                        You simply hope that the more you wear the new pair of shoes, the more you can break in them? Try a quicker method!

                        break in shoes

                          Put on a thick pair of socks and then put your shoes on. Use a hairdryer to aim at your shoes and make the tight spots as the focus while wiggling your toes around. Don’t remove your shoes immediately but wait them to cool down. Repeat the whole process until you feel that the shoes’ stretched out. Then you can remove the socks and dah-dah, the shoes fit you more now!
