Before you begin
Make sure the toe block is in its closed default position. Turn the widening handle counterclockwise to close the toe block.
The heel block must be as close to the toe block as possible. Turn the lengthening wheel clockwise to move the heel block fully forward.
This shoe stretcher comes with 3 spot stretching plugs for corns, bunions and other pressure points. If needed, insert the plugs into the corresponding plug slots on the toe block prior to stretching.
Apply shoe stretch spray to both the inside and outside of your shoe to relax the material for stretching.
Insert the toe block into the forepart of your shoe. Ensure that the heel block is also within the shoe.
To lengthen the shoe, turn the lengthening wheel counterclockwise to move the heel block towards the back of the shoe. Once firmly snug in the shoe, turn one or two more times for a proper stretch.
To widen the shoe, turn the widening handle clockwise to expand the toe block. Once firmly inside, turn two to three more times for a proper stretch.
Once your desired length and width settings are set, leave the stretcher in your shoe for at least 24 hours.
To remove the stretcher, turn the lengthening wheel clockwise and widening handle counterclockwise to fully retract each block. Pull out slowly.
Set the shoe stretcher to its closed default setting (turn counterclockwise) and insert it into the shoe. Determine the position of the plastic plugs (s) and attach them. (Remove the shoe straightener, attach plastic buttons and insert again). Gently and carefully turn the lengthening wheel clockwise, the shoe stretcher begins to open slowly. Overstretching of the leather should be avoided in any case.
We recommend you spray the identified areas on the shoes with a leather stretch spray. The leather softens and stretches better. It is best to spray inside and outside the spot to get the best possible stretching.
Leave the shoe stretcher in the shoes for 24 hours and put the shoe stretcher back in the basic default position to remove it. Try on your shoes to check if the process has to be repeated perhaps eventually with a slightly wider open position. Proceed as with the first stretch. Several repetitions are more advisable than too much stretching at once. To stretch the shoes in length, turn the lengthening wheel counterclockwise. To remove the shoe straightener from the shoe, turn the wheel counterclockwise to the starting position.
