    Hi, I just bought a couple of stunning pairs of Fratelli Borgioli shoes, and although I bought UK 7.5 size, they are both half a size too big. Is there anything I can do to make them go small... I read the advice at this link and wondered if anyone had every tried anything like this.

    Regards

    I wouldn't try it. It doesn't seem possible.

    Just get heel, or tongue pads.

    You can also try insoles.

    Tongue pads and insoles. Or sell them before you do too much damage.
