Vermont Country Store customer service quickly replaced the first pair of these that broke with the first use. Replacements weathered one use, but I'm not optimistic. I ordered these to replace a stretcher my husband and I had had for 7 yrs. VCS version are unfinished wood with short handle and very shoddily made. Happily,not very expensive. VCS is a great vendor. Hope they can find a better made version of these stretchers.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Maine Woods Gal No more snug shoes!
Since I've been retired and moved to Me I don't dress up like I used to. My feet have gotten too comfortable in casual shoes so when I do wear my dress shoes they feel a little snug. I was using my hubby's size 9 stretcher on my shoes. This didn't work so well when I wear a size 6. I decided to get my own and lo and behold my Vermont Store catalog came and there they were. I've already put them to work.

I have always for as long as I can remember have had trouble with shoes being to small for my wide feet. I love these shoe stretchers. I am now on my second pair of shoes stretching as of right now. I love these and look forward to using them forever.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by wolfgirl Too small for the job
These really are too small to stretch the size shoes they say they do. If I had to do it over I would buy the men's stretchers to stretch my women's size 8 1/2 shoes. Not sure what you men can do for yours because I'm sure the men's must be too small for them as well. In fact I read a guy's story here that says just that. I tried it on 2 pairs of shoes, one cloth and one leather and by the time they were finished the part that screws down to widen the wooden part would not come back out essentially making them useless now and the shoes are really not stretched the way I expected them to be.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by eab Wooden shoe stretchers are just what I needed
68 yrs old & have several problems with my feet - several surgeries later, still need to relieve pressure in some places. These stretchers come with a bunch of little pieces you can put in specific spots to stretch the lining (a shoe guy told me it is the lining that keeps the leather from conforming to your foot.) I have used them on several pairs already.

Couldn't find this product anywhere, including at shoe repair shops in NYC - This was better than expected -good quality, fair price, and really works well.
