OK, so we all know how frustrating it is to have small feet. Before Pretty-Small-Shoes, you can’t find petite-shoes to fit, you are limited to childrens ballet flats or you annually buy packs of insoles to last you only one year. Now, imagine the extra annoyance when you realise your feet are too wide for some styles. The thing is, there is always a solution to this – especially at Pretty-Small-Shoes.
So you’ve ordered shoes correct for the length of your feet. They arrive, but your feet seem too wide. Here are some steps/tips on what to do.
1. Double check you’ve measured your feet correctly
2. Take note of the width and length of both feet as they may differ (you will need this info for the next step)
3. Send a lovely email to Pretty-Small-Shoes customer service team (firstname.lastname@example.org) and let them know your measurements and how the shoe doesn’t fit
INTERESTING FACTS and NOTES (I’ve picked up along the way…)
- If you are still new to wearing petite-sized shoes and it feels too tight, it may mean your feet are not used to shoes that actually fit.
- Try taking them to a shoe repairman and they can try stretching the leather at the front
- Someone once told me to leave them in the car boot for a few hours so they can warm up and stretch
- Put water in a sandwich bag and place them into the front of the shoes, and leave the shoes (with the water bags in) inside the freezer. The water will freeze and stretch the leather
- The lower the heel- or less steep, the less pressure on your toes. When you’re a avid high-heel wearer (like me!), your feet get used to the pressure and will feel comfortable
- Open-toe shoes provide more give in room for your toes
Anyways, I hope this helps and I will let you know my favourite picks suitable for wider feet in my next post.
