I've been stretching my shoes for years. I wear a Size 5 or 5.5 and need a wide. Well, shoes do not come in a Wide width in that small of size. So, I've always stretched them out and purchased many stretchers. All are wooden btw.
Normally I have paid this much for one shoe stretcher, let alone two. So, this is a super deal. And, if you buy a shoe stretcher at a foot store, you'd really pay more. And, none came with their own bag so you can store them, and not lose all those little plug ins.
I use "Shoe Stretcher" spray first and then insert the stretcher overnight. This works great for women's shoes of all styles, especially helping to make it easier if you have bunions or wide feet. The last shoe stretcher I had lasted 6 years before I striped out the threads. And, I stretched out a lot of shoes with it.
I received the product promptly and was excited to use the shoe stretchers. First use and already broken, cheap plastic in areas that should be metal. Any amount of pressure to actually 'stretch' and the plastic gives way and breaks-
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Used one time and broken already
I have used these stretchers since the day i got them. They are well made, aside from the center screw section. both of them popped off the base on the first use but they still operate just fine. it takes a wee bit more patience to get them in place. the extra buttons for specific area stretching are fantastic. instead of having to stretch the entire toe area, you can be precise and stretch a small, uncomfortable area only. it makes the shoe fit so well and remain comfortable throughout the day. i have always had shoe stretchers but these make the process so much more exact. Wonderful purchase!
As I stated above one of the shoe stretchers arrived damaged, the black plastic wing nut that allows the stretcher to expand and stretch was in three pieces. I contacted Overstock.com via instant chat, the OS representative was very cordial and helpful. She understood my complain and worked or rectify the problem. I simply asked for replacement parts and I would repair the stretcher myself but Overstock.com send me a new set of shoe stretchers. This is not an expensive item, but well within the price range of what I've seen on line while doing my research.
The new set of shoe stretchers arrived a few days later all in tack. I used them and they worked great!
Thank you Overstock.com for great customer service and quick response.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Color was/is not an issue.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Interior of product is made of inferior plastic. Mine arrived damaged, plasatic wing nut was broken in several pieces on one stretcher
I ordered these shoe stretchers to stretch the width of my shoes just a little bit. They were a little awkward at first, but after getting the hang of them, I put them in a pair of flat leather shoes. I left them inserted in the shoes for approx. 4 days, and it seemed to work. I will need to try it again on a pair of leather sandals, that I intend to wear this summer. It will save me $X.XX for each pair of shoes that I can do myself, and I will pay for the stretchers with just 2 pair of shoes.
"what was the length of this shoe compared to what you expected" "what was the width of this shoe compared to what you expected" Seriously, someone needs to double check their web forms. THIS ISN'T A SHOE, OVERSTOCK.
This is my first pair of shoe stretchers, so I cant compare them to others. They work. You shove it into the toe of the show, and turn the plastic screw until the hell part is in the heel of the shoe, and you turn the metal L until it's as wide as you want, and then you leave it alone for a day or so. It's got little plastic nubs that go into holes in the wood part, I use one to make a little extra room for my little toe.
I did find that it left some sawdust like debris in the inside of my shoes, but that's an easy fix.
Once I tightened the stretcher into the shoe and left it overnight, I removed it from the shoe but it will not turn back to the original small size. On top of that, the shoe did not expand at all. The stretcher itself remains in the expanded position. It is stuck there. I will keep trying for now, but I may have to return it and try to find another stretcher.
They fit any size shoe. I could never get the part that stretches vertically to work. Horizontally works perfectly.lenniehd on Dec 19, 2013
Heel height does not effect these as they are used inside the shoes. They are awesome. To stretch vertically you need to use the round black knob to lengthen or shorten the position of the wooden heel piece.jackcan on Jan 15, 2014
