Ferragamo shoe question

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Due to my wide feet I'm forced to wear Allen Edmonds or F and G widths from shoes made in UK. I bought a pair of Ferragamo's yesterday (Diego, brown suede, in EE) and the width is fine but they are tight across the top of the foot - I've never had a pair of shoes be tight in this area while the width is fine - do you think this will stretch a bit? (it's the area under the Farragamo buckle)

If they are that bad, you might want to take them to a cobbler and ask them to stretch that part of the shoe slightly.

Ferragamo shoes don't stretch, your instep is too wide or too high. better to get a different shoe, that has a wider or higher instep, or skip mocs and look for shoes with laces.

they are really close to fitting well after having a shoe tree in them for 24 hours...I think I may endure - I got such a good deal (they were 50% off plus I had a gift card for $75)....

The Diego may stretch over time. Based on my experiences with Ferragamo, those that have a slight tightness will stretch over a period of 3-4 wears. If you have a wide foot, you may do better with Ferragamo deerskin shoes or his laced shoes. Stay away from the narrower cuts.

Ferragamos generally run narrow. If the shoes don't stretch with wear, take them to a shoe repair shop for a professional stretching.

Thank you - I'm going to wear them and make them work - I think they'll be alright - thanks for your input - I've wanted a pair of these for a while and 12/26 was a great day to buy a pair at the Ferragamo store at South Coast....My closet is full of Allen Edmonds shoe boxes, except for a pair of Loakes and Alfred Sargents, that's all I have - I really wanted something different...
