Top Ways to Fix Shoe Bites

1Freeze the shoes

Freeze the shoes

Have you ever tried freezing your shoes? No, no! I am not asking you to throw your shoes in the freezer. Well, if you haven’t tried doing this, get to know the tricks of it. So why do new shoes give you shoe bites? That is because your shoes are either too tight for your legs or the material is a little ditzy and makes you a foot rub against it which causes irritation. So, when you feel like that, the best remedy for you is to take a zip lock bag and fill the bag with extremely cold water.
Now use the zip lock and stuff it inside the shoes and leave it aside for a few hours or overnight. Now, you can easily wear it the next day because the cold water in the shoes would have frozen the shoes which means that the leather or the material easily expands as and when the water freezes the shoes. After once or twice of this trick, it becomes easier for you wear your shoes whenever you desire to!



Vaseline is the best medicine for almost everything. From rashes to shoe bites, it sure helps you get a hand on your rashes.

All you have to do is just rub some Vaseline on to your feet and let it dry for a while. Apply it basically on the areas where your leg is sore or you feel it itching. Wait for a minute or two and then slip your legs into the new shoes. Tada! You won’t feel a thing after that!
