Heel gripper things to keep slightly too large shoes on?

Do they exist?!

Size 6.5 is slightly too big and a 6 is too tight.... its probably the style of shoe as well but I keep walking out if them. Is there anything to keep your shoes on?!

Heel grips, scholl do them as do other brands. the best ones are the leather/suede ones. insoles can help as well

Thanks very much, do you think I'd pick them up in tesco or do I have to go to a shoe shop?

I'd try both types - leather and, if they don't work, the gel ones. I have slim heels, but wide feet, so I've tried these I the past. I'm sorry to report that I've had no success with the gel ones - they always roll up and stick to my heel. The leather ones are better, but they still tend to go sticky at the edges.

I've now given up and resorted t shoes with a strap over the top.

Our local tesco stocks them so I would think you'd be able to get some fairly easily smile

If not timpsons usually sell them!

Be very careful applying, you may need extra glue and then leave for at least 24 hrs, that way they stay out and no sticky outers sticking to you.

Try sizers they worked for me!

Wilkinsons. Suede ones. Cheap as chips and really work. Don't buy the gel kind: they're rubbish!

Use a leather insole or half insole. Those heel grips never worked for me and they ruin your tights!
