    Hi all,

    I have started to break my shoes in by wearing them around house when cleaning but suddenly I thought how long should I be breaking them in? As in each time you wore your shoes how long each session did you wear them?

    Wear them around for half an hour or so a couple times to see if there's any niggles, and on all different flooring to check you can walk on shiny surfaces etc! Also if they aren't plastic or patent if you hairdryer them to warm them whilst you're wearing them then they'll stretch a little round your feet as you wear them

    I'm sure I read about wearing thick socks an dude hairdryer for 1/2 hr but I might wear mine for an hour a night for a few days leave it and see how they feel and play it by each day if you think they are comfy the wave them x

    I used to wear mine around the house with a pair of socks on, then put them into the box and stuffed bubble wrap into them to help keep them stretched.

    A great thing to do is put a big potato in the shoe/feet part, push it in and leave overnight, it will slightly expand the shoe so wont feel tight :)

    There is something you can do with ice to slightly stretch shoes.. I can't remember exactly what it is though. Might be worth a g00gle :)

    Ha midget gem I fear tripping down the aisle as I always fall over in flats let alone any sort of heel lol

    Flossie I have seen that somewhere too but think it not suitable for material on my shoes :)
