    I have a chance to buy a pair of beautiful AS Handgrade for an unbelievably low price. But they are pretty tight on the pinky toes, and at the instep. If they stretch a bit, they will be fine. But if they don't, they won't. I hope someone can tell me that they will stretch after a few wears.

    Thanks in advance.

    Well- made lasted shoes do not stretch very much.

    If they are made with leather they will stretch. I hate it when shoes are too tight on my pinky toe. If you want best result stretching then wear them everyday for 2 weeks they will stretch out after 2 weeks. Don’t worry when people here will tell you should not wear the same shoes for 2 days on a row. After 2 weeks you can put them on proper rotation.
