It is common for a new pair of leather boots to be rather uncomfortable when first wearing them. Usually leather boots will stretch out some and form to the shape of an individual's foot, however this is not true for all boots. It may be necessary to stretch, or widen, a pair of leather boots to make them fit more comfortably.

Apply a generous layer of shoe stretch spray over the entire surface of the boot by simply spraying it on.

Put on a thick pair of socks to help with the stretching process of the boots and put the boots on.

Wear the leather boots until the shoe stretch spray is completely dry.
