• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

Making Low Vamp Loafers Fit Better?

Has anybody had success making low vamp loafers more comfortable?

I have a pair with a very low instep. I think this is causing the discomfort in one of my feet. One foot is fine. One foot, my big toe is rubbing against the end.

I was thinking that maybe, with a bit more arch support, my foot would "curl" or arch, effectively shortening my foot in the loafer and the toe would no longer rub at the end.

Does this make sense?

no. Trying to force an arch would only end up giving you some type of foot dysfunction.

I’m not sure there’s a solution. Is it rubbing or is it too tight?
Just the toe is rubbing and the heel a bit. If I roll my foot outward while walking it feels fine.
