Happy Feet: The 6 Best Ways To Stretch Out Your Shoes

* Break in your shoes before you wear them to make them more comfortable
* Stretch out shoes that are just a little too tight
* Relieve pain caused by corns, calluses, bunions and other foot ailments

To get through each day, you simply have to put one foot in front of the other. But, you can’t do that if your shoes are too tight. Maybe you bought a size too small. Maybe you just need to break them in before they break your feet. Maybe you just want your shoes to be a lot more comfortable. Either way, these 6 shoe stretchers will get your shoes in shape and give your feet much needed relief.
