Instructions

  1. 1

    Spray the shoes with shoe-stretch aerosol. You can also apply a shoe stretch liquid to shoes. These products help loosen the material of the shoe.

  2. 2

    Place the shoe stretcher in your shoe as far as you can. Turn the handle on the shoe stretcher until it feels tight.

  3. 3

    Turn the shoe stretcher three more times. Once you've done that, keep the shoe stretcher in the shoe overnight and then remove it from the shoe.
