You could try those half pads that can be placed in the toe box, sometimes that can make a shoe fit a half size smaller. Not sure if they'd show with peeptoes though, you'd just have to try it. That's so odd you went down a half size, I've only heard of people going up sizes. Did your feet used to be really swollen or something? If that's the case you may go back to that 8 again.

You can take it to a cobbler and ask to put an insole inside of you shoes. They usually lift up the thin leather inside of the shoe (front part) and put a soft layer inside and then glue the leather back. I don't know if I made myself clear, but I hope it helps.

I have the same issue too. May I know if it's the same as putting a full soft insole inside the shoes? I've tried to put one in, but then the shoes still a bit too "long" and is become too "tight" with the insole. Hope u understand what I meant. Any idea how to fix it?

Thanks. :smile:

dont use half insole in your case, just try the leather heel grip :smile: so instead of making your front too tight , it fills up the gap that you have at the back of your feet

p.s i just read you put full insole? try with the half insole first if its still too tight try the leather heel grip as ive suggested above

Thanks for your suggestion. I try half insole and also the leather heel grip. But when I walk, it still comes off very easily. :wacko: I purchased 2 pairs in different colors and they are both a half size too big. It was an impulse purchase.
