You spot the best pair of shoes (ever), perhaps even a little sale going on, and you want them 100%, badly. But they don’t quite fit and the size up is way too big. Then you start asking yourself, is it my sock? Are my feet swollen? How can I morph my body to fit into these? What am I doing wrong to not fit into these shoes? Nothing, my dear. Nothing. Your foot won’t grow to a perfect size 8. And what’s worse is mentally preparing yourself for the dreaded ‘break in’ period. I know those all too well. How many shoes have I purchased only to tell myself I’d just need to ease through the break-in period. Oy. Blisters, limping, hidden bandages, and sore, throbbing feet at the end of the day.
