Even the nicest new boots can seem like a drag if your foot is sliding around or out of them with every step you take. Find simple solutions to this annoying problem in your own home, at the shoe or drug store or from your local cobbler.
Boots that are so roomy in the foot area that your feet slide around can cause discomfort -- and cramp your style. Fill in the space between your foot and your boot with adhesive inserts, such as insoles or heel grips. Purchase them at shoe shops or drug stores. Look for inserts made of sponge rubber, neoprene or vinyl, because the gel types can wear down quickly. In a pinch, stuff your boots with newspaper, cotton or even paper towels until you can get to the store for inserts.
Those thick, comfy socks that keep your feet warm may also be the solution for boots that feel too roomy. They fill in the extra space at the toe, heel or sides of your foot. Tall, thick socks can take up the space between a wide boot shaft and thin calves. Pull on a decorative over-the-knee version if you're wearing tall boots. For a more permanent fix, take your boots to a cobbler, who can taper the shaft of your boots.
