Ok, some of you may have seen my drama with my DIY dying of my shoes to blue.
They looks great now, but they don’t fit(!)
They really pinch the front of my foot. I can stand still ok with them, but walking down the aisle would be painful.
Honestly, I swear they fit when I bought them (about six months ago).
I haven’t gotten pregnant or had a weight change since then (although I have been doing tons of yoga, don’t know if that does anything).
Can dyeable shoes stretch???
Can dying shoes make them shrink?? I did the bucket method (which was a FAIL) before soaking to remove the dye and painting them.

wear them around your house for a few days. you should be able to stretch them out on your own.

Wear them around your house but put socks on first that is what I do and it stretches teh shoe out. Hope this helps!

Wal-Mart or Target sells a shoe stretcher. It should be with the shoes. There is a spray that comes with them, I wouldn’t use that it may make the dye run.
Just adjust it to where it’s tight but not overly tight.
Hope it helps

You can actually go get them stretched if you need to or buy a shoe stretcher. There used to be a shoe repair place near me and I had my shoes stretched because they were too small. I would look into that if you can’t get them to stretch on your own. But try putting think socks on and wearing them around the house to stretch them.
Here’s one shoe stretcher: http://www.amazon.com/FootSmart-FitRight-Two-Way-Shoe-Stretcher/dp/B000KPMBWU
I’m sure you could find others too.
