A couple of weeks ago I blogged about all the great shoes I had bought this fall and how I love them because they are so comfy.. that was until I had to stand 10 hours in them.
By the end of the day my feet seemed to have expanded and my new brown pumps felt super narrow. Did I buy the wrong size?
My comfy size 8’s (have worn size 8 all my life) suddenly felt like a size 6! I guess the widening feet syndrome is all part of aging. Anyway, what was I to do?..until a friend suggested a shoe stretcher.
Have you ever heard of one?
It’s a wooden form that fit into your shoe overnight. You crank it open like a window and it expands, thus also stretching your shoe width wise. ( doesn’t affect length).
There’s even a little attachment you can screw onto the form to make room for your bunions! I was skeptical, but bought one at the shoemaker for $25.99 ( works in both left and right shoe). After two cranks of the turner and 12 hours later, my shoe was definitely wider.
I love this thing! Now I’m working on the other foot.
