Have you tried inserts?  I find that when my shoes are like half a size too big that some times the inserts can help – both the ones that are for the back of the shoes and for the whole foot.  I think I got mine at Walmart or the grocery store.

-Good luck!

Have you tried them with insoles? How large is that gap? (We don’t do half sizes in the UK normally so I don’t know much how it usually is!) You can get these gel pads to put on the inside of the heel of the shoe so that it doesn’t rub against your heel and cause blisters – this might help!

i actually often buy pumps a half size big so i can put a cushion/gel insert in them! i’m not usually a heel wearer so it makes it way more comfortable. your foot won’t go quite as far forward in them so it will eliminate the gap at the back….so your feet will look AND feel good. you can inserts at most any shoe store or even CVS carries a few options.

I have used the Dr. Scholls inserts you put in the heel of the shoe for this very problem. They worked great but after one time they kinda lost their stickiness so i would buy 2 pairs in case half way thru the reception you need to change one out. You might want to buy one for the ball of your feet also depending on how loose it is.
