First off, I LOVE these shoes. Period.
The first time I ordered them, they were comfortable enough, but too big. My feet wouldn’t stay in them when I walked. Well, I ordered a size smaller, which arrived today, and they seem to fit better and stay on better, but they squeeze my toes and it hurts. Will wearing them around the house for a while make this better? Any tips are appreciated. I don’t have “wide” feet, so I don’t think that’s the issue. Maybe it’s just because I never wear heels? I’m definitely a tennis shoes type of girl.

I would go with the larger shoe and add heel grips (the best are at payless and cost $2), that will prevent your heel from popping out. You can also buy foot pad cushion for the ball of your foot, this will cushion every step and push your heel up also preventing your heel popping out of the shoe. You will be on your feet all day and your feet will be more comfortable in The larger shoe.

Willow90: as they’re not leather, it’s unlikely they will stretch/give with wear. You could do as a PP suggested and get in soles or heel grips but honestly, I would probably return them and look elsewhere as fit is so important for comfort; this is why I try to go for makes that offer half-sizes.

Oh noooo. I returned my bigger shoes and ordered the smaller shoes. Bahh! There is still time left, though. I will look into the heel grips. Thanks so much for the suggestions!
This brand does offer half sizes, but I went down a full size because there was such a large gap when I put them on. Maybe I’ll try the half size, and then the heel grips if I need them? Macy’s is probably rolling thier eyes at me by now…haha. We don’t have a Macy’s anywhere nearby, so I’ve been doing this all through mail…kind of exhausting!

Willow90: if they do half-sizes and the ones you have are too tight, try the half-size. It might be worth ordering them before you return your current pair so that you can compare. If they were leather I would probably keep the smaller ones, as leather does give, but they’re satin so as I said it’s unlikely they will.
Hope you find a good fit!

Yeah.. I agree with barbie86. Some companies have half sizes as well. If you get that, nothing is going to be better than this..

If you never wear heels, your wedding isn’t exactly the best day to wear heels. You’ll be on your feet all day. My advice would be to look for a fun flat or lower, wider heel. You will be more comfortable by a mile, and a lot more graceful and confident to walk in them.

I’ve always found that wearing shoes around the house helps break them in, no matter what kind of cloth. However, if you don’t like wearing heals I wouldn’t wear them for your wedding. Maybe you can wear them for pictures and then put on a pair of flats for everything else?

department stores can stretch your shoes for you so maybe try to look into that? I had the toe area of my wedding shoes stretched wider and they were so comfortable! I had no idea until that purchase that anyone even offered that option. So far I’ve had it done at Nordstroms and The Bay (Canadian department store) so not sure which ones do it but worth asking!

In my experience heal grips don’t work! They move around and come off and get everything stickY!
Maybe. Try to find a comfier pair or get them stretched (I’ve never gotten around to getting this done, but have a few pairs I’m considering it for)
goodluck, hopefully you can sort something out, but do consider packing flats too just in case 🙂
