I have a pair of grey Hudson wingtip brogues (pic here http://tinyurl.com/963hsbb) that i love but just can't wear as they rub my little toes so badly, i've taken them for stretching at highstreet shoe shop but i feel little to no difference in them whatsoever (he may never have even stretched them for all i know) has anybody any tips on increasing the width of my shoes or should i take them to a real cobbler and not a guy who cuts keys and fixes shoes?
I've tried a shoe stretcher at home, but find that the little plastic things that actually stretch the area that rubs, can't be fitted in the right place because there are not the necessary holes in the right place.
I would certainly find a decent old-fashioned cobbler. There's one near London Bridge station if that's any good for you.
Thanks, i'll try taking them there.
