    Tips for protecting feet from summer dryness

    In summer, women tend to go barefoot when wearing pumps and sandals. As airy and comfortable as this can be, because of this habit they often experience “keretined” (dry heels) foot. And as we’re sure you aware, this condition can be a somewhat embarrassing look. So we’d like to share with you some steps that can be easily taken to prevent this level of dryness on your feet.

    Step one: As soon as you get home from a day out in the sun, wash your feet. Then apply foot cream, and try to wear cotton socks until you turn in for bed. This will significantly protect your feet from drying out. There are many different types of foot cream to choose from, so feel free to experiment until you find the product that works best for you.

    Step two:Try to wear no-show socks even when you do wear pumps or high heels. *Even when you do, don’t forget to put foot cream on. And if you choose to wear sandals, bring along packaged wet tissue and foot cream, and wipe down your foot and apply the cream every few hours.

    Step three: If you have severely rough, dried heels, soak your foot in warm water for about 10 or 15 minutes, then use a foot scrubber. We don’t recommend that you save your heels, as it’s possible to get a bacterial infection by doing so. And while you’re doing this process, be sure to give your feet a massage for a few minutes here and there – you’ll find that it will help bolster the overall health of your feet.

    If you remember to do all of the above every day during the summer heat, you’ll enjoy this season in the sun so much more. So step softly, and be comfortable!

  • Enamel shoes

    Enamel shoes are extremely shiny, so if you desire to express yourself in a cute, vivid manner, they are the perfect choice. However, pulling off this impression is only possible when they’re glossy, and possess a true shine. Otherwise, wearing enamel shoes marred by dirt, or engulfed by dullness, will make you appear as a country girl who just stepped off the bus into the big city. Enamel shoes can maintain their charm if you simply polish them with a lotion. But remember, using a shoe polish can have a contrary effect because a shoe polish shine results in making the enamel shoes significantly glossier. Before you apply lotion, you should dust them off with a piece of soft cloth. Enamel shoes tend to stretch more than real leather shoes, so if you wear the same pair daily, note that their shape will change easily. Also keep in mind that if they are constantly exposed to a cool climate, they might crack. Therefore, it’s a good idea to only wear them once in a while during the cold months. And when you decide to put them away for a while, remember to place some balled up newspapers into the instep. By OHSHOEDESIGNS

  • Leather shoes

    Shoes that are made from real leather are expensive, so it is good to know how to keep them in good condition for a long time. Here are some tips! First, before you wear them, lightly put leather shoe polish all over them. This should help to protect them from getting some light scratches and a shot life. Second, anytime after coming back home, dust off your leather shoes with a cloth, clean them with a cleaner, and apply leather polish. One thing you should know about using leather polish is that a liquid leather shoe polish is for common leather, and an emulsified cream is for real leather. Last, put some newspapers into the shoes, and keep them in a cool area. Be aware that the best function of real leather shoes is that to absorb all the sweat, so it is very impotent to dry them in natural cool air. Plus, wearing real leather shoes two days in a row is not good. By OHSHOEDESIGNS.COM

  • Suede shoes

    We all know suede and water don’t mix, and it’s such a bummer when your shoes get caught in an unexpected storm. But there is hope! Once inside, use either a smalltowel or a scrap of newspaper and firmly press down on the fabric to absorb the moisture. Next, stuff crumpled balls of newspaper into each shoe. Place the shoes in a shady, cool spot. Once dry, brush shoes carefully with a clean brush to remove dirt, following suede-care instructions. Do not try to remove any stain or smudge with water, as it will discolor the suede. We also suggest that you buy a suede protector spray, which will extend your shoes’ life, keeping them in good condition longer. By OHSHOEDESIGNS

  • Velvet shoes

    Some special day you want to be a princess, so you decide to put on your velvet shoes. However, when a little smudge or dirt gets on them, you panic! But washing them with water can potentially ruin the velvet shine and texture, and rubbing them with a shoe brush also may destroy their soft surface. Here is a solution. First, you should completely blow dry them to eliminate all moisture, and then pat off the dust (Don’t brush it off) by hand as carefully as possible. At this point, you should make sure not to tear the velvet. After repeating those steps a few times, remove the remaining dust with a piece of dried sponge. Finally, use the small or smallest air intake part of a vacuum cleaner to inhale any other fine dust. Sometimes using a vacuum cleaner to clean velvet clothes or shoes is necessary because it not only sucks in fine dust, but also helps to lift up velvet textures. In general, you should try to keep velvet shoes separate from other pairs so they won’t get pressed down. Remember, velvet shoes are meant to remain soft and full of its natural texture!
