Sizers - The solution to ill-fitting shoes!


Court shoes are the bane of my life, I love wearing them yet I just cannot seem to find a pair that fit me without slipping off my feet. Like many of you, I have tried heel grips, but unless the shoes are only marginally too big, these are no good. Thankfully, Sizers have come up with a solution – shoe inserts to make your shoes smaller! Such a simple concept, yet so effective!

I first tried the ¼ Sizer on New Years Eve and was suitably impressed. You place the soft foam insert at the front of your shoe, effectively making your shoe a smaller size, which is held in place by your feet. There are ridges on the foam to help cushion your toes and I can honestly say, although it felt a little odd at first, once they mold to your feet you cannot even feel that they are there.  They lasted all night and my feet stayed firmly in my shoes - always good when you have been drinking!

I would highly recommend trying Sizers out if you do suffer from ill-fitting shoes - they have saved many of my shoes from being given away. They come in three different sizes; ¼, ½ and 1, so if you have size 6 shoes yet you are a 5 ½, insert the ½ Sizer and you are good to go. These can be used again and again, whether it is because your shoes are too loose or because you want to borrow a friends pair of shoes! You can also mix and match if you have different sized feet (apparently over 60% of the population see a difference in size between their left and right foot - sometimes as much as two sizes!) :)

Do you struggle with shoes not fitting correctly?

  1. Oh these are great. I have seen so many shoes I love but couldn't buy (I swear some shops have their own sizing policy) so may have to give this a go :_

  5. These sound so brilliant! Always awkward when inbetween shoes. I always end up opting for the bigger size then not wearing them!

  6. WOW this is amazing I need these!! I hate shoes... I swear to find a pair that fits and is comfortable is such a mission - esp as so many places don't do half sizes so they're either too big or too small.
