You came to a shoe store and chose your shoes. The shoes are of high quality and look great on the foot. Unfortunately, it is a little too large, and the store does not have a smaller size for the model you like. Good leather shoes can get a little too big after extended wear. What to do in such a situation?
If you are just going to buy shoes, check out the product quality certificate. If the shoe stretches during the process of wearing, then in this case it is better to refuse to purchase, rather than periodically carry out measures to reduce it. In the event that you liked the model so much that you are not afraid of any difficulties, feel free to buy the shoes you like.
Some shoe stores sell silicone or gel inlays that can be purchased to help you adjust your shoe size. Place these inlays, respectively, in the toe or in the heel, inside the last. Try on the shoes again and make sure they are the right size for you. However, this option cannot be used with open shoes and sandals.
You can also use insoles made of hygienic materials (preferably latex), which will not allow the foot to dangle freely when walking. Latex insoles are great because they stick tightly to the inside of the sole and can be used for open shoes or sandals. Please note that it is not recommended to insert such insoles into winter shoes, as this can cause hypothermia of the foot.
If none of the suggested options suits you, contact a shoe shop, where they will fit your shoes to size. Sometimes a workshop can be found in the store where you purchased the shoes. Tell the shopkeeper exactly where you want (heel, toe, etc.) to reduce the size of the shoe. Some shoe shops have a master consultant to help you determine which side is best to shrink the shoe. With the help of pads or (more modern version) a special machine, the shoemaker will do the necessary work. Do not forget that if the length of the shoe can be adjusted to your size, then the fullness of the shoe cannot be changed.
When taking your shoes from the workshop, carefully examine them. The seams on the shoe should be as strong as when it was purchased, and the sole should not be deformed. If the workshop is directly related to the salon where you bought the shoes, then by agreement, you can arrange for repairs under the warranty card if the shoes were purchased less than 2 weeks ago.
