Hi all, I bought some black patent heeled brogues from New Look a while ago as I love them, they didn't hurt in the shop, but once I wear them for more than half an hour or walk for more than 5 minutes they really pinch around the toes!
This is really strange for me, as I have size 4, ridiculously thin feet! They're only 2in high and the heels don't hurt, it's just around the toes
Just wondering is there any way to sort of 'stretch' them so they're not so painful? I tried 'squishing' them a bit and wandering around the house in them but it hasn't really made much difference..
I really wanna be able to wear these shoes

You're probably right I tried a 5 in the shop, but it was literally falling off me and I thought they'd stretch a bit once I'd worn them around the house..

If they're from New Look, then I doubt they're leather. So they're unlikely to stretch or give, I'm afraid!!

Can't you stuff them (with paper, tissue, etc) and leave them for a week?

Hmm I disagree. Whenever I've had my feet measured (from cheap shops, to clarks, good high street ones, wherever) they always measure me at say a 4, when I actually need a 6 :dontknow:


Can you take them back and get a similar pair?

I stretch my shoes with a potato!! weird I know but it works....just wrap it in clip film to avoid and potato bits in your shoes.

p.s they are really nice by the way and you dont need a fitter to get the right shoes!

You should have paid £5 more and bought the ones that were very similar, only in leather. I have those and they are fine. You can't really expect New Look shoes to be comfortable though, they're cheap and nasty!

Mine are very comfortable as New Look shoes go. Girls, you should have gone for the leather ones!

Are they the pointy ones? I was thinking about those, but I think they make my feet look big
I disagree, New Look shoes are usually really comfy for me.. however I don't really wear heels unless i'm going out.. lol

:eek: Thank you! I know someone at college who has them and they don't seem to have this problem :rolleyes:
It's such a shame as I adore them! I've taken to wearing flats to walk to college in then swapping when I get inside

Wear them with thick socks when you are around the house. It really does help!
