    Default What do you do if your shoes are too loose?

    Okay. Here is the situation. I got some new shoes, they are the proper size and everything, BUT, they are too loose. No matter what I do, my heel will ALWAYS slip. I could of course tighten the laces, but they are skate shoes so that would look like crap and entirely destroy the point of having them. I've tried tape (my sock still goes up and down and will give me blisters), I've tried heel inserts (does nothing), I've tried extra socks, taping the tongue down, putting foam EVERYWHERE in the shoe, everything. Does anyone have any advise? Some way to tighten the shoe without making it look like it's tightened?

    If they are too loose, wouldn't that mean that they're NOT the proper size?

    That is why you try on shoes... don't just assume that because the listed size is typically what you wear, that they will fit correctly. How old are you? If your feet are still growing, stick the shoes in the closet and pull them out in 6 months and try again.

    ok bud ... after time this slip of yours will go away. all i do is wear skate shoes and this happens at the start, but after time it will stop. i know this may seem like it doesn't make cents, but just trust me...

    You already have your answer (tie your laces), it's just that you're choosing fashion over function. If you want to look "cool", and don't want to tie your laces, then like other people have said, get a smaller shoe.
