5 Ways to Stretch Shoes That Are Too Small

Have you ever bought a pair of shoes knowing they were too small for you, especially during Fashion Week season? They were cute and on sale and you just had to have them. But once you get them home, reality sets in. 

Well, problem solved. Here are five crafty ways to make your shoes bigger.


1. Wear them around the house while wearing a pair of thick socks. 

2. Apply heat to the shoes with a blow dryer while you are wearing thick socks. And bend your feet back and forth as much as you can. 

3. Fill a sealable plastic baggy with water half-way and place it inside each shoe up to the toes; then place shoes in the freezer for a few hours or overnight until they are completely frozen. Take shoes from the freezer and let thaw for about 20 minutes. As the water freezes, it will expand your shoes. Repeat the process if your shoes are still too snug. This tip, however, isn’t recommended for expensive shoes. 

4. Buy a shoe stretcher. You can get one for under $10 at Target. 

5. When all else fails, take your shoes to a professional shoe repair shop.
