Sometimes it’s a duck waddle, sometimes it looks as if you have a wooden leg as you try to keep the weight off of one side and sometimes, if you’re like me, the shoes are now in your hands and you could care less that you’re dressed cute and now have no shoes on.  We’ve all seen it and we all know what it looks like when we see it on someone else.  It’s the walk that says “Damn! These shoes hurt!”

The solution is to make certain to buy shoes that fit.  I know that sounds like a silly suggestion but I’ve spent enough time in the shoe department to know that many women will buy a half size smaller or a half size larger just because they love the look of the shoe and it doesn’t come in their exact size.  Ladies, ladies, if it isn’t available in your size, it’s not meant to be.  Move on and look for something different.  If I know a pair of shoes are uncomfortable, I will wear them long enough to discover that and then they’ll end up sitting or going to charity.  You can size your own foot if you are unsure of what will fit you.  Find out how to do that here.

Many of us bought the shoes that were our size but because shoes are not made specifically for our feet, they can still get to be quite uncomfortable after extended wear.  I just recently found out that you can give your shoes a makeover, let me warn you that if you love your shoes like I do, this video shared by someone that can relate to the pain, can and will hurt your feelings before it liberates you.  😉

What if you bought the shoe in the right size and it’s still a little tight?  I’ve said it & I know you have too “wear it a few times and it’ll stretch out”.  Fess up, you know you’ve said that 😉  In the meantime, our poor little tootsies are suffering.  Well did you know they have a little device that will take your pain away and stretch those shoes out for you?  They do, they’re called…..drum roll…..wait for it……SHOE STRETCHERS!  I know, wasn’t that well worth the wait?  You can get them in varying styles and sizes too!  They offer a boot stretcher, a stretcher that will stretch your length & width and they even have a high heel stretcher.  So here’s to putting an end to the duck waddle & the next time you see a fellow shoe lover with the stiff leg, let her know, there are solutions.  Happy Shopping!
