Tips on Tuesdays
So, you have a beautifully made leather-lined pair of shoes. You slip your feet into them and walk across the room and notice that you are slipping around inside.
You bought the right size!
Smooth leather lining has long been the mark of quality shoes but leaves a little to be desired when it comes to feeling secure in your shoes.
What to do?
If the shoes are barefoot friendly that should pretty much solve the problem because a 'lil sweat will help ya stick. If, however, the shoes require socks or you prefer to wear socks (which will extend the life of your shoes) I have a solution for you.
If you simply take a candle and rub it on the leather insole where your heel strikes and where the ball of your foot bends-- you will find that you no longer have the sensation of sliding around inside your shoe. The candle wax won't ruin your shoes or your socks unless you go overkill with the wax. Once you have worn the shoes a dozen or so times the lining will naturally become less slick. Thus, you may only need to apply the wax a few times.
Feel free to wax your leather insoles anytime or wax poetic if the mood strikes you...

Today is my birthday and I appreciate all the well wishes and love that I am surrounded by.
Being born on this February day makes me a Pisces according to astrology and the funny thing is that each sign has a corresponding body part and sure enough mine is feet!
So on the threshold of this personal new year I shall reflect, give my tootsies a much needed pedicure, celebrate, adore all the shoes that have been added to my collection on each birthday and ponder new soles:)
cheers, abigail dagmar
The famed Chaco sandal company began a new adventure in 2003 by introducing closed-toe footwear.
While the path had its' challenges they proved it was worth the climb...
And I feel lucky to be a Chaconian:)
