Now that fall is here, that means our sandals are taking a backseat to booties.  So much for showing off our pedis (but yay to cool-looking shoes).   Unfortunately, taking care of our feet in the fall goes by the wayside.  They’re smothered in booties, socks and tights and soon, we’re crinkling our noses:  Sweat.  Odor.  Heels rough enough to file […]
