Some googling reveals a product named “sling stay” shoe strap holders…but honestly? I’d go with some double-sided tape cut to fit!

No help from this corner on what to do about shoes cutting into your toes; is it truly too late to find shoes that are comfier?  Sounds like a sizing problem :-/  Good luck!

Are the shoes leather or fabric? Fabric will not stretch much (if any), leather you can have stretched by a cobbler. I like the double-sided tape suggestion

For my bridal shower I wore shoes the strap fell down in, and I bought strappies. (I got them at DSW) and they work awesome! Also try to stretch your shoes you can buy shoe stretchers and they work awesome.

I like to use Dr. Scholls moleskin in shoes that dig in or rub painfully to prevent blisters and cuts.  I cut a piece out (you can buy a whole roll of the stuff) and then either stick in in my shoe if the shoe allows for that or stick it to my foot where I need it.  Not sure about the strap fix though.

I agree with the moleskin for the part cutting into your foot.

It’s a miracle product.

Okay, one question, did you break in the shoes prior to this? That could be the issues with it cutting in but most shoe stores have this little foot thing that they can put inside the toe and crank it open and it will push the material out. It will act as a quickie break in. Also mole skin is awesome!

I buy these things called strappies at DSW and they make my shoe straps stay up awesome! They are like $6 for a pack of 4 they also help with blisters.

I agree with moleskin and recently saw an ad for a deodorant-like product from Band-Aid that creates a protective layer where your shoe rubs. Haven’t tried it myself, but it looks fabulous – I would guess that it would either be in the band-aid aisle or with the the other shoe/foot stuff.
