blow-dry your new pair of pumps evenly instead of directly in one spot. Then, to see if this method has worked on your shoes, all you have to do is try them on a few moments after you have blow-dried the material and see how they fit your feet. 


If the pair of shoes still does not feel as comfortable as you would like, run the blow-dryer over these pumps again and repeat the process until you are happy with the fit. 


Tip 5 – Use Some Sandpaper!


Okay, now you probably think we are the looneys after reading what this next tip is. But girl, trust us when we say a piece of sandpaper will help break in your new block heels. The way to use a piece of sandpaper when breaking in your new arrivals block heels is to rub it over the surface of your new shoes. 


This tip will create more traction with the bottom of your shoes and the ground you walk on. Using sandpaper on the bottom of your new shoes is helpful because sometimes a new pair of pumps have a very smooth base, which can lead to you slipping over. 


This can occur if you walk on wet or smooth surfaces, and you start to notice your shoes slipping. To avoid any injuries, rub some sandpaper on the bottom of the shoes for a couple of minutes. Once the bottom of the pumps feels rougher, your block heels should be good to go. You will no more worry about slipping over when you wear these broken-in pumps! 


Tip 6 – Some Extra Tips And Tricks!


There are a few other little hacks that you can use to break in your new pair of pumps. We know what works best when breaking in your block heel, and that is to wear some band-aids on your feet in places where the material sits tighter. 


When breaking in your new pumps, it is almost inevitable to experience some blisters and sore feet. This issue is due to your feet trying to get used to a new pair of pumps. Spraying your feet with deodorant will ensure they smell good and reduce the amount of friction that can occur. 


Find some roll-on deodorant and spread it over your feet so there is a smooth layer between the material and your feet which can reduce any friction from occurring. We also recommend wearing some half gel innersoles in your shoes to increase the level of comfort you get from your new pumps. These can help your feet adjust to the new block heel sandals and make the breaking-in process a lot easier.
