I've read posts here saying you can and you can't stretch patent shoes, so just to get it straight, can you stretch it or not? I got a pair of patent Cole Haan pumps and I love how comfy they are for a 3 inch shoe but the toe box area literally cuts the blood circulation that my feet come out looking white after I wear them( and I have no idea why I didn't notice this while I was in their store). I can't return them coz I already wore them outside, so does anyone have any suggestions? They are my right shoe size, I guess my feet are wide? Which is weird coz I never thought so before. Anyway, suggestions please. TIA!
