There is a product called, "Shoe Stretch" made by Adcor Products Inc. The cost is about $3.00. It is spayed inside and outside the shoe and allows the shoe to stretch. I find it very useful because I have a hammer toe on one foot, and that shoe tends to rub, and make it sore. I have purchased this product in Famous Footwear and Target. It works on leather and man made shoes. Spray suede shoes on the inside only. (04/25/2005)
Try taking a cotton ball and putting some rubbing alcohol on it. Then rub the cotton ball with the alcohol on the inside of the shoe.
I've got one of the wooden shoe stretchers that I just put it on and let it sit until it dries. It's in the shape of a foot and you either turn the arm clockwise or counter clockwise to control the width you want it to be. It also comes with some plastic inserts that you can put into the wooden shoe stretcher for bunions, corns, etc. You can get them at Nordstrom's and a lot of other places. If you have this problem it might be worth the investment. Not sure of the price but really not bad and worth it's weight in gold when you think of how bad feet can hurt with shoes that don't fit right.. :) (04/25/2005)
There is a shoe stretch at Walmart also, in a little spray bottle. (04/25/2005)
I simply pour rubbing alcohol all over the inside of the new leather shoes or boots, then put them on with the socks you plan to wear with them. Don't take them off until they are completely dry. This will take all day, so it's good to start this in the morning, so you can wear your shoes all day & evening if necessary. If you do this in the summer, you will enjoy the cool feet. When dry, your leather shoes or boots will be conformed to the shape of your shoe. Never go on a long walk or hike without preparing your shoes or boots like this and you will have no problems with your feet, as a result. (07/16/2005)
