My splurge item for the wedding was a pair of beautiful teal Badgley Mischka peep-toe shoes. While researching, tons of sites suggested ordering them a half size larger. I also had a set of gel comfort strips that goes on the inside back of the shoe so your heel doesn’t get all blistered. So when I finally got the shoes, they were a bit too big, but I thought that adding the strips helped.
Apparently not. I’ve been breaking them in, and I’ve noticed when I wear them for a bit they slip off.
How can I fix this? It’s been long enough since I got the shoes that I can’t replace them (stupid me.) I’ve thought of adding a strap, but most options are simply tying a ribbon around the shoe and your ankle. Not a huge fan of that look.

have you tried the other cushions for your shoes? Like the one you can put on top of the front toe part? Check out your local target’s shoe section. they have all kindsof cushions that can help make the shoe fit better

Oh no! And it sucks you splurged on gorgeous shoes. Have you thought about Foot Petals? You can order them off Amazon (I got a 3-pack for 20 bucks). I have shoes about 1/2 inch too big with peep toes as well, and the foot petals made them tighter, so much so that I had to loosen the strap. I got the “killer kushions,” which are full-length shoe cushions.

@erclay: A full length insole might lift your foot up enough to help the heel stay in place.

@erclay: so sorry to hear this happened to you – the SAME EXACT thing happened to me!
the little cuhions did nothing unfortunately, but depending on what style shoe you have the insoles might.
i have the salsa, and can’t put in an insole because you would be able to see it in the middle where the shoe doesn’t cover the foot. 🙁
let me know if you figure anything out!

@LilDrAnya: Mine look almost exactly like that. What I ended up doing was buying another pair of those heel cushions, and I cut them to fit into the sides by my toes. Those really helped. I haven’t had them on for too long, but they seem to do the trick. I would try doing that. And if it doesn’t work, you can just pull them out without any damage.
Thanks for all your help, ladies!
