I would add that trimming the waist to narrow could take away from some of the support of the shoe particularly under the arch of your foot.
A good cobbler could disguise this easily but, for diy-selfer's you can do it with some patience's. Get a small tube of rubber cement. It's good to have in the house anyway.
