Shoe Instep Stretcher and Vamp Raiser
Very functional ... does the job.
Very happy with the purchase - this stretcher and a bit of diluted rubbing alcohol rescued a new pair of cowboy boots that I originally couldn't get off without help. And they were among the least expensive wood and stainless instep stretchers I could find, and I got them in a few days on basic shipping!
Bought this to stretch the instep on a new pair of Doc Martin Slip-on shoes. The shoes are pretty solid with this the customary yellow stitching. They were fine when on but a little tight sliding the foot into. Used the Instep Raiser for 4 days on each shoe and it sorted the issue out. Kept checking each day so as not to over-do the stretching and thus a "Sloppy" fit shoe. Just a 1mm or so can make a world of difference. Quite pleased with the result as Doc Martins are not a cheap shoe!!
Little disapointed that your product is made in China.After stretching for 12hours as you recomend no noticeable results on my leather shoes.It took me one week to stretch...
This is the second Instep Stretcher that I have purchased. I have a high instep and often have trouble with slip-ons. I had been alternately using my original stretcher with the left then the right. Now a favorite pair has begun to give me trouble and I am needing to work on both simultaneously. I have several pair that are giving me trouble that had not been a problem. I like leaving both side, engaged while in the closet. These are lifesavers. I heartily recommend them.
