Is there a place I can purchase tongue pads, besides a shoe store? I would like to avoid purchasing online if possible. If you have access to Nordstrom's, you can get them for free. Just go up to any person in the shoe dept (can even be women's) and ask for tongue pads. Just say it was for shoe you purchased (or for your girlfriend). Last time I asked, they just handed me 3 pairs with no questions asked.
