Topic - Help! Rock shoe stretching?

NottsRich on 06 Sep 2012
I have a pair of Edelrid Reptiles and they're great. Well, one is, the other shoe is about quarter of a size too small which ends up compressing my big toe and becoming painful after a few minutes. It still actually hurts now after climbing last night.

I've used them for in total about 20 hours (8-10 weeks, 2/3hrs a week) and they've eased a bit, but I just need a tiny bit more room out of them... Does anyone have any tips? I've heard anything from microwaves, to hot showers, to steaming them over a kettle. Can anyone recommend anything that works?

Worst case is I cut my losses and admit that buying the last pair in the shop for 40 was a bad idea. It was a good bargain at the time!

Thanks!
