How to Modify Shoes to Fit Correct Toes

Similar to making alterations to a new dress off the rack, footwear may need some nips and cuts to perfectly fit you. Use the following guide to walk you through common footwear modifications.
How to Modify Correct Toes
Correct Toes come in four sizes: X-Small, Small, Medium and Large. While these options fit many people out of the packaging, there may be additional ways to customize your pair. Modifications can increase comfort and allow for a better fit. Modifications are outlined in both PDF and Video format.

How to Make a Shim
