    Stretching shoes with ice?? *updated

    Advertisements
    does this really work? anyone ever tried it? Apparently, you can fill a zip-lock baggie with water, place it in the shoe, freeze it, and it will stretch the shoe (since water expands when it freezes). I dont see why it wouldnt work,...but before i go throwing four pairs new shoes in the freezer like a crazy woman, i wanted to see if anyone had tried it....TIA

    here's some reference/how-to: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qf5mJ7aR2t8

    Hmmm... I might give this a whirl. I have a pair of shoes where the left is perfect for me, but the right is just a big too snug.

    Interesting, I've never heard of that before. I'd be scared that they'd get stretched too much and then be loose on me. What kind of shoes are they?

    Have done it and yes, it works. DH was confused why my new boots were in the freezer though.

    It sounds like it may work, but before you throw some nce shoes in there use an old pair or pick up a cheap pair from a yard sale or goodwill. You'll have to let us know if this works

    they look like this: http://k4.stylefeeder.com/thumb/a0/2...b09e7c-200.jpg

    i tried on a larger size at the store, but they were too long and my heel kept slipping out as i walked...the pair i ended up buying fits perfect, except the toes are a little snug because the shoe is cut kinda narrow.

    Wow- I've never heard of that. I have two pairs of flats that are a little snug but I would be scared to try it. If you try it, let us know how it works out!

    Did it work? I have a few pairs I could use to do something like that too... my left foot is significantly bigger than my right and one of them always fits perfect while the other is off.
