How To Stretch Leather Boots
Love Your Boots!
My name is Brian. I’m a firefighter of 17 years. I’m here to talk to you a little bit about our boots. One of the biggest complaints I hear is: I spent $400 on this extremely popular shoe, and it kills my feet! Well, it’s true, because I’ve made that mistake, as well.
I go on forest fires in the summer time. I’m gone for a month at a time, and I have to wear those heavy, leather, fire-resistant boots that just kill your feet, and at the end of the day, you just want something comfortable. Some of you office professionals out there that want to come home and get out of your dress shoes, and put on something comfortable so you can go for a walk, or walk your dog, or go work in your garden, maybe. We’ve got them. This is it right here, the Original S.W.A.T. Boot. Lace them up once, and zip them on and off the rest of the time. They’re extremely comfortable. They’re durable, and they have a warranty like no other.
What I tell people sometimes is when they buy boots, and I’ll do this for people that bought boots from somewhere else, and made that tragic mistake spending that big money on silly shoes, there’s ways that you can make these shoes fit comfortable, and you don’t have to take them to a cobbler, or boot store, or something like that to have them stretched, you can do it with just any broom stick handle, shovel handle, or anything like that you have at home. If the boot is hurting you on the outside or your foot, or near the ball of your foot, it’s very easy to stretch. You just simply take the boot, and stick the stick on the inside of the boot, put the end of the stick right where you’re having the most trouble, or where it is bothering you the most, and grab the toe of the boot and pull. All you’re doing is just basically what you’re doing when you break in a shoe, you just wear it, and stretch it out. This way you can do it without having to go through the pain, and agony of the process. You just stretch that boot out a little bit–both sides if you have to. You can see the leather kind of turning colors a little bit, that means it’s stretching–that’s great. Sometimes you have to do it 2 or 3 times, but by the time you do that, your feet don’t have blisters, you’re not miserable, and you’re not ready to throw your $100, $200, $300 shoes in the trash!
You can do this technique with any shoe that you buy, whether it be tennis shoes, boots, even you gals with high heels can even do that. Same goes with our boots that we sell, which is the Original S.W.A.T. If they’re a little tight when you get them, All you do is just put that broom stick handle inside and pull. You don’t have to pull them much, you don’t have to use your big muscles, just tug on them a little bit. Both sides if you have to.
Bam! You just broke your shoe in, and you didn’t have to kill your feet in the process!
