Why don't you just get them hemmed?

Because logically that makes too much sense? Really though, I had no clue how anything should fit. These were comfortable at the time of trying on, but now that I'm adulting more they won't make the cut too often due to how they sit on my lower half. But they make the suede pop smile.gif

I regularly walk out of the house wearing shoes that exceed the total combined cost of all the other clothing I'm wearing that day. Today is one of those days.

These (formerly) walnut Fenways have mostly been relegated to beater/lousy weather status... but sometime you just need to end your week in some LWBs.

Several years ago I started to upgrade my wardrobe and I found dozens of really helpful videos on youtube. Lots of information on pants and basic things that any tailor can do to alter them in both length and tapering that can make a huge difference in fit and look. Check them out. I was AMAZED how much better I looked by removing the excessive length from puddling around the top of my shoes and tapering the legs when needed. I now expect to have some alteration done to every pair of pants I purchase. Once you get them to fit and look better you will never go back.

I have a pair of shoes that I would like to rest about a full finger thickness further down the shoe toward the toe.  There is not heel slip, but I can feel that the ball of my foot is just not quite where I want it to be and it feels better when I force my foot further down the shoe.  This is a recent problem, and I have found, in trying on multiple shoes, depending on the last (and sometimes depending on the particular shoe) the 11 or the 11.5 eee could work.  It's not a fatal issue for this shoe for me, but I'm sure I'd find it more comfortable if I could get my foot to permanently rest a little further down in the shoe.  

 

Has anyone had experience with heel pads to try and push the foot further down the shoe?

I tried some but the problem was that they would always come off so easily.  The friction from my socks would always make them lose stickiness.

....LOL! I think only my flipflops are less expensive than any clothes I would be wearing...somedays my socks exceed the rest(minus shoes). I was just thinking that even my boat shoes now cost more than my combine clothes that I would wear in any day.

So I just picked up these Walnut Strands from Nordstrom on their Anniversary sale.  I just did a quick one over and saw this on the bottom of the heel.  Is this the thread coming out?  Not sure if it should be like this or am I over reacting?

That should not be like that. The stitching should be inside that groove the entire way around the shoe so that it's not so exposed to the friction involved in making contact with the walking surface. Since you paid for first quality shoes, I would recommend exchanging them.
