I read online that you can use water and your freezer to stretch out your shoes. So try I did. I put some water in some plastic baggies and put them in the shoes. I then put my beloved shoes in the freezer overnight, twice.
But, it did not work. My feet hurt just trying to get them on. I felt like Cinderella's step-sisters. I was almost ready to cut my toe off (but I already have a prince thankfully for my toe).
In the end I had to return them. Good bye my lovelies. I will miss you.
Moral of the story: go to Marshall's more often.
