I just bought a pair of Nomis The Gloves, and bought a size smaller than usual. Nomis recommends you buy half a size smaller, but I found that one size smaller seemed to fit better. Oh how I was wrong. Anyway, I did the usual, put on gear, and put them on in warm water, soak for 20 minutes. Then I tried them at a club training session. Shortly after putting them on, both my big toes felt like the nail was coming off. It kept feeling like this for a few days, then both my big toes became very bruised. I just tried the warm water method of stretching them again, but it doesnt seem to be working. I wear 9.5s, but this time I got them in 8s.

Are there any other methods of stretching them? Or should I just try sell them or somethingarather. It seems a waste of money if I were just to let them sit there :(

i think that you should either sell them on since you havent used them much for a good price and buy a new pair or simply try sending them back.

i dont think you should start trying to strech them into shape as you might end up with them totally f**ked, and not being able to sell them or do anything with them

There are some black marks (I think from other people's boots) on the white heel part of the boot

If anyone knows how I could get those marks off, please let me know.

Also, the writing on the insole managed to wear itself off, that is, the Nomis logo is no longer there.

Rubbing alcohol, nail polish remover, white spirits to remove scuffs, since the logo is gone sell them and get a new pair.

Sell them for a reasonable price and get a new pair. They are no good if they are too small and making ur foot feel like it's being crushed. They are also no use just sitting there. Sell them at a garage sale lol, to a friend or on www.ebay.com
