I got these leather brogues from Zara almost 5 years ago, but I've only worn them twice. Why?

Because they hurt so much, one time when I actually manage to check my ankle in the bathroom the skin has already peeled off and I was bleeding...

So, I found a remedy and here's what I want to share with you today - with a video tutorial.


 Problem to be solved

1. Leather too tight in the front
2. Back is too stiff it rubs against my ankle when I walk, and peels my skin

The best way is to invest on a set of shoe stretcher or shoe tree at home, they don't cost much but they prove to be super handy and you can use them on EVERY SINGLE PAIR of shoes you own :) how tempting does that sound huh! (I'll share a link at the end of the post for where to buy them)

STEP 1 - Slip the shoe stretcher into the shoe, as deep as you can push


STEP 2 - Make sure the black ankle stretch is inside the shoe as well



STEP 3 - (see video below) Twist the black handle or knob so it pushes all the way, to lengthen the shoe


STEP 4 - (see video below) Twist the metal handle or hook to widen the toe area



STEP 5 - Let is sit for a night or so, depending on how soft you want them to be. You could also leave the shoe tree in for 2-3 days. Done! 

It works exactly the same if you have a pair of high heels, but make sure you buy the correct type of shoe stretcher as high heels have a different arch.


Here's another tip for you: 

I bought ONE PAIR of high heel stretchers to make sure I can apply them to the shoes at the same time, but only ONE UNIT of flat shoe stretcher to save cost $$$

Here's my OOTD wearing the silver brogues without worrying about hurting my ankles :)
