Adorable but Painful: How to make Pointy Toe Shoes a bit more Comfortable

It is very true sometimes, the more wonderful and beautiful the shoe, the more pain your feet may endure. When I wrote the post on Hellish Heels and how to make them more comfortable, I completely forgot about how awful pointy toe shoes can be as well!

For Example, My Oxford Heels

My Oxford Heels

I absolutely love these shoes! I think I bought these leather oxford pumps about 5 years ago. But I regrettably have only worn them twice. Because they are so narrow at the top, it gets very uncomfortable, extremely quickly.

Any-who, I was going through my trunk of cosplay wonder and came across my Lambs Wool Toe Pillows. I purchased these to go with my Pointe shoes for the Dexter’s Laboratory Cosplay my sister and I did. They are very cheap and very comfortable!

Here is a couple shots of them 😀

I actually adjust the toe pillow on my foot first and then I slide my foot into the shoe. It is easier because then you can place them exactly where you need them to be. It really adds all around cushioning to the ball of my foot. Especially for those con days of constant walking around, these are a life saver 😀

I purchased mine at Discount Dance Supply for about $5.50.

Hellish Heels: A Secret To Making Them A Bit More Comfortable

So two years ago, I found a little trick for making heels a bit more comfortable. Especially when my 6 inch Catwoman heeled boots mocked me from the corner in which they sat.

See, they are still mocking me!

Anyway, this trick helped alleviate the pain in the ball of my foot. Which was a huge lifesaver!

The trick:
Tape your third and fourth toes (counting from your big toe) together using a nude medical tape.

Why does this Work?
There is a nerve that splits between those two toes. This nerve causes pain when pressure is added. By taping these two toes together, it removes the strain on the nerve. Thus, allowing you to enjoy strutting your amazing cosplay through the con and any photo shoots you may endure:D

Nexcare makes a nude tape that also has cushioning, this is a great tape to just have handy for all your cosplay and reality situations :3)
