So, I ordered the most amazing pair of hot pink satin peep toes for my wedding. However, when I went for my dress fitting and tried them on for a while, I realized they killed my feet! They’re mostly too tight in the toe/ball of my feet area. Does anyone have any suggestions for how to get them stretched out so I don’t want to chop my feet off before I even walk down the aisle? I’m sure I can take them somewhere and have them done, but I’m lazy and it’ll probably cost an arm and a leg.
Rub rubbing alcohol on the inside of the shoe at the spots that need stretching. Then put on the thickest socks you have (or multiple pairs) and wear the shoes. Walk around a lot, and they should stretch out.
Thanks for your input ladies! I’ve decided to go the professional (lazy) route and take them in to a shoe repair shop. I found one that will do them for $7. Can’t beat that! Keep your fingers crossed that they turn out all right!
I ended up taking them to have them professionally done. I think it worked. I haven’t worn them long enough to really tell. I think I”m going to get some foot petals too just to be sure they’re as comfy as possible.
