We tell you the shoe problems and their remedies

Problem: The shoe is giving your sore heels and blisters.
Remedy: Take a roll-on deodorant and rub it on your heels, and say bye-bye to blisters.
Problem: The new flat shoes feel very tight.
Remedy: Put on some thick socks and wear your shoes. Now take a hair-dryer and blow dry the areas that feel tight.
Problem: The lovely white suede shoe that is your favourite has got some scuffs.
Remedy: Take an eraser and rub it over the scratches and voila there are no marks left on them.
Problem: The elegant white soles of your sports shoes has dulled and darkened with time.
