How to enlarge shoes that are slightly on the small side

It may have happened several times that you brought a pair of shoes home which you had tried on in the store, and they seemed as if they had shrunk on the way home. Maybe your feet had swollen in the meantime, but you also may have bought shoes which were slightly on the small side.


Forget about the worst solution – don’t throw the shoes out. Here’s a simple and efficient trick for slightly enlarging them.

Take two hermetically closing plastic bags, fill them with water and place them into the shoes. Then place the shoes into the freezer to have the water freeze in the bags. You can leave the shoes in the freezer overnight if you wish.

Then take the shoes out and try them on. Are they the right size now?
