is it possible to shrink shoes?
bought a pair a size too big, and they are white, so they look fucking huge
what you want to do:
remove laces and set washing machine to tumble for half an hour
put only the shoes in the washing machine
after that, put shoes in dryer for an hour at medium heat i think
my stans were too big but they fit perfect now
i dont know what to tell you
i got these stans for my birthday a couple months back, and they were a half size too big, but my mom bought them on clearance with no returns so i figured i would try it, and it worked
Fill a tall pot with water, bring the water to a boil. Once boiling, add salt, pepper, and bay leaves to the water and let it come down to a simmer. Grab your shoes and put them in the pot, making sure they are fully submerged. After resting at a simmer for 10-15 minutes, strain the broth you made and place the shoes on a baking sheet. Ok, this is where it gets difficult: with the opening facing up, fill the shoes with the broth to as high as you can without it spilling out. Be really careful with this; you're going to want to put the shoes in the oven at 450 Farenheit for 15-20 minutes until the water has mostly evaporated.
That only works with like nylon material you are going to uncondition the leather that way really the only thing op can do is soak them in water and put them in the microwave. If you have shoe trees that are set to your size put them in during the microwave part so they don't over shrink. Which could happen but unlikely
