You walk into a store, see the perfect pair of shoes, then find out the store doesn't carry it in your size. Instead of going home empty-handed, you can buy the shoes a size too big for your feet, then slide in an insert to help pad your foot against the show, which helps your foot fit comfortably into the new footwear.

  1. 1

    Buy an insert that is the same size as the shoe you have. If the insert is designed for a shoe of a different size it will not fit properly. You can find these inserts at stores the sell shoes and at most grocery stores or stores like Target, Walmart and K-Mart.

  2. 2

    Slide the insert into the shoe. You may need to push the tip of the insert in completely with your hand, as it often becomes stuck while sliding in.

  3. 3

    Insert your foot into the shoe and tie the laces, straps or any other attachment. Your foot now fits correctly into the shoe.
