Has anyone tried the new Dansko XP? - page 2

    Glad they worked out for you! I would try some sort of padding on your pinky toe while they're still breaking in. A good, sticky bandaid (maybe even add in a corn cushion) might do the trick saving the need for stretching the shoe. I have a bunch of other tricks to try from past figure skating and athletic training experiences if you need more than just a bandaid and a small amount of cushioning - just ask and I can try to remember some of my MacGyverings.

    I'm going to try the band aids tonight. I also bought this thing from Target called "Fab Feet" which is supposed to help prevent rubbing, so we'll see. I'm interested in your other MacGyverings, though haha

    Moleskin covering a corn pad, makeshift bandaid with gauze and whatever tape is available, etc. My first career in athletic training required some MacGuyverings for things from stopping persistent finger bleeds to padding casts and anything in between. There are also these tube things that are gel on one side and cloth on the other that can be cut to size, but I'm not sure if there's an affordable one in a small enough size for a pinkie toe. My favorite indulgence is second skin squares. If you're not familiar with them, they're a thin, water based flexible gel over a mesh that provides a nice thin barrier (and they feel amazing right outta the fridge). The only draw back to this is they are pricier than just a bandaid and corn pad.

    Thank you so much! The bandaids/Fab Feet combo seem to be working. The rubbing is still there and the spot still gets irritated, but now it's bearable. I was able to wear them two nights in a row instead of having to switch to another pair of shoes for my second night. Hoping I can go three for three tonight
