Novel Service Breaks In New Shoes (Feb, 1940)

Novel Service Breaks In New Shoes
Breaking in stiff new shoes for persons with tender feet or for women who want to squeeze a size-eight foot into a size-six shoe, is one of the unique services performed by the operators of a New York City firm. A corps of girls takes on this unenviable task, while the proprietors busy themselves with other unusual requests of clients, such as filling a midnight call for a violinist to play a sick child to sleep, and first scouting around for and then purchasing two penguins as a present for a pet lover.

    ‘for women who want to squeeze a size-eight foot into a size-six shoe’… I cannot imagine doing this. I can only go down about a half-size before my feet protest. I am so glad I’m not so vain that I must wear a tiny shoe.
