My post wasn't terribly clear, sorry. My plan is to buy the inserts, but I'm wondering if this gap is too big to close. Maybe they'll feel perfectly fine with the insert, but then become intolerably big again as the day wears on? I'd hate to be left with the wrong size.
They are quite low cut at the front so this might not work. I use foam, like a sponge, in at the toes or the front sides to push my foot back a little, and possibly also heel grips. I have very narrow feet and often have to make shoes fit.
Using foam is better than something firm like cotton wool. The foam is kinder to your feet and somewhat more forgiving as regards comfort. This works for me but with boots and brogues.
Not sure you have enough of a shoe upper to give you space to play with as your toes are already on show.
I've never got them to work. Eventually realised that if a shoe doesn't fit, you can't make it fit. And as Myrna mentioned, being flats they are probably going to slip off your heels even with grippers. Shame!
