I have a pair of Kickers ballet pumps that are lovely but still a little tight after wearing a few times - any tips?

You can also get stuff to spray on before you wear them that is supposed to stretch.

Not convinced it works though but cheap to buy if you want to give it a try.

Got mine from John Lewis

wear them round the house with really thick socks on?

I have really wide feet so I always have this proble since I wont wear old ladies shoes grin

I do what allaboutme suggests or I just put up with the pain for a couple off weeks which I dont recomend it hurts!

Why do shops think every one with wide feet is 60? sad

Put on two pairs of socks and the shoes, blast them with a hot hair dryer and do lots of flexing! smile

DH wouldn't be able to squeeze his fat hoofs into these shoes!

i put clear medical tape over the areas that chafe to prevent blisters until they stretch on their own. not scientific but cheap as chips and works!
