Dumb question, but I'm asking it anyway.
Have any of you ordered any tongue pads off of Amazon.com?
I've got a couple of shoes on the 65 last that just aren't quite fitting right. I've got a pair (Black Hills) that fits spot-on, but both the Strands I ordered a while back and my recently received Mctavish are just a touch bigger. Not much bigger, just a bit. Not enough to cause heel slippage or anything, but just enough to be annoying. I'm thinking adding a tongue pad might help with filling the volume of the shoe and avoiding bowing issues on the side.
I know some folks get their cobbler to do them, but it's not like this is rocket science here. It's a pad that gets stuck to a tongue. I've been using stickers for more than 40 years now, and I'm pretty confident I can stick something to the interior of my shoe. Of course, then I started overthinking things:
What size tongue pad would I order for a 12D shoe?
How hard is it to remove the adhesive if I need to take the pad out at a later point (like, say, the summer when feet tend to swell a bit more in the heat)?
Should I even do this? I mean, I can't return the Strands, as I've worn them plenty, so I'd start with putting a pair of pads in these. But, I could return the Mctavish, only it's a clearance item and I'm not seeing any in the color I want in any of the widths a half-size down. I figured that rather than returning and paying a $10 restocking fee on a shoe that I love the looks on, I'd take a chance with a quick fix first.
