Use insoles.

You can find them easily in most supermarkets, or in smaller specialist/convenience stores, or even on the side of the road where old women and men sell them cheaply. They make most shoes a bit more comfortable and can provide a snugger fit if your shoes are loose.

Also you can find different types depending on your need: i.e. bamboo ones to keep cool; charcoal ones to remove odour; soft ones for comfort; gel ones with podiatric benefits.

Go have a look, you'll find some that suit your need!

Hi Sunilsah!

As a foreigner I have been exposed to all the great history sites of Beijing I should visit.

One came to mind for your shoe conundrum.

Neiliansheng shoe shop
34 Dazhalan Jie, Chongwen
T: 010-6301-4863
Subway Line 2 at Qianmen

They are the oldest existing cloth shoe shop in China ( since 1853 ) and provide custom service! I know there known for there cloth shoe, but heard they have other types to?
You may want to give a call or drop by, maybe they can help you out Shy

In April 1983 the Friendship store in Beijing has 12 pairs of men's size 8 black industrial shoes and 11 pair of women's size 6 brown industrial shoes.

That was the inventory allotment for the entire year.

Things have changed but not that much.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
