Most men have at some point purchased leather dress shoes that felt comfortable when trying them out at the store or in their home's living room, but as soon as they step out on to the street and spend a few hours walking in them, they start noticing areas around their feet that have turned red or tender due to the shoe being too tight in some areas.

We are aware that most men have a few pairs of shoes in their closet that they seldom wear due to their poor fit. Our bespoke shoe stretchers made using your exact foot shape and fitting preferences allows you to stretch the shoes that you already own so that they are given a second chance to serve the purpose they were originally made for.

Our bespoke stretchers are ideal to expand shoes that are too tight in the forefoot, big toe, and small toe areas. It can also help stretch your shoes around the instep area if they are loafers, but to a lesser degree if they have shoelaces. Our stretchers can help when the shoes are tight, but they rarely work when the shoes are flat out small due to the stretching limitations of leather.
