Girls who work and/or live in NYC...

How do you take care of your feet?! My feet have been destroyed since working in the city. I have blisters and calluses all over and they're so dry.

I pumice and put foot cream on almost daily.

I'm I the only one?? What do you guys do to keep your feet unscathed by the city streets??

Weekly Pedicures, plus daily scrubbing in the shower with a pumice and nightly sanding with a foot file and loads of lotion. I hate dry skin on my feet.

yeah-- my feet take a beating... I am able to wear flip flops or comfy shoes in the summer-- I just try to wear comfortable, yet stylish shoes-- which is not always easy. I also get pedis all the time to scrape those suckers!

I hate how your feet turn black (bottoms mainly) when walking with flips in the city. I don't miss that...

well I don't wear flip flops in the city bc I don't even want to know what would wind up on my feet. I wear sneakers to and from and keep my shoes at work.

I don't wear flip flops to work - they really damage my feet. This Summer I have continued to wear sneakers and socks and my feet are in pretty good shape!

pumice your feet in the shower at night... then lather on a TON of lotion and immediately put socks on! sleep with the socks/lotion on... and your feet should be much smoother in the morning!

The only flip flops I wear are Crocs. Also, I pumice daily and use Baby Oil Gel to moisturize.

This is what I do...I wear my converse everyday. I used to wear flip flops and then all the sudden one day I thought about what could be coming in contact with my feet, and that was the end of that!

My feet are destroyed from working in NYC for years. I finally joined the nerd club and wore my sneakers or flip flops when commuting. I always kept a pair of sneakers at my desk in case of an emergency.

I use that block that the ladies use at the nail salon with a good foot scrub and scrub away every other day. It has definitely helped me not to use the razor anymore.

I use the Goldbond in the blue bottle at night.

I wear flip flops to and from work and change into regular shoes at work.
