I’ve had these Rag & Bone shoes since April 8th, and I’ve worn them to pieces…so much, that I can’t wear them anymore. When I ordered them from Otte NY, they recommended sizing up one size, and I did. They fit perfectly when I put them on and were so comfortable to wear, walk & stand in for a couple of weeks. (everywhere else that sells these online also recommends sizing up one size). Recently, however, I’ve found that the leather has stretched SO much, that I can’t walk in them anymore. I’ve fallen a few times while wearing them because I’m trying to at the same time keep them on my feet! I’m SO disappointed.
Here they are when I first got them:
and here they are now:
They’re now a size too big!! If I’d ordered my regular size, I think they would be fine now – they would have stretched enough to be comfortable, but not too big. At this point, I think these are going to the consignment shop…I’m not aware of anyway to shrink leather – only to stretch it.
I’m going to make sure OTTE, Rag & Bone and Shopbop all know about the sizing issue, I’d really hate for someone who actually paid $375 for these to only get one month’s of wear out of them.
Has this ever happened to you before? A shoe has stretched out so much you can’t wear it anymore?
