Any tips on stretching a pair of shoes?

    As title says but they are high heeled sandles thought you brainy peeps might have some cunning ideas on stretching them wider till I'm drunk enough not to feel the pain any more

    Thanks in advance and also Mwah xx


    have heard that stuffing them tightly with wet newspaper and letting dry naturally is supposed to help..........cant say Ive tried it though.

    just found this tip

    Put a sealed bag of water in both of your shoes. Put your shoes in the freezer and let them sit overnight. The water in the bag will turn to ice and expand, therefore explanding your shoes!

    old wifes tale but it works

    That would be really kinky as they are sparkly black high heeled sandals...!!

    What about putting them in a vice???

    roll average pieces of paper tightley and keep forcing them into your shoe with blunt object until as tight as poss then leave a couple of days,this could mean stayng in if no more shoes to wear
