My Gucci slingbacks' sling is slightly too loose

  1. Is there an easy way to fix this yourself? I thought of perhaps cutting one of those heel-inserts and sticking a thin strip onto the back of the slingback?

    Any other advice?

    Thanks!
     
  2. I believe some cobblers can shorten them
     
  3. Either shorten them like Mooks said or add a half insert to the toe area of the shoe. It actually helps to push your feet back so the sling fits nicely. I always have this problem with sling backs too! (skinny feet)
     
  4. ^ Not a bad idea, although I prefer to take ill-fitting shoes to my cobbler. I'm not a fan of inserts or pads because they get kind of grimey sometimes or bunch up.
