If shoes are tight, get a bottle of body spray from the dollar store, and saturate the area of the shoe that is tight inside and out, then wear the shoes until they are dry. Repeat if needed. This works on smooth leather and fake leather shoes. It also works on suede shoes, but may change the color or texture. You can also use alcohol, but the bath spray smells better. I have a hammer toe on one foot, and this works well for me. I spray the area over the toe, and shoes don't rub on it. Hope this is helpful to you.

Put a bread bag inside the shoe, push it up into the toes and heel, then put the excess bag over the edges of the shoe. Fill the bag with water and put into the freezer for 24 hours. This should stretch the shoes enough to be wearable. I have done this and it does work.

This tip really works!! Some shoes and boots are tight on the sides of my feet. Put on a couple of pairs of heavy socks, so you can get your foot into the shoes or boots, they will be extremely tight. Use a blow dryer, I use the high setting. Blow dry the shoes/boots where they are hurting your feet.


I do it several minutes for each shoe. When finished, leave the shoes/boots on for about 5-10 minutes, or until they are no longer hot. Take off the socks and put on the socks you want to wear. Put the shoes/boots on, you will be AMAZED at how great they feel, no pain!!
