New leather slip ons...painful heels!!!

How do you get the leather at the back of your ankle to NOT peel the skin off?

I know that you have to break-in gloves...can this same thing be used for shoes?

I don't want to have to always wear a bandaid and I can't wear socks with them.

  • there are inserts you can buy just at your local drug store, shoe store, etc that attach to the shoe and keep it from rubbing your feet raw. These are what I use. They're clear so you can't see them outside the shoe.

  • i develop callas on the back of my ankle and wear them in.. it won't happen forever, just until your feet get used to your shoes.
