Welcome to Reddit, the front page of the internet. Protected my heels and the shoes were broken in two days. Buying shoes that are a half-size bigger — but not any wider — won't necessarily solve the problem. Like a business casual Witch shoe.
Pro-tip- get some blister bandages, ideally you would put them on before any rubbing would get worse and blister. I was just going to say such a perfect thing to where to work where you need to look professional but still want to be Cool and Goth. Buy some hydrocolloid bandages.
Great cushion to prevent and cover existing blisters. Most pharmacies I went in to there carried them. Wore some with some new ked's like tennis shoes to a concert. Protected my heels and the shoes were broken in two days. I love those shoes, but wearing all those pointy ankle boots and pointy pumps in the eighties have messed up my feet.
Remember to massage and stretch your toes and the balls of your feet frequently! I have bunions on both big toe joints connecting to the feet. You don't want to hobble around in your 40ss!
You might be able to get the shoes stretched by a shoe repair shop. I wish our exchange was that good. Europe was so rough on my bank account. But so, so worth it. Wearing small and short socks inside, which you can't see: If they'd be bigger, I'd slip out with every step, which normally is my problem with shoes like this.
Many shoes hurt in the beginning, expecially leather shoes, but after a time it gets better. Wouldn't want to miss my doc martens ever, which were hell in the beginning.
Video submissions are not allowed. Press gently on the top of the shoe to make sure you have about a half-inch of space between your longest toe and the end of the shoe. This provides enough room for your foot to press forward as you walk.
Wiggle your toes to make sure there's enough room. Walk around in the shoes to determine how they feel. Is there enough room at the balls of the feet? Do the heels fit snugly, or do they pinch or slip off?
Don't rationalize that the shoes just need to be "broken in. Trust your own comfort level rather than a shoe's size or description. Sizes vary between manufacturers. And no matter how comfortable an advertisement claims those shoes are, you're the real judge. Pay attention to width as well as length. If the ball of your foot feels compressed in a particular shoe, ask if it comes in a wider size.
Buying shoes that are a half-size bigger — but not any wider — won't necessarily solve the problem. Feel the inside of the shoes to see if they have any tags, seams, or other material that might irritate your foot. Are they sturdy enough to provide protection from sharp objects?
