Easy Tricks To Stretch Too-Small Shoes
Tight shoes can be quite uncomfortable, especially when they are new. Well, you do not have to be worried because we will show you how to stretch them with our simple trick.
Sure, they did seem to fit when you tried them on at the department store, but after wearing them for a few hours, you realize that they are actually uncomfortably tight. This does happen. If you can’t return the shoes—or don’t want to—there are ways you can stretch them out to fit.
Here are a couple quick—and painless—ways to stretch your shoes at home.
1: Stretch with a blowdryer: Typically shoes loosen up naturally as you wear them from place to place, but that entire process could take weeks—weeks of tiptoeing around with crunched toes and blooming blisters. Speed up the process using thick socks and a blowdryer.
Put on a very thick pair of socks (or several pairs) and squeeze your feet into the shoes. Then, take a hairdryer and blast the tight areas with hot air while flexing and stretching your feet. Keep the shoes on while they cool down and then check the results while wearing your normal socks or stockings. You can repeat this process several times until you get a good fit. But be aware that too much heat will dry out the leather, so give your shoes a soothing treatment of shoe cream or polish afterwards.
Also, remember that water will make leather brittle so wet shoes should be dried gently, not placed in front of the fire or on top of a radiator. You can speed up the drying and help wet shoes and boots keep their shape by stuffing them with newspaper.
2: Use the freezer method: We have all heard that water expands as it freezes. Well, freezing your shoes also expands them. All you have to do if fill a sandwich bag for each foot with water about 1/4th full. Insert the bags up into your shoes, stick them in the freezer and leave them there until the water freezes. Once it does, allow it to thaw, take out the bags, and try on your shoes. If one round of freezing doesn’t do the trick, try a second time. This method can be a little tricky, as you will need to make sure the water doesn’t leak when put inside the shoe. For shoes (such as canvas) that can get wet, however, freezing the whole shoe can work as well. Get the whole shoe wet, add the water inside, and freeze it all. When everything thaws out, hopefully you will have a shoe that fits.
