Shoe shapers are used to preserve the visual appearance as well as the correct form of shoes and boots. When wearing shoes, your feet always perspirate. Over time, the upper (especially in leather shoes) starts bending outwards, making the shoe shorter. Wooden shoe shapers are breathable so that the shoe can dry quickly without losing its shape. At the same time, the upper leather is smoothed, and creases or small rips are compensated. This way, the lifespan of the shoe is extended. Shoe shapers made of plastic are not breathable which prevents the shoe from drying optimally.
Our spiral shoe shapers are available in 3 shapes - narrow, natural and wide. We offer the turnbuckles in double sizes and for men's and women's shoes. The front part is slotted to allow better air exchange.
Grasp the shoe shaper at the front of the wood and push it into the shoe to prevent it from tilting. Only when the wood is properly seated in the shoe is the spring tensioned and bent into the heel. If the shoe is damp, lay it on its side so that air can also get to the sole.
Our screwing shoe shapers made of beech wood are available in two forms: normal and natural. The front part is waxed and is offered unslotted or slotted to improve aeration.
Via the screw mechanism, the tension can be individually adjusted. This way, it is possible to compensate for size deviations in the shoes. To a limited extent, is also possible to widen shoes which are too small using a screwing shoe shaper.
Our exclusive solid wood shoe shapers are the best you can offer your shoes. The 3-piece stretcher is individually made to customer order, sanded and polished.
The interior of the shoe is almost completely filled by this stretcher. The shoe is thus placed under slight tension in the longitudinal direction as well as in the transverse direction in the area of the toes. This premium shaper is made exactly according to the customer's shoe lasts, ensuring an individual fit for the wearer.
