New Gianmarco Lorenzi Pumps Stressed Beyond Belief

I just got the most delicious little (size 35.5) Gianmarco Lorenzi brown pumps on ebay.
Here they are in their virgin condition, which will soon change. :twisted:

I like to give my pumps special preparation for their future life of hard abuse. This makes them more soft and flexible.

First I soak them well in hot water to soften them up:

Next I pry the cardboard insoles out of the long pointy toes. Pliers help.

Here's a picture with the cardboard insole pulled out of the long pointy toe ready to be cut off:

Here are both pumps with the cardboard insoles removed:

Now it gets tricky. I pry the rubber protective strips out of the leather soles and
carefully shave the soles down to a fraction of their original thickness with a sharp utility knife:

Here they are ready for action:

I have been trying to jam my big ugly size 41 feet into these poor delicate little size 35.5 pumps.

After much soaking, squeezing and lubricating, I have been able to force fit my left foot (my smallest foot) into the left pump.

It wasn't exactly a comfy fit, but it went in!! :shock:

Take a look at the poor little sucker struggling under my 220 lb weight :twisted:

After more soaking and stretching, I have been able to force both pump s to fit, so now I can wear and abuse them together.

I must admit that these poor little pumps do look quite stressed when they are carrying me around. They haven't ripped a bit,
but stretched a lot. One of the backs is getting quite downtrodden.

These have got to be the toughest little pumps I have ever had.
Imagine squeezing the size 41 feet of a 220 lb man into poor little size 35.5 pumps, and then kicking the sh*t out of them!
They actually look quite normal after the abuse is over.
