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.
For an overview of some selected models, please see our shoe shaper online catalogue.
This is the simplest form of shoe shaper. Our spiral shoe shapers are available in the 3 forms narrow, natural and wide. We offer the shoe shapers in double sizes and for women’s and men’s shoes. The front part is slotted in order to provide improved air exchange.
Grab the shoe shaper at the front and slide it into the shoe. If you grab the spring and skewer the shoe with the shaper, the wood may cant and the shaper won’t be positioned correctly. The spring is only tensioned and bent into the heel after the wooden part is fitting properly. If the shoe is moist, place it on the side to ensure that air can reach 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 shaper is the best thing you can do to give your shoes a long life. The stretcher consists of 3 parts and is produced, sharpened and polished individually according to our customer’s order.
The interior of the shoe is almost completely filled by this shoe shaper. This way, the shoe is put under slight tension in both longitudinal and lateral direction in the area of the toes. This premium shoe shaper is made exactly according to the shoe lasts of the customer, ensuring a perfect fit for the person wearing the shoe.
Out shoe shapers are exclusively made of the high-quality and durable wood of local beeches.
