I love this thing! I think I remember having something similar many years ago but that it didn't really work. The difference might be the heavy wood or the spray that allows for stretching. But I have stretched several pair of shoes already and am so glad to have the extra room that allows me to wear my shoes more comfortably.

Relieves pressure and rubbing on the feet by easing tightness. This shoekeeper is just as good as the cobbler or shoemaker, but you can do it at home. This device improved the shoe fit on my feet which have changed as I aged. Let the shoes fit so you can wear them!
