I bought my shoes right before my last fitting and my toes went numb while the seamstress was marking the hem.  I’ve since worn them around the house with socks and, little by little, they’ve stretched out.  I wore them to my dance lesson last week and had no problems.  As long as the length is good, you can stretch out the toe box.  If they are too short and its pushing your toes into the pointed end, you’ll probably need to get new shoes.

@BooRadley:  +1 on her idea with wearing socksaround the house. wear them everyday so they get stretched out. they make many items that will help u stretch them. you could do a google search.

Dending on what they are made of, you can put on thick socks and stuff your feet in them.  Then, use your hair dryer to heat up the toe box and they will slowly stretch out.  I have done this before many times and it works.  Good luck!

+1 on all the above ideas.  Another idea would be to get inserts in your shoes that will help your foot from pushing down into the shoe.

+1 on the socks and wearing around the house.  I slowly started doing everyday chores in mine.  Worked like a charm.

You can also fill a plastic bag with water, stuff it in the toe, and put the whole shebang in the freezer. The water expands as it freezes so this should stretch the material. Works best on leather.

I’ve used that Stretch Genie stuff on TV, found it on ebay, it actually works too.
