How To Break In Your Shoes

1 Soak Them

If your shoes are made of leather, spray the inside with a combination of rubbing alcohol and water. Wear them for about 20 to 30 minutes. This allows the shoes to mould to your natural foot shape.

2 Ice Them

To gradually expand and widen your shoes, fill them with bags of water and place them in the freezer overnight. Make sure the bags won’t leak.

3 Wear Them In

Wear thick socks then wear your shoes in the house while doing chores or just lazying around. This way you’ll stretch the shoes, they will gradually mould to your feet, and you avoid blisters.

4 Heat Them Up

Set your blow-dryer on a fairly high temperature and blow-dry in and around your shoes. The heat will help them expand. Do this for a few minutes and you’ll see it really helps with leather shoes but be careful with flammable fabrics.

5 Ease Into Them

Instead of wearing your shoes for the whole day and risk getting blisters, wear them for shorter periods of time. So don’t wear them to work, put them on for your dinner date which is a few hours vs a whole day. Be patient and soon you’ll be able to run in them!
