one objective is then to protect our feet from the cold. Nevertheless, locked

slippery soles, there is indeed something to take its boots in influenza. And
let’s not even talk about the perspiration that macerates in them and leaves
indescribable odors. So, to be well in your shoes, here are the unavoidable

Between
the dead leaves on the ground and the sheets of ice, our shoes are improvising
themselves as ice skates! To avoid it, cut a potato in half and rub the flesh
on the sole. This way, you will deposit starch on it and it will prevent
slipping. For a longer-lasting result, also remember to scratch them with
sandpaper to give them back their grip.

2) Against
humidity inside the shoes

If your soles
start to come off, the first step will obviously be to repair them. Otherwise,
they will not be able to remain impermeable to rainwater and snow even with all
the waterproofing sprays in the world. The quality of the special glue used to
glue them back together should not be skimpy, as the quality of the repair
depends on it. Preferably, apply to both surfaces to be glued and leave on for
at least one hour. And if snow has managed to infiltrate, use newspaper to
absorb the humidity.

3) For
uncomfortable pairs

If your new shoes
are stiff and hurt your feet, soften them over a pot of boiling water. After a
few minutes, they will become more comfortable. You can also soften leather by
rubbing it regularly with turpentine. You will only have to polish it with
glycerine to make it more pleasant. For rubber boots that have lost their
suppleness, you can maintain them with egg whites or glycerine water.

 4) Make their
varnish shine :

Varnished shoes
can become dull with wear and time. To avoid this, polish your shoes with lemon
juice, milk, or window cleaner.
Shine guaranteed! 

5) When you have
chosen a model too small :

If being cramped
in your ballerinas is already unpleasant, being in your boots or booties is
even more so! So if your pairs are too tight, put on a big pair of socks and
the shoes in question. Then soften them by blowing for a few moments on the
areas that make you suffer with the hairdryer. Otherwise, put a freezer bag
filled with water in it and freeze it.
The bag will swell and slightly enlarge the shoes!
