Who has never bought or won shoes with the correct numbering, but felt that tightness when using? This is quite common and you don’t have to worry and think about switching. The Passarela team brought some tips for Lacquering Shoes at home to help you on this mission of parading around with great comfort!
Practical ways of Lacquering Shoes at Home
Before choosing your preferred option, take into account what you already have at home to facilitate the process. Do not do them all on the same day, but there is no problem in alternating practices to achieve the expected result over time. Let’s start?
1. With thick stocking and dryer
Do you know that thicker sock in your wardrobe? Find it and with it on your feet, put on your shoe. The next step is to use a hairdryer at a high temperature, but taking great care not to burn yourself or damage your shoes.
If you don’t have a thick enough sock, you can make an overlay to ensure the desired effect. When using this stronger layer and putting on your shoes, you will have an effort to lacquer, since the friction will be greater.
The dryer acts as a modeling facilitator. As the high temperature will “soften” your shoes temporarily and your foot will be inside them, the mold will be made in the right way, completely adapting to your body.
This is the best way to lacquer a shoe, as it does not make it wide, but it fits your foot. You can repeat it a few times during the week until you feel comfortable.
2. With newspaper and alcohol
To optimize your time, you can take advantage of the night time to do the lacquering while you sleep.
