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.
