I've had this problem with my daughter's shoes, and her foot is very narrow. I cut down some generic-brand Dr. Scholl's-type insoles (available at grocery and drugstores) and that did the trick.
1. Get the appropriate sized insoles, and lay the right show on the right insole, and the left shoe on the left insole. Trace them with a pen.
2. Cut out the insole, cutting slightly inside the lines-- the inside of the shoe is smaller than the outside.
3. Work the insoles inside the shoe. Use your fingers to feel around the edges to see where you need to trim them to fit.
4. If it's too long, don't trim all the length off the toe, or all the length off the heel... you'll mess up where the arch curves.
Good luck! I hope it works for you.

I have found that a simple phone call can do wonders! Companies such as Hush Puppies has built a reputation which I am sure they want to uphold, so customer service and satisfaction is important to them. Their phone number is 1-866-699-7365 (M-F, 9:00 - 7:00). Here is a link to their site as well:

http://www.hushpuppies.com/US/en-US/ContactUs/Form.mvc.aspx

I highly suggest a phone call rather than an email. Simply explain what happened (and it wouldn't hurt to say something like "I am a big fan of Hush Puppies and have never had this problem before.") and offer a solution (i.e., you will pay to ship the shoes back if they will send you a replacement pair or fix yours). Companies are more receptive if you already have a solution in mind rather than just calling to complain and vent. And no matter how rude the person on the other end of the phone is, maintain your composure and be abrupt but polite. If the person is not willing to help you (even if they say they are sorry but there is just nothing they can do), ask to speak to the manager/supervisor. ALWAYS get the name (first and last) of the person you are speaking with and make a note of it. If the manager/supervisor does not assist you to your satisfaction then keep moving up the chain.

If after all your efforts they still say "no," then repeat their names and let them know that you are going to report them to the Better Business Bureau (or whatever version you have in your country). Don't be surprised if they change their tune!

Good luck and "walk on!"

Happy shopping!

What are leather shoe care & maintenance tips and advice?


Some tips from our in-house experts
Caring for your Clark's footwear will not only prolong the life of your shoes, but will keep them looking in tip-top condition for longer. Here are a few key steps you can take to look after your favorite leather footwear.
  1. Use a damp cloth to remove soiling then let dry naturally - never on top of a radiator, next to the oven, near the fireplace - just somewhere at room temperature.
  2. Use a colored polish that matches your shoe color to restore any damaged areas, filling in the scuffed away spots .
  3. Use a good leather cream - this acts like a moisturizer for your shoes but with added benefits, again helping to build up a protective barrier.
  4. Use a shoe-protecting product to build up a protective barrier, this way, your shoes will last longer!
THE SHOEMAKER"S TOP TIP
To get a really good shine use a damp cloth when polishing leather shoes. Once the cloth starts to 'grip', stop polishing, let the shoe dry naturally, then buff with a dry cloth. Repeat until your achieve the level of shine you want. All shoes will benefit from a shoe-tree, especially leather shoes which have been wet as the tree will help maintain a good shape.

It could be the upper sliding on the sole. Taking a drop of extra virgin olive oil and putting at the flex point of the shoe should help.

Keep leather shoes moist


Why do you want to do that? Leather is like skin in that it needs some moisture in it, but no too much! Saddle soap will help moisturize leather

Why do my shoes turn my feet red and itchy when no other shoes do never had such dreadfull reaction to the point of going to doctor


There is something about these shoes causing your allergic reaction. It could be chemicals in the material or possibly the material itself.

Shoes that have latex rubber in the composition can do this to people with latex sensitivities, which can develop at anytime in a person's life.
If you use foot balms or cream, oils in the formula can react with latex rubber, causing it to degrade and in turn, cause irritation.

If VOCs (common in many materials,) are responsible, the gas will air off with time and the problem will have taken care of itself. VOCs have what is generally recognized as a 'new car' or in this case, 'new sneakers' smell. These can be skin irritants.

The Nubuck may have been chemically treated to repel dirt. The chemicals are not meant to make direct skin contact when they are 'fresh', but will break down and diminish with time - up to a year.


For now, try a nice medium thick bamboo full sock with the shoes, so that no skin makes contact with the shoes. Don't use foot cream. You could let the shoes air out for a few weeks before wearing them again.
If you still experience intense itching, ask a Podiatrist. They are wizards when it comes to shoes+feet.

Hi, My Dr. Scholl's Massaging Gel arch supports keep slipping forward in my shoes. Is there a way to keep them from doing this? Thanks, Alan


Alan, I would suggest using a strong double sided tape in order to secure the insert to the shoe. Scotch makes such proucts and are easily found at any grocery store for usually less than $3 a roll.
You could also try using a velcro strips to keep the insert from slipping as well. Again these should be available at any Wal-Mart like store or even online here for example:http://www.google.com/products/catalog?hl=en&sugexp=ldymls&pq=strong+double+sided+tape&xhr=t&q=velcro+strips&cp=11&qe=dmVsY3JvIHN0cmk&qesig=X-MRxLCWqCTTTFQbKRqapA&pkc=AFgZ2tnVCXrJO51b7_yZmYSFFTiT8coKf0mEhuz-hh0yuGXSo76gLmitq83mWiRQTLcju24ySNy8kpx6Hd03CPwRLofwPH8hYg&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.&um=1&ie=UTF-8&tbm=shop&cid=8801003739356938746&sa=X&ei=vivQTeLCBJPogQekuNStDA&sqi=2&ved=0CGMQ8wIwAA#

How do I clean my Timberland Stormbuck (Nubuck) shoes?


  • Purchase cleaning products and brushes directly from Timberland. Their products are designed for suede, leather and nubuck.
  • Go to a shoe store like Footlocker and ask for the products they carry to clean your Timberland boots. Some sell kits and others carry suede erasers to clean the boots.
  • Wet a rag and wipe it all over the surface of the shoe. Spray on shoe cleaner and rub gently with a sponge. Rinse and let dry. Timberlands dry quickly.
  • Use a soft brush to scrub away excess dirt. Hold the boot over steam as you scrub.
  • Try baby wipes to clean your leather Timberland boots. They'll moisturize the leather and clean off grime.
  • Put your boots on, and use a wet rag as though you were giving yourself a shoe shine. Finish the spots you couldn't reach with a brush.
  • Use mink oil or saddle soap on leather boots. Both will keep the boots waterproof. Work either into the leather with a soft rag.
