I have not tried that method, although I’m totally interested in know if it works!!! I have a pair of shoes that I bought a TAD too small. I thought I tried everything to stretch them.

Are they leather? I know you can buy leather shoe strech … stuff. I don’t know how it works, but you rub it on and it’s supposed to loosen the leather. I don’t feel like it worked on my shoes, but maybe I was doing it wrong.

I don’t know where you bought your shoes, but you can also take them to the store to get them stretched.  I bought mine from Saks, they were a bit small, so I took them and they stretched them for me.  You can also buy inserts that stretch them gradually.  Or I’ve also worn thick socks with leather shoes to stretch them out.  That way they aren’t rubbing against your feet, and you have a buffer.

That’s the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard.

Water freezing will expand in the direction of least resistence… i.e., out of the top of the shoe.  So, unless you have something solid to put in the shoe to stretch it out, suck it up and keep wearing them.

@TamiN: you could have found a nicer way to tell her that, just sayin . . 

 

@Soon to be Mrs M: Try the shoe stretchers that you can buy, also @NauticalBride2011: had a good suggestion of taking it to the store and having them stretch the shoes out for you.

You have quite a bit of time… try wearing them to sleep with socks on… even if you’re just going to take a nap.  Looks silly, but it works if you do it enough.

@ktisthatbees:  I certainly wasn’t trying to be rude.  As women, we all know how much breaking in new shoes can be a PITA… and yes, sometimes you do just have to suck it up.

Personally, I had that same issue, and I took it to a shoe repair shop and they stretched it out for $5…
