Friday Feet

monk shoes

Found these patent leather white monks on clearance a couple of months ago at Trash and Vaudeville. They were a size too small and the last pair. I took them and with fingers crossed used a brilliant stretching spray that my friend Paula in London raves over.  She posted a can over to me.  After a few days wearing them they they fit. I’m getting another can as a back up. I bet you it’s the same spray cobblers use with a shoe stretcher when you give them your shoes to stretch. 
What shoes are you in right now?

    Hi Karen,

    What is the name of the spray? I have a few shoes that are a little too tight and tried a regular shoe stretcher device, but never a spray so I am curious!

    Thank you!

      I wouldn’t have been had I not had the spray. It was a gamble.

    Ladies, the spray you need is COLLONIL Stretch :-). It’s available on Amazon. It’s brilliant and works wonders on that slight annoying pinch or loosens shoes up a treat with a couple of applications. Happy stretching!!! Xx
