Am looking for some black patent/suede platform court shoes, have tried loads but am having real problems getting ones that fit properly. Am usually a size 5 but find that I always have a gap at the back of my shoe and the shoe slips off and if I go down a size (or half size) they fit better at the back but my toes start to go numb from lack of circulation!
I tried some lovely ones in LK Bennett earlier and the assistant reckons its the shape of my feet
So does anyone else have this problem? Do you use insoles etc to get a better fit, or go up or down a size? Or is this just normal when you wear heels?
Yes get good ones. Not gel. You can get ones that are fabric/rubber and they stick really well. I have no idea what the brand is, my mum got them for me one time and they really worked. You can't switch them around between shoes but they'll make the LK ones fit perfectly. Maybe a bit more like these
sam as pastadiva i use the half sized insoles that go under the ball of your foot. you don;t need the smaller size then, i wear very high heels and they work perfectly, without them my feet slip out and i either lose my shoe or walk like a duck trying to keep them on. also try kg shoes by jurt geiger, from john lewis, they have been brilliant, nicely shaped, good platform sole and comfy. the next ones you will probably need insoles to make them comfy to wear anyway.
