Take Caroline for example, she’s an art director for a digital agency. She likes to wear heels to work, because they look great and they make her feel confident. She knows a long day in heels can put a strain on her feet, so she chooses to wear them on quiet days at the office.
But hold on Caroline, there’s a change of plan. The client just arrived in town and wants to meet today to make some last-minute changes in the campaign. That means new deadlines, new meetings and lots of walking around in panic.
First, Caroline has to meet with the client. Her hotel is three streets away – too close for a taxi or the subway, so Caroline walks, but in heels three streets can become a challenge. Walk back to the office, sit for 20 minutes and then it’s off to another meeting with the designer. She starts to feel a small burn on her left foot but there’s no time to deal with it.
She takes a cab, but the road is blocked by construction, so she has to walk five streets and now the pain is stronger. By lunch, Caroline has no steam. Blisters have developed on both feet and they’re making her miserable. If she was in comfortable shoes she’d be running around and controlling her team, but instead she’s suffering in her office, searching her desk for a bandage.
If only she stocked up on specialist blister bandages.
Blister bandages not only help when you’ve developed a blister by forming a protective cushion, they can also be used in advance of you getting a blister. Simply apply the cushioned pad to the area where your shoes are rubbing to help prevent a blister.
