How to Fix Shoes That Slip Off

Recently, I bought a pair of wedges on TaoBao(one of the most popular online shopping sites in China).

This version has sparkles in the heels!

It’s beautiful but the thing with having big feet in China is that buying shoes can be a bit of a hassle. I’m a size 41(I think that’s a US size 8.5?) but I also have a slight bunion. Yes, I just admitted that I have bunions. How embarrassing 😌. So not only do I have a length problem, but also a width issue. And then when you finally find some shoes in large sizes, they don’t look fashionable :|. I ended up getting the wedge in one size bigger and it fit, except for it’s length. It kept falling off my heel whenever I walked. So, I decided to get one of those heel pads for situations like these.

It looks kind of…weird, but it works! Hooray! It cost around RMB 10(US$ 1.50).
Another method I tried before I bought the heel pad was stuffing a thin sock(I tried tissue as well) in the toe end of the shoe(it must be a closed off end). If it won’t be visible, you can also wear a pair of socks(not silk, though). Although, these two options are only suitable for slightly larger shoes. Mine was significantly longer, so, only the pads work.

On a side note, I now get why it can be hard to walk in heels for the first time. Props to those who make it look so effortless! Now I know how ridiculous that Jurassic World scene was where the lady scientist managed to outrun a T-Rex…in heels. I enjoy a good dinosaur-chasing-human scene though 😜. 

Well, that’s all I have to say for today. Write next time!

P.S. I seriously don’t get what all the fuss ‘Pokémon-Go’ is about. People just need to calm down 😒.
