Shoes can be stretched for increased comfort. A shoe repair shop can do this for you or you can do it yourself.
The Shoe Shine Kit sells stretchers for men’s shoes, women’s shoe and women’s high heel shoes.
The direction for using a shoe stretcher are simple:
Wet down shoes inside and out with the Shoe Stretch Solution. On cloth or suede shoes you might test solution on inconspicuous area to make sure it doesn’t stain the material. Decide whether you need to use the bunion pods and either remove them or move them to the appropriate location on the stretcher. Insert stretcher as far as possible into the shoe. Start to crank the stretcher open, continue turning until pressure appears on the upper. DO NOT OVERSTRETCH. For best results leave on overnight. If necessary repeat the process.
One shoe stretcher is all you need, you can use the same one for the left or right foot. You can also purchase shoe trees to be inserted in your shoes while storing to keep their shape.
