Hello, I need help from those who own a pair of the Western Leather Ballerina Flats. I got a pair of those in gold about 2 weeks ago http://forum.purseblog.com/dior/my-1st-post-dior-forum-i-love-my-94354.html, wore them a couple of times, but the elastic is hurting my feet after a long day (mainly the heel and the elastic right above the bone of my big toe)!! I normally wear a size 7, but since the shoes run a little smaller I got a 7.5. I took them to a shoe repair shop to get stretched last Friday, but when I got them back on Sat there wasn't much different so I took them back to the shoe repair store today and have them stretch it more....the guy there said they cannot stretch the elastic, only the leather, to make the toe area a little bit wider and make the shoe itself longer, so hopefully it would help...... So those who own this pair, do you have the same problem with the elastic? Does the elastic hurt coz it's too tight? What do you do to loosen the elastic?? I am so pissed coz I cannot return the shoes anymore (I have wore them a couple of times already, and past the 10 day return period). The shoes look really cute, but I need to do something to make them more comfortable. They felt ok when I tried them at the boutique, but wonder if that's b/c I tried them earlier in the day so my feet were not at their biggest size....and they aren't cheap so I don't want to just leave them in the box coz they hurt my feet.... Help!!
