Get heal inserts, little foam stickies that you stick on the inside of the heal.

Stuff something soft into the toebox of each shoe.  (Tissue, a hankie, cotton, etc.)  It will have to be just the right amount so that the room that is left in each shoe is just the right amount of room for your feet.  And… it has to be something soft so it doesn’t hurt, irritate your toes.

Adding a foam insole raises your foot up and back in the shoe. You can even add a foot petal on top of the insole and silicone heel grips if necessary.

@LittleRiver:  I use those and heelgrips from CVS (best ones I’ve found). My left foot is smaller than my right and I have super narrow heels so I tend to come out of a lot of pumps and that fixes it.

Insoles and those heel-petal stickies help. If anything, you can get lambswool to stuff in the toebox area. When I used to dance en pointe; that’s what we’d put in the tips of our pointe shoes to help cushion our feet when we danced.
