Straps on Your Sandals Too Loose? Try This Free & Easy Fix!

Sometimes the straps on sandals just don’t have enough holes in them to be snug enough on our heel. Walking is uncomfortable and we fear losing a shoe. No worries! And no need to run to the cobbler! 

  • Simply lay the strap flat on a surface you don’t mind scuffing (like a piece of wood) and mark the next notch up from the last hole with a small pen mark. 
  • Hammer a nail into the strap, making a hole. If the hole from the nail isn’t big enough, work it open a little more with the tine of a fork. 

You’re finished! You can walk with confidence and your sandal won’t pop off like Cinderella’s.
