In the pictures on the left i show some amazing glittery boots i got for Christmas as a gift from my boyfriends mother, I love these shoes they are my size but they were a bit tight around the top. I did not want to return them since i also was in Houston, TX so i set off to the interwebs and i did not believe my eyes there was something on show stretching at home. (You could take them to the shoe man and get them sized but this ways way easier)
Here is the Tutorial How To Stretch Out Your Shoes
The only thing i would recommend is double bag it! and only leave them over night and do not put them directly under the sun since it might decolorize the show AND do not do it the day of this is a 24 hr process.
I tried it with my burlesque shoes first for the sake of a show, My boyfriend looked at me like why are you doing this? i said testing out theory. left them over night then put them out in the heat and then tried them on and HOLY SHOES BATMAN they fit just right! So the boots were next, Keep in mind this only work on shoes that are not leather it ruins the the shoe all together so please keep it to the shoes you have that are non leather shoes.
Lets share a secret about science! When you are putting the bag in the show the water is a liquid, when in the freezer the water due to the change of temperature starts turning SLOWLY into a solid that is also expanding SLOWLY, Then when it finally becomes solid all the way the show has been stretched now you have to let it become liquid again slowly as you wait for the shoe to unfreeze!
(Remove the bags and clean the shoe, The bags can be reuse for future shoe projects and the water can go off to plants)
So there you have it... now go forth and s
