Absolutely the only way to get a proper fit for your feet is to use your feet as the mold. Put them on and stretch and pad the felted shoes to fit your feet. Then sit with your feet up until dry, if you just have to knit, I guess that is OK.

And don't forget that if they don;t fit properly they may have to be soaked again and Put them on and stretch and pad the felted shoes to fit your feet. Then sit with your feet up until dry again. Repeat until they fit properly.
