How to protect your feet for a party night out

How to protect your feet for a party night out

The holiday season is here, and that means one thing - Christmas parties! It's the time to light the long-nights with sparkles and fairy lights in jumpers. And for those who love to dance the evening away, it’s time to lace up your boots. However, as glamorous as we want to look, our smart shoes, high heels and even sneakers can get in our way.

Let's unwrap the secrets to a comfortable night out — from pre-party preparations to after-party pampering.

Preparations for a smooth start

You want to start off being prepared for rubbing and blisters if you want to last all night and feel less ache in the morning. Here’s our tips on what you can do to protect your feet before you even leave the house.

  • Choose the right pair of shoes. Sure they can be stylish but also comfortable. Opt for shoes with cushioned insoles and proper arch support. If you've got a new pair, break them in before the big night.
  • If you haven’t worn heels in a while, practice walking around your home to get comfortable. Trust us. It's better to stumble in the privacy of your living room than on the dance floor.
  • Wear Scholl Blister Plasters. Protects against painful rubbing by applying blister plasters on skin prone to friction, like the back of your heel or the sides of your toes.

Dance the night away in comfort

Yes, it can be done. You’ve just got to be clever about it. Let’s face it, heels, pointy shoes, platforms, dress shoes – they aren’t designed for long-wears. So let’s not be ashamed of carrying back-up old reliable flats with us to the knees-up.

You can make your feet-house a feet-home with Scholl Party Feet Gel Cushions. From the ball of the foot to the back of the heel, Party Feet Gel Cushions & Shields offer comfort and protection all day long. Place your ball of foot cushions on your shoes right under the ball of your foot, they help to prevent burning pain. While the Heel Cushions help protect your heel against pressure so you can keep dancing through the night!

Pamper and rejuvenate after the party

The final leg of your feet-first party journey is here. You may have woken up and your feet just aren’t sitting right. You need to do your post-party all night pampering.

Post-Party Soak

Once you're home, soak your feet in warm water with relaxing salts to soothe any aches and pains. It's a great way to unwind.

Foot Massage

Treat your feet to a gentle massage using Scholl Dry Skin Foot Cream. Or better yet try one of our enriching ExpertCare Dry Skin Foot Masks to keep your heels hydrated and massage in the oils. Massaging your arches and calves can help ease any tension and improve circulation.


Gently stretch your calf muscles and roll your feet over a tennis ball or a frozen water bottle to alleviate any lingering discomfort.

If your outfit includes those glamorous high heels, you're in for a dazzling night. However, to ensure your feet stay merry and bright throughout the festivities, it's crucial to know how to protect them. By following these tips before, during, and after your Christmas party night out, you'll be better equipped to protect your precious feet from the pains of high heels and dancing. So, go ahead and put on those sparkly stilettos, dazzle on the dance floor, and celebrate the holiday season in style, all while keeping your feet merry and bright!
