How To Stop Your Shoes From Hurting
I couldn't find a thread on this but please merge it if there is already a thread like this.

I got Keds and I wore them today. I walked for about half an hour and the back of my feet are really hurting and stinging because the skin peeled off . What can I do to stop it from hurting in future? Got any tips?

You can try sticking heel liners in the backs, they're supposed to help prevent rubbing and blistering. I've seen foam ones like the ones from Dr. Scholl's here and also clear gel ones from Airplus for Her, but I found that the gel ones can get slippery when your feet sweat. I know they make heel grips in suede but I don't know about heel liners, you'd think suede would last longer in your shoes than foam but I don't know which is best for keeping your skin from rubbing.

These work a lot with closed shoes- and the colour is similar to skin so it won't show http://www.fieldandtrek.com/images/products/25542_m.jpg

Those Dr. Scholl's heel liners are absolutely the best things ever! I have them in all of my shoes, it's amazing what a difference they make.

Wafaya, Sport bandaids or fabric bandaids are good to use on peeled heels. They are thicker than regular bandaids, more padded and stay on a lot longer. The other type of bandaid that also works well are the rubber/blister ones that create an air cushion between the bruise and the bandaid (see pic).

For breaking them in, wear them with wet socks for about half an hour around your house. Be sure to walk most of the time, though.
I did that once with a pair of ballet flats and they were perfectly comfortable afterwards.
