How to Use the FootFitter Boot Stretcher

A boot stretcher widens boots to restore comfort while reducing the break-in period of new boots.

Tools needed:

Step 1

Apply shoe stretch spray to the inside of your boot to relax the material for stretching. You can also wipe the inside of the boot with a cloth saturated with shoe stretch spray.

Step 2

If needed, insert the plugs into the corresponding plug slots on the toe block prior to stretching.

Step 3

Insert the toe block into the toe box of your boot. Make sure to wedge it in far enough that the toe block touches the end of the toe box.

Step 4

To widen the boot, turn the widening handle clockwise to expand the toe block. Once snug, turn 2 to 3 more times for a proper stretch.

Step 5

Once your desired width settings are set, leave the stretcher in your boot for at least 6 to 8 hours.

Step 6

To remove the stretcher, turn the widening handle counterclockwise to fully retract the block. Pull out slowly.
