Best Way to Stretch Leather Shoes?

Answer

One tried and true way to stretch leather shoes is the ice method. Fill a sturdy plastic bag three-fourths of the way full with water, and seal the top securely to avoid leaks. Place the bag of water into the shoe you want to stretch, and make sure the bag takes up excess space in the area where the shoe is too tight. Place the shoe in the freezer, and allow the water to freeze completely and stretch the material before removal. As the water freezes it will naturally expand and stretch the leather. Although this method does not result in a custom fit, it will stretch the material if the bag expands the interior of the shoe in the right locations.
