re-sizing shoes?

re-sizing shoes?

So... I knew this would be the BEST place to ask since all of you are geniuses at having skills! :P My mother has 2 pairs of GORGEOUS, perfectly clean and modern shoes that she doesn't wear. I tried them on today and I see that they're about a half-size too small for me. I can fit my foot inside easily, but I know that they'll begin to squeeze very quickly if I try to walk in them. My question......... is there a home-remedy for "extending" a shoe size about half a size? I'm sure I've heard that this is possible without needing to take it to a shoe shop and having it professionally done.... please help!
