Maybe that's climate issue (Russia) or personal wearing habits (lack of any good habits at all). I had bad experience with several rather expensive fashion shoes (KENZO, Pollini, Lloyd, etc) but now I'm going to buy something from list Allen Edmonds, C&J, Alden,...
Recognize that I am on the aggressive side - but I keep 0.5% to 2% of my annual pre-tax income in the bank. I aggressively auto-debit the rest into various investments. I borrow from a personal credit line if I have a moderate crunch and liquidate in a bigger crunch. I would argue that this will force you to save more and spend less - but it is not a strategy for everyone. I have a good job and good job prospects (strong professional network including many that have...

FWIW - The same thing happened to me when I bought a pair of EGs at Saks. I also wore them for a day before realizing that one of the shoes was a 1/2 size small. They "found" me the second shoe in the correct size - though the inside labels were different and the color of the leather was imperceptibly different. Anyway they made the exchange - no issues and gave me $100 store credit to boot.
