/ Stretching new rock shoes, what works?
Outdoors shops sometimes have stretching devices they can do it for you, the way we do it is drop the shoes in hot water, inside a bag, with the device inside and let them cool. Might be worth ringing around your local shops. One of our customers recently had taken a cast of his daughters foot, cut it in half and put a thread inside it so it could be wound apart and basically did what we would do. Which worked if you've got the time and skills to do it!
Thanks for that Jack! Think I might nip into Tiso's with them, and see if they can do that.
Depending on what the material Is and where you need them stretching, I've found soaking them in water for a while and then wearing them for as long as you can stand, can help stretch them. You have to dry them slowly so they don't shrink back
Xplorer and Stonemaster have got it right. Get them wet and wear them around the house for a bit. Be careful not to overdo it or there'll stretch to much.
