Hey all my beautiful ladies & gents! I got resourceful this past week with stretching my joli noeud slides since I'm wearing them tonight for a bridal/bachelorette party and wanted to share it with you. This could've been done already and I haven't read about it so if it has, pardon my unoriginality.
I balled up thick socks and stuffed them (and I mean stuffed) under the toe box. There was no ROOM for error (pun intended). I left them in for 3 days, tried them on last night and voila! They fit like a dream!!
Pros: It was free, a balled up sock represented my swollen feet by the end of the night and now my joli's fit like they were sewn around my foot.
I hear if you soak the sock in alcohol it works as well.
It does. I've tried this. I do have to advise to be careful b/c the color seems to bleed a bit if you accidently get it on the piping part of the shoe. It doesn't hurt the look when they're on your feet but some of my blacks have bled just a tad. Nothing I can't deal with but I thought I'd put it out there.
