I take my foot wear very seriously and happy feet are a must in my book! But I find it easy to write off those tender heels and arch aches and chalk it up to the mentality that beauty is pain. Well after too many killer heels (literally and figuratively), I’ve decided to get smart and serious about my foot care! Through the blogosphere and IG, I had heard a lot of positive reviews about Solemates and their thorough line of foot care products. So I figured I would try as many as I could and maybe like one or two… because who ever really loves every single product??? Well let me tell you, I did and I do! Holy moly, these products really do work. And well, to boot! <— So punny, I know🙂
You know when you are dressed to the nines in your favorite summer party dress and an adorable pair of strappy heels? And you are feeling fierce girl! Then you realize that not only is it an outdoor wedding, but that you (in your heels) have to walk what seems to be a mile on grass to get to your seat. And with every step you take, your heels sink deep into the dewy ground. You get to your seat and your worst fears are confirmed, you have about 3 inches of mud and dirt on your precious party heels! Sure, if they’re patent then they’ll just wipe off, but what if they’re not?! Not only does your fierce attitude and confidence plummet, but your absolute favorite pair of heels are ruined! This has happened to me one too many times and I am happy to say it never will again thanks to Solemates and these super smart, functional, and sleek heel caps that prevent you from sinking into the grass!
I don’t know about you, but I am tough on my shoes. Especially those few pairs that I wear 2-4x a week (umm hello nude heels, I am talking to you!), and I love a product that gives me even more wear and longevity! This shoe buff is super convenient thanks to it’s little handy-dandy holder, and works like a charm. I had it in my purse last week and I am so happy I did because right before heading into an awards banquet dinner, I looked down at my shoes to see that they were in desperate need of some TLC. I was so relieved to have my shoe buff in my tote and after just a few swipes, my kicks were looking refreshed and rejuvenated!
We spend good money on our shoes and handbags and you can be darn sure that I will do everything I can to ensure that they stay beautiful for years to come! So I was quite eager to try the Solemates Leather Protector spray, seeing that winter is right around the corner (like snow this Friday people!) and I have a few leather goods that I needed to winterize. Well I kiiiiiind of went to town because I literally sprayed everything with this! My favorite gray leather Tory Burch satchel, a few other Kate Spade leather bags, and pretty much every pair of shoes I own. This protectant can be used on shoes or handbags. Trust me when I say that it is imperative to protect your prized investments from rain, salt, snow, or sleet! Just like we wax our cars to prevent rust and fading paint, we need to be sure to protect our closet staples. This product works on Leather, Suede and even Fabric!
There is nothing worse than busting out a new pair of shoes and you are SO EXCITED to rock them all day just to find out that by 10am, you are suffering from some major blisters! I absolutely hate breaking in shoes. In fact, when I read reviews and it says “after you break them in, they’re great”…. Yeah, no thanks, I’ll pass. I work hard for my money and therefor want the products I buy to work hard for me! So in the event that those shoes you-just-had-to-have and refuse to take back because they are just too pretty, end up giving you the dreaded blister (or 5), have no fear because the Solemates Blister Blocker is here! The Blister Blocker Anti-Friction Balm creates an invisible barrier to help prevent blisters. It glides on smoothly to bare feet without leaving any greasy residue. It’s amazing for breaking in new shoes or for preparing your feet for those particularly long days.
Thank you so much to Solemates for not only sponsoring this post, but for creating such wonderful products that keep our feet and footwear happy and healthy! All opinions are my own.
