Style For Style: Sweaty Feet Fix

I have these Theory Mirror leather sandals ($207) in pewter and have been wearing them to death — they are a great alternative to black shoes and the criss-cross style is very modern. But never have I worn them when I was in hot weather, and so, I recently found out they have a slippery inside. I was caught in this dilemma while living it up in LA at Hills' hangout Les Deux with PartySugar. I was so nervous slipping around in my shoes, I had to find a quick solution.

To see my fix for sweaty feet,


First I tried Band-Aids on the bottoms of my feet and, duh, they totally slipped around, too. Then, I remembered that bathroom attendants at such chichi clubs as Les Deux having everything you could possibly need. I was saved when the lovely attendant handed me some Johnson's Baby Powder ($5). A $5 tip and problem solved.

I recommend testing any new shoes in a warmer climate before going out. Walk around the house for a half hour when you're getting ready and if you feel any slippage, powder your feet. Rest assured, now you know you can definitely dance the night away.

I use anti-perspirant on the bottom of my feet(I like the one from Kiehl's b/c it goes on like a lotion) and let it dry completely before putting on my shoes. I like the baby powder idea too so I am going to try putting on baby powder after the anti-perspirant to stop the sweating.

I had this problem just last night! I will definitely try this tip and maybe the foot petals thing. Thanks for the tip!

Love those shoes! It's hot pretty much year round here and I've never had a problem with slippery shoes. Hmmm.

What I dont like about baby powder is that with time it leaves a film in your shoes that is pretty hard to take off. The petals sound like a good idea.

I've seen those foot petals, VolleyJen14! I'll have to pick some up...they sound great for heels like these (which are gorgeous BTW, Fab)!

Another great solution that I've used and come in really handy in NYC is foot petals..... they are great for padding too and help stop slippage while walking, dancing, dealing with the humid summers =/
