I had to kill some time yesterday while waiting for David. My intention was go to to the library and read my book, but I decided to pop into a shoe store along the way. I fell in love with a pair of heels. They're cream faux leather, and the tip of the toe and heel shaft are shiny black faux patent leather. There's also a little shiny black bow, which I'd really love to be able to hate but instead there's just love.
I swear, when I tried them on in the store, despite what size they were labeled, they felt like just the right size. I walked around for five minutes and they were fine. I didn't try a half size down just in case like I normally would because they didn't have a half size down. But they were comfortable and fit just right. They didn't pinch, slide, or rub badly. I wore them around the house a little last night and they were still just fine.
Somehow, overnight, my feet either shrunk half a size or the shoes grew half a size, because now the shoes are too big. I discovered this on the way to work, when my heels kept slipping out of the shoes. I don't know if I can exchange them now that they've been worn outside (I have backup shoes at work, so I can avoid any further signs of wear), and I don't know if I'll be able to find the right size anyhow. I typically have the opposite problem, with shoes being about a quarter size too small, so I'm not sure what, if anything, can be done.
I already have some Dr Scholl's comfort insoles for high heels in them. Would a thicker insole help? Is there something comfortable I can stuff the toe with? Should I just scrub the soles clean and return them?
