Stretching shoes and women’s dress boots is a valuable and often very
effective method for relieving foot pain. You can stretch the length,
width or create extra room for bunions or pinched toes. We often
recommend stretching shoes in specific areas to relieve pressure on
hammertoes, corns, bone spurs and other enlarged areas of the
foot. In addition, if the shoe simply feels too tight, we recommend the
entire toebox of the shoe be stretched. Shoe stretching instructions for
both techniques, and special instructions for women’s boots are listed
You can either stretch a shoe yourself or take it to a shoe repair shop. You can often save yourself some money by stretching it yourself. Here are instructions on the best methods for stretching shoes at home. In addition, we have reviewed shoe stretchers and the best shoe stretchers are listed below.

Stretching Tight Women’s Boots
Women’s boots require a special stretcher with an extra long handle. This unique stretcher has a hinged shaft that follows the contours of a boot so that you can stretch the width of the boot without causing any damage to the shaft or collar.
