Got a shoe problem? It happens to most of us. We fall in love with a pair of shoes, only to bring them home and find them a teeny bit snug around the feet, making it awkward in walking or staying in for too long. For such a heartbreaking problem, we have a solution! Read below to see how tight shoes cant be stretched out.
Usually, there are tools that help in stretching out a shoe to make it comfortable for the foot. This tool is called a shoe stretcher. However, if you face the problem at home and don’t have time to run to a shoe shop, simply follow this simple trick:
- Fill a spray bottle with equal parts of water and rubbing alcohol.
- Spray the inside and the outside of the shoe, especially at the points where you feel it is uncomfortable.
- Quickly put on the shoes and walk around them to loosen them. The alcohol should be slightly damp as you wear the shoes and not be dried out.
- If the shoes are still a bit tight, soak a pair of thick socks in the rubbing alcohol. Put the socks on and then the shoes over them. Walk around to stretch them open until the alcohol dries.
