At the time of purchase shoes We must consider different factors, such as the use we are going to give it, the material it will be made of and, logically, the size. In the latter is where we fail the most, because the size can vary a few millimeters depending on the shoe’s construction. And that’s when he money is lost, unless we resort to some homemade technique to widen shoes.
We know that there is nothing more frustrating than spending money in something that we have bought and that later we cannot use.

Therefore, it is transcendental to stop using it or widen it.
Among the home tricks for widen shoes, our grandmothers have taught us that the hair dryer can be effective. It’s a trick that works, but not always. The heat of the dryer only has an effect if the shoes They are leather or suede. For other materials there are much more effective products.
Another of the tricks that are often used to widen shoes and not lose money giving them away or leaving them forgotten in the cupboard is using the refrigerator freezer. For this you must fill a bag with water, put it in the shoe and place it in the freezer for a few hours. We can try this remedy for sports, tennis or canvas shoes. However, if we use it for more delicate fabrics, we run the risk of irreparably ruining them.
So you can widen shoes with a cooking ingredient
The most effective trick for widen shoes is using a potato. For this we must choose one, remove the skin, dry it and put it inside the shoes.
