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.
