Breaking in SOLS Genuine Leather Shoes

You've just received your first pair of SOLS shoes—opening the box, the rich scent of genuine leather envelops you, and they look just as stunning as you envisioned. Eagerly slipping them on, you're met with a slight snugness. Wait, what? You double-checked the size—why aren't they fitting perfectly?

If this scenario feels all too familiar, fear not! Genuine leather, the hallmark of our handmade SOLS shoes, possesses a remarkable quality—it stretches! That's right, as you wear them, these shoes will gradually conform to your feet, providing a fit as comfortable as it is impeccable. This snugness isn't a flaw; it's a testament to the exquisite craftsmanship and top-tier materials that define SOLS footwear.

Leather Stretching Steps

But what's the best way to ensure your SOLS shoes reach their full potential in terms of fit and comfort? It's simple yet crucial—

  1. Prior to stepping out, spend some time wearing them around your home with socks for a few hours each day over the course of about a week.

  2. To speed up the process, you can heat up the leather with a hair dryer on a low setting.

Heating up the leather allows for the natural skin material to expand. This process allows the leather to mold to the unique contours of your feet, guaranteeing optimal comfort and support with every stride.

We understand the pitfalls of ill-fitting shoes—blisters, discomfort, and the inevitable foot pain that follows. By taking the proactive step of properly stretching your genuine leather SOLS shoes, you're effectively sidestepping these issues, ensuring a phenomenal wearing experience wherever your day takes you. After all, who wants to be preoccupied with uncomfortable footwear when there's a world to explore?

Long-term wear

Moreover, stretching your SOLS shoes isn't just about immediate comfort—it's an investment in their longevity. By allowing the leather to gradually adapt to your feet, you're mitigating the risk of excessive wear and tear in specific areas, thus extending the lifespan of your beloved footwear. This means you'll be savoring the unparalleled quality and style of SOLS for years to come.

Once your SOLS shoes have been properly stretched and fitted, you'll discover their versatility knows no bounds. Whether you're dressing them up for a special occasion, down for a casual outing, or simply need a reliable pair for your daily errands, SOLS shoes rise to the occasion with unmatched grace and comfort.

In essence, while initial snugness may cause momentary disappointment, it's merely the beginning of a beautiful journey. Picture it: a shoe that not only fits like a glove but also embodies your unique footprint, accompanying you on every adventure with a comforting embrace.

That's the promise of SOLS—comfort, style, and confidence, all in one remarkable pair of shoes. So go ahead, step into the world with your SOLS shoes, and let every stride be a testament to the extraordinary comfort and craftsmanship they represent.
