They Arrived


It's my birthday this Sunday - and by coincidence, my shoes from here, arrived today.

For the first time in my life, I am wishing my feet were a little bigger, because the shoes are a little too big for me.

Oh poop.

Any ideas to make these babies fit me better?

Happy Birthday!!!

I'm wearing crocs that I have yet to see on another person over the age of 5 so I got nothing for you except a compliment - cool kicks!

I meant to say I haven't seen the color on anyone over 5.

Too much explaining, joke lost.
Your shoes are still cool though!

whoo-hoo! They're great!

Okay, being the possessor of ridiculously small feet, I'm always trying to fit into shoes that are too big for me. So my tips:
- They'll fit you better in Summer, feet and fingers tend to shrink in cold weather.
- Buy some of those innersoles, just the cheap foam ones will do. Sometimes I've used 2 in each shoe, they work really well for ballet flats. You don't need to wedge anything into the toe area or anything, just put them along the bottom of the shoe like you normally would. Something about the extra height wedges your feet against the top of the shoe and the extra length doesn't matter anymore.

Hope that helps.

Happy Birthday for tomorrow!!!!! Hope you have a great day. :D

I use inner soles too, to make loose shoes fit better :) I just get them from the supermarket.. not romantic, I know.

Al, these shoes are hot! Just do something, anything, to be able to wear them. I'm thinking tissue paper,I'm thinking explorer socks, I'm thinking foot extensions. These shoes are to good not to wear damn it!

Happy Birthday to you!!

Great shoes you've got there, I'd try some inner soles. If they're only a little bit too big, they may do the trick...
