blimey what a coincidence
I took a pair of shoes to be stretched today

They are supremely ugly black lace ups from hotter where they are stretching them for me as they are too narrow

Apparently they will also do it in shoe repair shops.

Takes a day or two.

So you can stretch them but can you shrink them???

you can get leather heel insert thingis from superdrug - they make them shorter

And put insoles in - takes about half a size off depending on thickness (insole's, not yours).
