Thank you for your feedback.
I received the stretcher in a fair amount of time, and was very happy with the quality of the stretcher.
They need to make a hinge plate that is twice as thick and made of solid stainless steel so it does not happen again.
This stretcher worked really well to make both pairs of shoes fit comfortably.

    I bought this stretcher on the assumption that I would never have to buy another. That seems not to be the case. Superficially, it feels like a professional-quality piece. Large, heavy, smooth wood, big metal parts. Only the small plastic bunion attachments seem cheap and sparse in number.

    I used this unit to stretch two pairs of men's dress shoes, both size 12. The first pair was inexpensive, around $50, with rubber soles, and fit modestly well. The second pair was $125, very stiff, leather soled, and much higher quality, though perhaps a half-size too small. I drenched the inside and outside of both sets of shoes with rubbing alcohol before employing this shoe stretcher on each shoe for two days. Each time, I tightened the stretcher until it would no longer turn. The force to achieve this did not feel unreasonable and required no awkward positions or histrionics.

    The result: the cheap shoes stretched a half-size in width. Where my pinkie toes would go numb before, they no longer do if I wear thin dress socks. The expensive shoes stretched very little, if at all. They were tight. They are tight. Realistically, further stretching would require much more force for much longer.

    I could deal with that if the stretcher was reusable, but the threading of the main screw has begun to curl. The screw no longer threads smoothly. Tightening it for another use would probably ruin it. For what it cost to have this single wooden foot shipped, that's just not reasonable. I've sent a message to the vendor for a refund or replacement. I'll update this with their response.


    I've added back one star for customer service.

    Size: Women's Large (US 9.5 - 12) Verified Purchase
    I broke my tibia/fibula at my right ankle a few years ago. Now, that foot is a bit larger than my left. For shoes that fit like a glove on my left foot, they're a bit too small on my right foot. OR I recently made the mistake of buying AA shoes.

    I've used the shoe stretcher three times, and it hasn't broken! Other ones usually broke after two uses.

    Now, this is going to sound strange, but it really helps if you *read the directions*. That sounds like a no-brainer, but I figured that you insert in shoe and twist, right?

    First of all, you need to pretreat it. Spray with a shoe stretcher spray (I had some left over from when I had to stretch a boot) or spray/rub generously with isopropyl alcohol. The isopropyl what is in the little bottle of shoe stretcher spray, which costs $5. If you run out of shoe stretcher spray, you can fill the bottle with isopropyl alcohol. Be sure to use 70%; 90% can be flammable.

    So you pre-treat it, and place shoe in front of space heater/on heat register for about half an hour. The heat makes the leather more pliable and helps stretch leather/suede. Next, spray liberally with more alcohol inside/outside shoe, insert shoe stretcher, twist the mechanism at the end clockwise to stretch the shoe wider, and twist the disk counter-clockwise to stretch the heel.

    Leave there for 48 hours, occasionally spraying with the alcohol.

    When removing the stretcher, you have to alternately twist the handle at the end and the disk. Twist the handle counter-clockwise; the disk, clockwise. You don't just twist the handle at the end counter-clockwise and the shoe falls off. You have to play with the disk a bit, tightening and loosening, as you unwind the handle at the end.

    Size: Men's Large (US 11.5 - 13.5) Verified Purchase
    High quality shoe stretcher that's does the job and has lasted for many uses over several months time so far.

    First of all, be aware that this offer is for ONLY ONE stretcher. I bought (2) of them so I can simultaneously stretch a pair of shoes, instead of stretching them one at a time. So, just be aware that if you purchase just one it could take 4 days or more to stretch one pair of shoes.

    As to functionality, they've worked great for me thus far. I'm a size 13, probably between D and E and very often have to stretch my D shoes for extra width. I've stretched soft leather as well as stiff leather. I usually leave the stretchers on a minimum of 48 hours in a humid environment and they haven't failed me yet.

    As to build quality, they are definitely on the high end as far as compared to other alternatives.

    I would offer a couple tips:
    Many people talk about applying an alcohol based solution prior to using stretchers, I'm personally not comfortable applying any liquid to my shoes as I am concerned it might somehow stain them (like perhaps a water stain). I'm going to try that solution on a pair of shoes that are ready for the trash someday. But in the meantime, my solution has been to put a humidifier in the bathroom, which is generally more humid than the rest of the house anyway and leave the shoes in the stretcher in that humid environment for a couple of days. It's worked for me.

    Another thing I would point out is that the sizing on these may be on the small side. As mentioned, I wear a size 13 and thus purchased the 11.5-13.5 (Men's Large). This size really seems to max out on some of my size 13 shoes.
