    Stretching Leather Trainers

    What is the best way to stretch leather trainers?

    Have worn them for a few days so unable to take them back but still a bit tight, especially on the heal.

    Any ideas?

    even my heal?

    what with though? scissors or a knife? :w00t:

    very thin socks will help

    Try soaking the leather in warm/hot water to soften it up and then stuffing dry newspaper in them really tightly until you see the leather at full stretch, leave them for a day and take paper out.

    used to do this with football boots, you may need to do it a few times

    i have them stuffed with paper now but havn't soaked or wet the leather.

    will have to try :thumbsup:

    stop buying trainers the wrong size just cuz theyre cheap ;-)

    You could get someone with larger feet to wear them for a few days, like in their house etc obviously not outside. I used to do it for my son until his feet became bigger than mine.
