A shoe stretcher is a nifty little gadget that can help you relieve some pain in your feet. If your footwear feesl just a little bit too small and are rubbing and creating blisters on your feet, these devices can certainly help make those just big enough so that they won’t rub your feet anymore. Here are a few more facts to bear in mind.
It’s best to keep in mind the fact that not all materials are meant to be stretched. You can easily ruin a perfectly good pair by trying to make them bigger. They even make different solutions for different types. So make sure you know what you are buying before you buy and that they will actually work on the pair that you want them to work on.
A good rule of thumb to go by is that if they are made from natural materials like leather or suede, they can easily be stretched… to a certain degree. If you have out grown yours by a full size or two, don’t waste your money, you are likely going to need to buy a new pair instead.
Stretching can help make your old footwear just a little bit bigger. It is not going to make your them become an entirely new size. They work great to relieve pain if they are just barely rubbing your feet, you’ve already grown to your adult maximum size, and just need yours to be a little bit bigger or wider.
