Can shoe trees stretch out shoes?

Can shoe trees stretch out shoes?  The answer is, not really.  Shoe trees are designed to smooth out the lining of your shoes and to smooth out creases.

Smoothing…not stretching.

If you are looking for a way to get that shoe to fit better, you need to invest in a shoe stretcher.

Using a shoe stretcher is an easy and effective way to custom fit your shoes to your feet.

Shoe stretchers are made from hard wood species, birch, maple etc… and have a strong metal rod that is slowly turned to put added pressure on your shoe.  This slow pressure stretches the leather of your shoe and makes it more comfortable.  Stretchers come with inserts that can be placed in various spots on the toe form for specific spot stretching.

One stretcher works for right and left shoes.
