Erg. I bought a pair of shoes online that I ended up not ever wearing because it was too tight. I kept hoping it'd somehow magically fit and left it in my closet. I realized recently that the store has a one year return policy and decided to just return the damned thing. I checked my records and found out I missed the return deadline by a couple of weeks. *sighs* Now I have a lovely pair of shoes I can't wear without what I suspect would be quite a bit of pain that I can't let go because they weren't cheap. I'm wondering if stretching can save them....How much can leather shoes be stretched? GAH.

I counted up the number of manga I bought this last trip and it was a pathetic amount. I even forgot to pick up the new Viewfinder! I am now rethinking my run around Japan then end up in Tokyo and go crazy shopping strategy, as the go crazy shopping can't happen if your body is exhausted and unwell from the running around Japan by the time you get to Tokyo. The best new book I picked up this last trip is hands down S.S.SP. I know I mentioned the book, but I haven't had the time to write a lovingly detailed post on it.

Does the store accept exchanges? Maybe you can ask for a for a bigger size.

Nope, only returns. And I missed the deadline. But apparently you can get a shoe stretched half a size bigger...maybe it'll work for me. I don't mind trying since it's a lost cause at this point. :P

leather can be stretched, but i'm not sure if that will damage the facade of your shoes. look forward to your "lovingly detailed post" on SSSP! Thanks in advance! ^__^

I think I'll give the stretching a try.

A coworker told me once that you can take leather shoes to a shoe smith and have them stretched. About a 1/2 size, I think? I usually avoid leather shoes so I've never tried it, though.

Thanks for the tip! Will try it. Can't hurt at this point.
