New shoe pains? - January 2nd 2018, 08:02 PM

So I have these nice new shoes, which are black and go with my best outfits and so on. I'm just wondering if it may take some time to get used to them. You do not know how painful they have been.

Okay, so here's how it is, I got them 4 days ago and have made progress in that the left shoe is fine now, so I don't get why the right shoe/foot still feels like agony.

Please if anyone has tips on this let me know and do share your own "how i got used to my shoes" stories to humor me if any of you have been through that same problem

Depending on where the pain is, you can wear Band-Aids to prevent the shoe from rubbing on your foot and causing a blister while you get used to the shoe.

Hey,
So first up, do the shoes fit. If there is sufficient room for your feet that's good, otherwise, it could explain the pain.
Dez has already explained about blisters.
If you're hiking/running or something in these shoes, check their cushioning etc. A pair of my shoes had crap cushioning and my feet ached when I ran.
It does take some time for feet and shoes to adjust, but you shouldn't be in agony. If you have an issue in your feet, perhaps get a doctor to check the shoes + your feet and that could explain it.
Hope this helps

Firstly, do the shoes fit? One of the biggest reasons (not the only) that shoes cause pain is because they are slightly too small. If they fit than it might be dependent on the type of shoe you bought. All shoes can take a bit of time to adjust to but some can take a bit more. For example, the dressier shoes I have that I wear to interviews do hurt and cause blisters because I don't wear them a ton and because they are a tad bit too narrow.

I also walk in an odd way. I tend to notice that I walk on the side of my feet at times and that can cause a number of issues as well as making it painful to wear certain shoes.

I agree that you shouldn't be in agony though. Shoes take time to adjust too but the pain usually isn't that extreme. If you are experience that type of pain it would be a good idea to get in with a doctor to make sure everything is fine.

Best regards.

Hey there!

Like others have mentioned, do the shoes fit? If the shoes are too small, they will hurt. Also, shoes do need to be broken in and that should take some time but it shouldn't be causing you huge amounts of pain.

For some of my fancier shoes like heels, flats, or sandals, I find it takes a bit longer to wear in and for them to feel comfortable. You could try taking it to a shoe repair store or even some shoe stores, to see if they could be stretched. They have these machines that can stretch your shoes to make them fit more comfortably.

You can also look into inserts/insoles that could help if the cushioning/support in the shoes is lacking. I had a pair that hurt the bottoms of my feet because of the lack of support, which was solved with inserts. If you are getting blisters from the shoes, there are special blister band-aids that are super helpful. You can also use moleskin to prevent rubbing. I used it whenever I break in new skates and sometimes shoes.

However, if your feet are still causing you pain, you should get it checked out by a doctor to make sure everything is okay!

Hope you manage to get it sorted out. Take care.

Re: New shoe pains? - January 3rd 2018, 08:33 PM

there's definately no trouble with the end of the toes pushing up against the shoes, as i can feel them at the end and theres still space. I did try them without socks and it was easier somewhat.
let's just say: they are good for being somewhere nice but not for walking anywhere. Like i'm thinking i ought to get a taxi into town when i go out at the end of the month because all the walking is too much effort in those shoes
but i've come to think they are not all bad and they will be good for something

Hey
Yeah some shoes are the "fashion shoes" and are awful to walk in. I like your idea of taking a taxi. Hope it helps.

Hey there! I'm glad that you have figured out a use for the shoes. I agree with the above poster, some shoes are not comfortable but are more for fashion. Taking a taxi is a good idea because it can save your feet from the pain from a long walk.

Since it appears that the issue has been resolved, I am going go ahead and close this thread. If you would like me to reopen this thread, please send me a PM.

Take care.
