Happy Feet: How to Take Care of Our Feet in the Fall

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 our fingernails on.


As the commercials say, “but wait, there’s more.”  After a season of ignoring our feet, we make ourselves crazy come flip-flop wearing time.  It’s a mad rush to get our feet in shape.  Ladies, it’s time to stop the madness!

Here’s how to take care of feet in the fall.  Step out in fabulous fall shoes while giving feet some TLC.
