BM Shoes Complaint

So my MOH and I picked out the shoes for the BMs, they all purchased the shoes and everything was all good. Suddenly, my taller and full figured BMs begin to tell me that they can't walk well in the shoes or they don't feel comfortable in the shoes because the heel is too thin and they prefer platform shoes. I don't want the girls to feel or be uncomfortable but I don't want them to wear all different shoes either. My question is should I tell them to buy new shoes and then what about the three that are fine in the shoes and have no complaints? Should they have to buy new shoes too?

    Is there a way to get a shoe that's similar to the other three Bm"s?

    Can you maybe alternate the ladies so it will look like the shoe thing was planned? That would mean your two full figured BM"s will have to get the same shoes.

    I let all my BM"s pick their own black open toe shoes because my MOH can't walk in heels like the rest of my BM's so my MOH has some kitten heels and the others have regular 3-4 inch heels

    IDK... I guess I would have to just do some major searching... here is the shoe they currently have http://www.amazon.com/ALDO-Makinson-Evening-Sandals-Silver/dp/B003QQAQAO/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1300934042&sr=8-1

    My girls are all wearing the same color shoes.  

    One of my MB does not wear hight heels due to her having MS.  The other two and tall and really dont need a high heel. MOH is short. 
    they all have silver shoes, as do I.

    Fact is, not every foot fits every shoe.  I have side feet, so I have to pick shoes that wont squeeze my feet.

    See if they can come up with a shoe that is similar to the ones you picked out.  

    Dont stress over it.  Especially if their dress cover their shoes.  Even if the dresses dont cover the shoes... It will be OK.  You will have bigger battles to fight.

    One of my BM got her shoes at Payless.  They have stepped up their game. I was a bit surprised.

    So true... thanks ladies! I just feel bad about them possibly having wasted money but maybe they can get refunds... I know it will work out and this is minor!

    Those shoes are cute.  I may have found a shoe that I can suggest to my BM's.  Im not sweating their shoes as long as its the same color.  But this is a great suggestion and reasonably priced.

    On the topic, as a pp stated, if the other two get similar shoes that it can look as if it was planned.  This is minor and it will work itself out in the end.

    I would let them buy their own shoes, but the same color as the original shoe. Also, see if they can all buy the same shoe so that its only 2 different types of shoes going on, if possible. I think it'll be fine though.

    LOVE that shoes Sweets

    I am letting mine pick out whatever shoe they want bc feet are a tricky thing and not every BM wants to wear a 4" heel like i would prefer lol
