Typically on these ballet boots the heels are about 10mm too long. I had a pair of similar ones once(same model but matt leather) and shortened the heel slightly. I could then walk in them after a fashion. They are long since gone.

You need to extract the heel tip, peel back the covering on the heel, cut off 10mm with a hacksaw or grinder, drill deeper for the pin, put back the heel covering and hammer in the tip. It's not too hard if you have reasonable tools.

From that photo it turns out i had the boots on the wrong feet.

Standing and walking in ballet heels takes a little practice, but you'll get there.

Get some toe pads.

Would rolled up ankle socks do just as good?

Not really......

any padding is better than none, its just ballet toe pads make ballets walkable,

IMHO

Thanks! I'm getting better, a month after acquiring them.
