While I didn’t buy them for their practicality or durability, I do like these fun and inexpensive shoes. The steps on the Amalfi Coast can be tough on shoes, even if you take them carefully. Anyone have any ideas or tips on how I might fix this little problem on the right toe? Grazie!

Cute indeed! Does your toe actually come through the hole? Seems like it would be hard to fix so that it would stay fixed…so if your toe doesn’t actually come through (e non ti da fastidio) I might suggest cutting the other shoe to match hahaha 🙂
Now that’s a clever idea, Michelle! I just checked and my toe doesn’t actually go through the hole. I think there was just too much pressure from going up and down a bazillion steps, which is everyday life here. 🙂 (Must have been designed for the flat midwest where I bought them …) If I can’t get it to stay fixed in any way, I do think I could just cut out that broken piece on both and it wouldn’t be that noticeable. Thanks for the idea!
I would recommend just cutting the one that’s already broken. You might weaken the left foot shoe unnecessarily. 🙂
Very true! Thanks, Saretta! 🙂

That is a great idea! Maybe you could also lightly glue a white lace liner under the front section of each shoe to better hide your toes. (I often add lace liners to hems of skirts that are too short.)
Ciao Christina! Thanks for stopping by and for your comment. 🙂 Love the idea of the lace lining … I’ll think about that option, too! Thanks so much!!
