    Default How can I stretch my shoes wider?

    Hello everyone!

    How can you widen horse leather shoes that are too narrow? I've heard of this technique, however, it sounds too hardcore haha Is it still better to take them to cobbler's?

    How to Shrink Leather Boots

    FILL WATER BUCKET. Fill a large vessel with lukewarm water.
    SUBMERGE BOOTS. Completely submerge the boots in water.
    ALLOW BOOTS TO SOAK. Leave the boots in the water for approximately one hour to ensure that they are completely saturated.
    SOAK SOCKS.
    PUT ON WET SOCKS AND BOOTS.
    WEAR UNTIL DRY.

    Just take them to a trusted cobbler. They do this for a living.

    Yes, it works pretty good. I got a pair stretched up to a full size bigger.
