Rachel says: I have been wearing them a bit round the house, but with stockings not thick socks. I will certainly give this ago. Yes, I had heard about wetting them but wasn't sure how it worked and fear of ruining them them was a big factor! I've heard stuffing them with wet newspaper? Would the ink run? I don't know so too scared to try! Thanks for your advice! Reply

Ghost says: I usually wet the whole boot with hot water put soaks on and walk around in them for a couple of hours. This works for me. Cheers. Reply

The shoes probably fit you by now, have just seen the date you posted this.
If you take them to a place called Mr Minute that cuts keys ect, they have a stretching machine.
I give the wet newspaper a BIG miss, get them stretched professionally :)

Hope your problem has been solved by now,

Enjoy your week :)
Cheers,
