How to Stretch Out Tight Shoes, Brighton, New York

So you bought a brand-new pair of shoes, only to get them home and realize they’re a bit snug. You don’t want to get blisters or numb toes, but you also know the next size up will be just a bit too big. Luckily, there are ways to stretch out shoes. Here, the team at Sofia Shoe Repair Service in Rochester, NY, lists a few ways to make your footwear more comfortable.

3 Ways to Stretch Tight Shoes

1. Wear Them Around

If your shoes are tight but not too uncomfortable, wear them around the house when you are at home. It may take a few days for the shoes to adjust, but this method ensures they are completely molded to your feet.

2. Use Heat

shoesIf you are stretching a pair of leather shoes but don’t have a few days, use the thick socks and blow dryer method. Put on the thickest socks you own, and squeeze your feet into your shoes. Heat the tight area with a hair dryer while bending your feet back and forth as much as you can for 20 to 30 seconds. Remove the shoes and let them cool. Then, try them on with your normal socks to see how much they stretched. Repeat until you are satisfied.

3. Hire a Professional

A shoe repair service can stretch your shoes using machines that apply gentle pressure and heat at the same time. Though it is the more expensive option, it is also the easiest and most precise method and can be done in as little as 24 hours.

To have your too-tight shoes stretched to perfection or for any other shoe repair services, visit Sofia Shoe Repair Service in Rochester, NY. For more information, visit their website or give them a call at (585) 708-7889.
