Shoes:the home stretch

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Does anyone have any advice for stretching shoes at home? (It goes without saying that it is ideal to buy shoes that fit, but I have a pair of shoes that are a wee bit tight at the widest point of my foot. I have the leather stretch spray, and the shoe tree that widens as the screw threaded through it is turned. I can attach a lump to different portions of the tree to in order to give room in a particular area of the toe. Does the leather stretch do any harm to shoes when used in moderation? When used in buckets? Is there a technique to using this type of shoe tree? Bic

I don't know -- but it's not something I'd try to do myself at home, except to a very minor degree. On the other hand, I did once take shoes to a cobbler to get them stretched. I got charged some minor sum of money and whatever they did worked. The shoes thereafter fit properly. I think it's something cobblers do fairly often - consider taking in your shoes if it's more than a very minor stretch.
