    All those shoes are gorgeous.

     My personal opinion is to buy another shoe. And return the ones you have already purchased.

    If you cut the heel too much the base of the foot will not be in the right position and it will be most uncomfortable for your feet.


    HOpe it all works out.

    Shoes are built to be balanced a certain way; cutting the heel could mess up the structure of the whole shoe and make it uncomfortable or completely useless for walking.

    usually the most a shoe shop can cut the heel down is about 1/4 to maybe a 1/2 inch. theres no way they can do more than that, let alone 2 inches. its just not possible! sorry girl! i went through this problem when i was at the bridal salon and i fell in love with a shoe that was 4 inches but i still wasnt sure if that was the right height. they told me that anymore than a 1/2 inch would completely mess up the structure of the shoe and i wouldnt even be able to walk in them.

    would a 1/4 inch make a difference. if yes, then go for it but if not then you may have to buy another pair. is there anyway they can lengthen your gown?

    maybe you can get another pair but wear these ones to your rehearsal dinner with a short dress or to other wedding functions so you can still get some use out of them.
