File this under “useful” – an easy way to stretch out your shoes

August 27, 2009

I don’t think my friend realized how relevant this is to me when she forwarded this video.

So, I just happen to be one of those cursed individuals whose feet are always a 1/2 foot size too big or a 1/2 size too small. I basically wear a range from 7.5 to 9. For reals.

But count on my fave artiste/makeup guru, Michelle Phan, to come up with an inventive way to stretch out your shoes…with ice:

Seriously, how does she come up with this stuff?? Have you ever heard of stretching shoes like that? I’m tempted to try these shoe-cicles.

    wow, that’s so crazy. so if you just wanted to break in your shoe without stretching it too much, would you use less water?

    omg wow that’s amazing and so creative! i wonder how she came across it or what made her want to experiment that.

    hunh, thats interesting, but i guess it makes sense. thats so funny though bc as she was putting them in her freezer i was like “um i dunno how my roommate would feel about that” and then she started saying “make sure whoever you live with is ok with it!”
