- THICK SOCKS AND HAND DRYER
Remember those funny looking socks you don’t want to dispose away, 😂 lol!! You can bring them to good use now. Put on your socks before wearing the shoes, turn the dryer and run it over the “tight” parts around the shoe.
NB: Your shoes should be of Natural material for this to work, heat tends to damage synthetic materials.
Once you feel the tight areas loosening up, turn off the dryer. Walk around in your shoes, while they cool off
2. TAKE IT SLOW
Before you throw those babies out for that party, start wearing them around the house.
How do I mean you ask? Wear your shoes around the house, daily, before the set date you intend to wear them. You can even wear them with a thick socks to speed up the breaking in process. Walk around, sit, dance (if you can).
3. USE A SHOE STRETCHER
Shoe stretcher work best for suede, leather and other natural materials. Synthetic materials can be stretched but may return back to their original size. Put the stretcher in your shoe, adjust the width, length and leave it overnight or more days. You might want to “test-run” the shoes before stepping out.
4. BRING A SPARE PAIR
If you bought those new shoes to wear the next day, or too lazy to follow the tips above, well.. this is for you 😝. My sister, just bring along a more comfortable shoes to change into later after you have taken pics and to avoid blisters. You can get some of Edenshoez
NB: The duration to break in new shoes is dependent on the nature and quality of the shoe material and the fit.
