Designer Womans High Heels - Shoe trees / Toe Box stretcher


Recommended Posts

Good Day all,

LouboutinCobbler here, from England, United Kingdom.

I hope someone may be able to help me. I am trying to find a premium quality toe box stretcher for womans/ladies high heel shoes. This is mainly to stretch patent leather. These shoes have narrow toe boxes, and do require stretching for many people.

Could anyone recommend a high quality toe box stretcher, that will not crease or damage the outer material, nor deform the shoe.

I appreciate your assistance greatly. Thank you.

I am looking for a metal hand crack version, before investing in a machine.

I have been watching some videos, and clearly the metal ones are better for durability.

Any suggestions? and what kind of price should be realistic?

Send us a message, we should be able to help with a metal stretcher for women's shoes

I find it hard to believe that someone who states they are a Louboutin Cobbler 1. doesn't invest & 2. doesn't know where to get the parts for their trade. I'd be scared to leave any Louboutins with such a person! ........ jus sayin

You may be just saying, but it was kind of a rude comment.

I am independant, and Louboutins are my favourite designer, that is all. I am just getting into the basics of cobbling.

I dont have any contacts in the trade I am afraid.

Any help is most appreciated.

Best help I can offer is suggest you be wary of stretching any kind of patent leather footwear, it does not tend to stretch very easily without damage.

Care should be taken especially with the more upmarket type of footwear.

I saw instructional videos, that you do this with a special shoe stretching spray that goes into the leather insole on the targetted areas and you make minute adjustments, which can take up to 48 hours to get the desired stretch.

Then just follow the instructions and you should have no problem, best of luck to you.

Would you mind sending me a photo via private message and your price please. Thank You

Hi 

its in my shop once I am there on Saturday will take the photo for you. Also like the guys that said patent leather won’t get stretch i two will tell you the same thing but nonetheless the machine is for sale for stretching shoes. And all the best with learning new skills in cobbling well done. Do practice on some cheaper shoes if can. :-)

you have been given good advice if i was you i would heed it ,as for stretching the toe box ,that will all depend on where in the toe box area you need to adjust if it happens to be where the toe stiffener is then its very unlikely that it will give you what you want as this is akin to a thin film of plastic which is heated and formed over a last to maintain the shape of the toe once it has cooled it is unlikely that it will give any more ,and as said peyton leather is not exactly known for stretching with any good results
