so i just got my first brand new manolos this weekend. previously i only had pre-owned ones from eBay. i know from the pre-owned ones that i'm a 40. i bought 2 pairs of the same shoes (see the manolo thread) in 2 diff heel heights. i got them yesterday and somehow i got a 40.5 on the shorter heels. i tried them both on this morning and they both felt ok. but should i return the 40.5 for a 40? i have peds i can put in them in case they stretch but i just don't know what to do. they actually felt better than the 40s- which for some reason felt a little tight- but then again they're brand new and leather so they should stretch. wwyd? also- i got a pair of chanel flats. the SA at BG put a ped in the shoe- i guess to show me what they're like. but i don't need it. so i went to take it out and i think they bottom was sticky and now i'm worried i'm going to take it out and ruin the inside of the shoe.... is there a good way to remove it or just like a bandaid rip it out or bring it in to exchange it? eek. i have so many questions. thanks!
