Breaking in Birthday Shoes

It was my birthday yesterday and I was pleased to get a new pair of shoes. I set off for work wearing them with pride, admiring them with each stride… but 20mins later I had arrived at the station and they were really rubbing the backs of my heels. By the time I got into work I was hobbling around. I thought next time I wear a pair of new shoes on a long journey I’ll bring a back up comfy pair to change into just in case (1st strategy). A colleague said that she puts on five pairs of socks, then her new shoes, and then gives it a good dose of hot air from the hairdryer – apparently this breaks them in faster (2nd strategy). Anyone else got more tips here? #shoes
