#HauteHack: How To Stretch Out Tight Leather Shoes

By  | 

Ever stepped into a pair of shoes only to realise that they’re extremely uncomfortable? Let’s be honest, no matter how much you love your shoes, you’re never going to wear them though the pain. And we know it’s a heartbreaking deal to trash shoes because, well… these are shoes we’re talking about. If you like a pair, you find ways to mend the trouble they cause, whether it’s fixing scuff marks from leather shoes or loosening out shoes that are way too tight.

I am a believer in Pinterest hacks because I’ve tried some of the style hacks I’ve come across on the site and have hardly ever been disappointed by the results. Recently, I stumbled upon this super easy trick to loosen up tight leather shoes, and seriously, this is one to try.

In case your leather shoes are given you too much trouble, here’s what you need to do. First, put on a thick pair of socks. Then slip your feet into the pair of shoes that need to be loosened (the socks only help you stuff your shoes to the maximum). Post this, you need to turn on your blow dryer and blast the hot air over areas of the shoe that feel tight. Remember to flex your feet in the shoe as you blow dry. Keep doing this for about 20-30 seconds and then allow the shoes to cool. When you take off your socks and slip into them again, they will feel stretched enough to be comfortable. Repeat the process if you need to loosen them up a little more.
