After a night out in high heels it happens quite often that once I reach home my feet are hurting and some blisters are saying hello. Especially when wearing new shoes this is a reoccurring, somehow regular problem. As I know what will happen beforehand though, I usually prepare a few things in advance:
Don’t wear your brand new shoes for a whole night out for the first time! Try to wear them only for a little while every day the week before so that your shoes can accustom to your feet and so that your feet get used to the shape of the shoe.
Try feet deodorant or baby powder to keep your feet dry. Blisters are more likely to occur when having warm and moist feet.
If you noticed specific areas in your shoe that don’t seem to soften up try applying some thin blister cushions. It is a like a thin padded sticker that makes it more comfortable to wear the shoe. This works quite well for me. Or try to bend and therefore soften the leather with your hands. This works better when the leather is a bit damp. You could even wear your shoes at home with damp socks for a while. Let the shoes dry overnight. They should fit perfectly now.
If there are still some areas that hurt, try rubbing a candle on the area that keep hurting you in the shoe! This may sound it a bit strange but this makes that area smoother. Vaseline might work as well but I am always going for the candle, as it is somehow dryer.
If all this still doesn’t work and you got blisters anyway, throw your shoes away and buy better ones! J
