Over the summer I bought two pairs of shoes for fall. Both pairs fit well in the store. Both pairs were on clearance. Both pairs were a final sale.
|Ready to ramble!|
It's finally cooled off enough to think about anything other than sandals and flip flops, so I was excited to start wearing my new shoes. The first time I put on the tan pair they fit like a glove, and took me throughout my busy day with no issues. However, I wasn't so lucky with the grey ones. Even though they were comfortable in the store, in my closet the shoe's tapered toe boxes didn't leave my toes any room to wiggle. Not good!
I tried walked around the house a couple of times while wearing the shoes, then gave up and changed into tennis shoes. I'm not giving up on them yet, though. Hopefully after a little breaking in they'll be as comfortable as their closet mates.

Maybe you can stretch them with a shoe stretcher.ReplyDelete
I don't have one, but there are a lot of tips on the Internet I'm going to try.Delete
Try an old-fashioned shoe stretcher … that is if they still sell those. Mine is eons old, so I don't know.ReplyDelete
Don't have one...but investigating other options.Delete
Must be uncomfortable if they fit like a glove !!!ReplyDelete
i am wearing socks and clogs for the first time in months.ReplyDelete
I keep my athletic socks (which I use on a regular basis in the summer) in a different drawer. It always feels strange to look at the 'regular' socks after the weather cools off.Delete
I find, that after the summer of bare feet, my foot expands. I have to slowly retrain my feet back into closed-toe shoes.ReplyDelete
Hmmm...I wonder if that's what happened to me. I never thought about it!Delete
The shoe stretcher sounds like a good idea. I could use one too.ReplyDelete
