How long does it take to stretch shoes with a shoe stretcher?
A common question is “How long do you leave a shoe stretcher in?” We recommend leaving the shoe stretcher in your shoe for at least 6 to 8 hours. Anything less will not give sufficient time for the material to set in its new stretched form. Slip on thick socks – two pairs if you can manage it – and put on your shoes.

Does leather stretch when wet?
