Hi,

I was at the local golf store in my town (Golf Town in Barrie, Ontario), and they had these limited edition Addidas Powerband Boa Boost golf shoes with a white/red colour combo with Canada written on the side (Canadian flag inspired design).

They look so cool and I really want to buy them, but they are a half size too big, and the only ones they have left....

Does anyone know if you can shrink golf shoes? or even another place to buy them?

Thanks

You can use an insole or thicker socks to fill the gap.

Use a tongue pad and/or use a thicker insole. Or like previous poster said wear a thicker sock. A shoe a little big is okay, too tight is much worse.

Go to a shoemaker and get them to sew in an insert into the back of the heel.  1/2 a size is about an 1/8" in length.

A couple of big comfort pads (the kind for corns/blisters) in the heal might be a quick/easy way to test it before you have a cobbler do the work... you could also play around with multiples stacked, one in the toe and one in the tongue, etc to see exactly what and where you want them permanently installed.
