Keep your feet happy with quality boot stretchers
Don't kick tight or uncomfortable boots out of your life when you could use a professional boot stretcher to keep them in shape and stretch out the length or width as required. Your boots are made for walking, and that's just what they'll do if you look after them on a regular basis. This type of clothing and shoe care product can help ease the pain caused by poor-fitting footwear.
A standard adjustable unisex boot stretcher is made with durable plastic, metal and wooden parts. It includes one shoe stretching piece that fits both men's and women's left or right shoes and boots of various sizes. You can also buy boot stretchers specifically designed for either men's or women's boots.
How to use a boot stretcher
Insert the removable plugs into the key positions where pressure relief is needed, then insert the adjustable boot and shoe stretcher into your footwear. To stretch the length, turn the round handle in a clockwise direction, and to stretch the width turn the metal crank handle in a clockwise direction. Stop when you see surface pressure on the shoe, and allow the shoe stretcher to hold this position for at least 24 hours to achieve a stretch of between 5mm and 10mm.
A boot stand holder permanently maintains the natural stretched shape of your boots by preventing them from falling into positions that can distress, wrinkle and crack the leather over time.
You might also consider buying inflatable boot shapers for ongoing upright boot support.
