Can you line the heel with gel heel liners or with moleskin to fill in the area where your heel is narrow? You can find such products at the foot products counters at drug stores, Wal-Mart, K-mart and Target.
On heels that high, I find I can wear 1/2 size smaller, which will help, if they're still comfy. Or, the heel inserts do work wonders--making the heel space tighter. Great shoes! I have a pair similar in leopard print with cork heels....Hot, hot, hot!!!!!
You should be able to find the heel pads in shoe departments of any major store, places like Famous Footwear or shoe repair shops. I have a problem getting any closed up, slip on shoe to fit my foot...it slips off my heel and those heel pads have never worked for me. It takes me forever to locate shoes like that which will stay on. Actually, in that style, I do better with a slingback.
You should be able to find them in almost any pharmacy in the foot dept. or in most pharmacy departments of other stores. http://www.walgreens.com/store/produ...id=prod2162517
Here is a link as an example. I have a wide foot with a narrow heel and I have these things in various brands in almost every pair of shoes I own. They do help.
I have another question ~ I bought a pair of high heeled loafers, and need the length of the size I bought for my toes, but my heel slips out of the back of them. Are the Dr. Scholls heel inserts thick enough to compensate for the little bit of extra heel room?
Or does anybody know of any thick heel inserts, or whole shoe inserts that would be good? Thanks~
