Default Heels

I just bought two pairs of Ellies, one pair with straps and another that is slip on toe..size 7 which is the correct length. I have Fred Flintstone feet so they are wide and these heels are nowhere even close to fitting...length is perfect...I know someone her has to have had this problem Not sure if they make wider or if a bigger size will fix the problem...husband used to use a shoe stretcher and given the straps are vinyl........hmmm

I think they should stretch out no? Most competition shoes do. Mine are a size smaller than my normal shoe size and fit like a glove

I have THE WIDEST FLINTSTONE FEET EVER! Seriously. I've found myself often having to go up in size with shoe brands just so they fit width wise. My Ellie's without the strap (prefer no strap) DID stretch out. Use them around the house for half hour at time and they should be fine by comp day, esp. if you drop water.

Try and stretch them- perhaps newspaper? How far along are you- I am guessing 6-8 weeks? Like Becca said, you will be amazed how your body changes (even feet) when your very close.
