MY PICK OF THE DAY..(THE THONG SANDAL)

Hey guys
From now onward am going to be talking extensively on each pick of the day shoe i post,giving insights to as to whether its suitable for your leg type,how to rock and most especially how to care for them.
Thong sandals are the staple items that are here to stay,it a'int going nowhere. Above is Alessandra Ambrosio making a quick stop for some grocery items..she is seen rocking the thong sandals which suits her legs perfectly.
Now here i start......if you guys have been following my posts,in the early stage of my blogging,i admitted to the fact that i don't wear all kinds of shoes e.g sandals..just because i love shoes. I make sure i am comfortable with whatever i wear. Before i wear any shoe,i always consider the fittings first before anything...simply put..."will the shoe fit my feet"?..

The thong sandals are just like our normal flip flops or bathroom slippers but the difference is just the strap that goes round the ankle which you can either tie round,buckle up or pin in. Not all sandals are meant for all kinds of feet..ladies am gonna say it straight up,if you've got a big feet my dears single strapped thong is so not for you..you can image wearing a sandals that your whole feet will cover and still be touching the floor..its crazy cos it's not right.you can't be walking on the road and still feel the sides of your feet touching the ground.. Sandals are meant for comfortable and are also safe haven when you trying to ditch the heels for a while therefore it shouldn't be turned into a fashion faux.
Thongs are fashionable piece of items which can be paired with any outfit of your choice if styled well..e.g *gowns(mini,midi or maxi), shorts,trousers,leggings,skirts(flared,pleated.straight).

We all have different size of feet therefore not everything that fits Mr A will fit Mr B...i would prefer for those with bigger feet,go for more strappy detailed sandals which will give the illusion of a slimmer feet..
Am sorry for giving you guys this long sermon,all i wanna do is to share my own little knowledge about the rules of shoes so we could have happy feet breathing around.

Disadvantages of the thong sandals.

*Thong-style sandals may look cute and beautiful but that strap between your toes could be a very big source of discomfort which include agonizing blisters if you're not careful. Blisters tend to pop up because of the friction between the strap and your unprotected skin. all you have to do is to guard your soles against this irritation, and you'll stay blister-free all season long.
*Another disadvantage of the thong is having to deal with your feet slide from side to side. There is nothing worse than having to be conscious of your stepping cos your feet is half in and half out of the sandals.

Remedy

*Thongs comes in different material therefore to avoid your feet slipping out or the sandals causing blisters in-between your toes, i strongly recommend you go for cloth material that go between the toes, rather than leather or plastic or rubber.
*Apply an anti-blister gel to your feet before putting on the sandals. The gel reduces rubbing and chafing, so blisters are much less likely to develop. Wear the gel between your toes or on any other blister-prone area.
*Coat the sandal strap and other irritating parts with an anti-friction solution. The solution forms a protective barrier between skin and the sandal. Petroleum jelly also works to delay irritation, but it's not effective as a long-term solution.

Advantages of the thong sandals.
*you can achieve both a casual and dressy look with thong sandals.
*they are recess shoes for heely shoes
*you can wear them anywhere and at anytime

How to care for them
caring for them is very simple..all you have to do is either you gently wash and dry or simple use a dry cloth and wipe the surface.

NB: *When wearing any kind of sandals,make sure your feet are clean and well scrubbed..there should not be harmattan signals and directions underneath your feet simply put..there should be no tear tear or cut cut underneath your feet...its a very big eye sore..
*Make sure your toes are well groomed
