    7 Ridiculously Easy Ways To Make Your Shoes Hella Comfortable

    Your dogs will be barking no more.

    1. Line the inside of a shoe with a panty liner to absorb sweat and to keep your foot from slipping.

    Added bonus: Removing the liner at the end of the day will also remove any of the odors that could have otherwise seeped into your shoes, causing them to smell bad.

    2. Tape your third and fourth toes together before wearing heels.

    These two toes share a nerve that can become strained when the toes are separated, which can happen when you're wearing heels for too long. Taping the toes together can help to alleviate the pain caused by that separation.

    3. Sandpaper the soles of the shoes for better traction.

    Focus on the ball of your foot and your heel, the points of the shoe that hit the ground on each step.

    4. Use Strappy Strips Foot Cushions in the straps of your heels to keep from getting cuts and blisters.

    Carry the spray in your bag so you can reapply if necessary. You can get this one, marketed as a tattoo numbing spray, here for $21.99.

    7. Spray the inside of your heels with hairspray so your foot doesn't slip around.

    Go forth and wear your shoes in peace, guys.
