Use Alcohol to Break In Shoes

If you have leather shoes that are a bit tight, you can "break them in" by spraying them inside and out on the tight spots with alcohol (I use cheap cologne). Wear them around and repeating applications of the alcohol until the tight spots have stretched. I have also used this method on the tight tops of the box toes of brand new leather sneakers.
