You know the pair... The super cute flats that you found at Target or Nordstrom Rack for super cheap. You love them, but after an hour or so you're ready to walk around barefooted because the back of your heels are killing you. Here's a simple fix... Be aware, this isn't a 'do it right before you leave' project. The adhesive needs to set properly, or you'll wind up tossing your cute shoes in the nearest trash can!

Step 1: Step 1

Gather materials: - annoying shoes - craft clamps or clothespins (you can get these at the dollar store) - seam ripper - a good adhesive: Liquid Fusion, E-6000, Gorilla Glue, etc.
THANK! YOU! I thought I'd wasted $50 on suede Hush Puppy flats. They were incredibly comfortable, except the dang elastic!!! Thanks A TON!
Thanks!! It certainly isn't the same as not having any elastic in there, but it certainly helps!! :)
This is genius! I don't know who came up with this style, but they have definitely injured thousands of people at this point. ;)
