Hi, I'm Nequan Peartree from Shoe Diva located in Wilmington, North Carolina, and we're going to talk about how to stretch shoes. There are several options that you can go to...gravitate towards when you're wanting to stretch your shoe. The first option would be, if you don't want to stretch the shoe yourself, you can take it to a cobbler, and they would have....be able to use a machine and stretch your shoe lengthwise as well as widthwise. And it would cost you, maybe, ten or fifteen bucks at the most. The second option you have is to stretch them yourself, using a shoe stretch solution. And you would just take that solution, put some in the inside of the shoe, and wear the shoe up to fifteen to thirty minutes, and those will also stretch your shoes, as well. The third option you have is to buy a shoe stretcher. And you can pick those up from any retail store like WalMart or Target. If you're wanting to, of course, stretch two shoes, you'd want to buy two shoe stretchers. And they...you would just place them in the inside of the shoe, and they would stretch your shoe. You'd have to leave it overnight. And the fourth option you have is to be...use alcohol. You dab a little bit of alcohol in the inside of the shoe. And you can do it two ways, you can either wear the shoe, or use a shoe stretcher. And those are four options that you can use to stretch your shoes.
