Hi All firstly apologies to Lee cause I never know where I should post a new topic.

 

My mates mum has gone abnd bought a pair of orrible patent leather shoes. She has asked if I can stretch them. I can always remember being told not to sretch patent so I told her no sorry cant cause thats what I have always been told.

 

does anyone know any different?

 

Cheers

The advice given by Jay is a bit Fishy so here is the real solution, dont put them in a Fish Tank or you may find a little Tinca in them.

 

There are 2 kinds of Patent Klazy, 1 is Linseed Oil based (the old type) and the other is synthetic, a sort of plastic.

As for stretching, as long as the shoes are quite new there wont be an immediate problem with the Linseed oil type but as this is a real leather the leather will stretch a bit more prematurely than the customer would have wanted. This means that the surface coating can come away sooner rather than later. a proccess known as delamination.

 

As for the plastic newer type that we now see in the shops, these should be treated just like any other plastic shoe that comes in for stretching as you will not get the delamination with this type.

 

Hope this answers your question.
