I did something stupid. I bought a pair of beguilingly cheap and good
looking shoes on ebay from China. They look in real life as good as online!
However, they fit TERRIBLY! The seller said to buy his shoes a size larger
Now the right one slips like crazy while the left one [doesn't slip but]
cuts in to my foot badly at the top of the heel.
Does anyone think this situation can be cured by using some sort of heel pad
to make the right shoe a bit smaller and hold the bit of the heel which cuts
into my foot at the top slightly further back or is this not a solution for
brand new shoes? Is heel padding a temporary repair which will need
replacing every too often?
What causes the heel to cut in sharply at the top? Is it mis-shapen such
that only sending it back to China will fix this problem please?
Count your blessings if you can send them back.
I was in Hong Kong one time and got diddled by a custom shoemaker called
Shoeman Lau. What I wanted was a pair of eel skin loafers, eel skin wears
I'm guessing Shoeman didn't have any eel skin because he talked me into
ostrich. Well and good except he used ostrich LEG...shiny, yellow and
scaly, just like chicken legs.
I wore them a few times but quit because I didn't have a purple velvet suit
and green beaver hat to go with them :(
