Shrinking Leather Boots

I would like to know if anyone knows how to shrink leather boots?



Shrinking Leather Boots

Have you thought of just wearing thicker socks? They take up a lot of extra room. Try that and see if that helps.

Shrinking Leather Boots

Soak them down from the inside with white vinegar and leave them somewhere quite WARM to dry. The vinegar makes the leather pliable, but it's the heat that shrinks them. Also, ill-fitting shoes can be "broken in" quickly by walking around in them for about 15-20 minutes wearing vinegar-soaked socks (or until they feel comfortable). Leave them to dry a COOL place afterwards to prevent shrinkage. The vinegar smell will disappear as soon as the shoes are dry and the vinegar has the added benefit of removing odour and disinfecting too. We were quite poor when I was a kid and when we were on the brink of outgrowing our shoes, my mom made us walk in them with vinegar socks for a bit and the shoes would fit for a little while longer before we needed new ones. Hand-me-downs that were too big got the shrinking method. (07/21/2006)
