This thing works! It has made two pairs of shoes which were almost unbearable to wear for any length of time comfortable. I had to stretch them way more than the recommended overnight, but it hasn't hurt the shoes. Plus, it's just fun to have something this weird-looking hanging around the house.

I tried this to stretch my wedding shoes. It broke the first time I used it. I would definitely not recommend this stretcher.

Love these stiletto stretcher!!! They are so awesome I am buying 1 more to have 2. This way I may stretch 1 pair at a time instead of 1 show at a time. Plus they are attractive to see.

Love this Foot Petals stiletto stretcher so I ordered another one! So easy to use and gets the job done. With one you need to do one shoe at a time. This is why I ordered another!

Works great. You can really personalize the shape it stretches into. I've only used it on open toe shoes that were too tight around a bunion area. I plan on using it on other shoes as well.

I used this on a pair of shoes....I know! It worked great, mostly bc it's not chincy. It's wood and the handle is heavy weight metal. Also, those little "bumps" that come with it make it so you can customize it to stretch the areas on your foot that need more room.

This shoe stretcher worked great for me. Reading other reviews that said it broke on the first use I found the quality to be good. I have used it one one pair of shoes, so I do not know if it is durable, but the quality seems fine and it worked by stretching the area that I needed stretched. So I would recommend it.

Works well in stilettos. Angled wooden part fits into the highest heel. Only reason it didn't get 5 stars is that the metal handle can press down on the back of the shoe if you're not careful. Overall though it does the job quickly and well. I would recommend buying two so you can stretch both shoes at the same time.

I bought this shoe stretcher and did not use it for months after receiving it. Then I used it once or twice. Finally, I looked at the box and realized I had not received all the little stretcher tabs that were supposed to be included. I called Zappos and they sent me a new shoe stretcher immediately with no questions asked even though I had received the item months before. I love Zappos!! They have the best customer service. I really like the shoe stretcher. I used it to stretch a pair of fashion cowboy boots that I had very painfully worn to a wedding. After buying my stretcher, I stretched the boots and wore them easily to a party with no foot pain. The stretcher works on flats and high heels. I am very satisfied with my purchase and with Zappos.

Very poorly made. It broke as I was twisting the knob to stretch my shoe; never even got the chance to use it. I have to return it.

This worked the first few times I used it, then it broke. For almost the price that's definitely not worth it. It is poorly made.

Both broke the first time! I just received it. I was so happy. That changed real quickly. I bought two and both broke. I was going to use the one and take the other as a loss but when the second broke I said forget it. Do not buy! It is made of plastic and glue so that is the problem. My poor Christian Louboutins heels!

Brands I'd also recommend: none

This is an awful shoe stretcher! It broke after one use. I thought it was defective, so I returned it. The exact same thing happened with the second one.

Not sure how I feel about this product since mine broke just after a couple uses. I'm tempted to buy another one and try it again. It seems like it works if you leave it in shoe for a couple days, stretching a little more each day. The little buttons are a nice feature so you can 'customize' the stretching to your needs. It should be sold in pairs, since it's a bit silly to have to do one shoe at a time, especially when it seems to take more than one night to stretch the shoes.

This works pretty well. I used it in an open-toe platform show and it did a nice job. The only downside is it is made with wood and the hole is starting to strip out because I cranked it down to the widest setting. It still works, though and my shoes fit!

It would have been a great shoe stretcher, if the center plastic piece wouldn't keep breaking. I was trying to use this as carefully as possible, since the reviews before me mentioned it breaking easily. I thought I'd take my chances. Unfortunately they were all right. I think if they spent a little bit more money on design & construction of this stretcher, it would work so great.

LOVE this stretcher! I looked at so many online & decided to go with this...& very glad I did! Worked great & before stretching, the shoes were literally killers for pain. The little knobby things were perfect to put where you need them. Wore the shoes for a wedding & although not completely pain free, I was able to wear them all day and all night! And that says everything!

I bought the shoe stretcher with so much hope, I have 3 pairs of shoes that are very tight in the toe area. The stretcher broke after 2 uses and I don't feel it stretched the shoes at all. I would not recommend this product.

The concept of this product is awesome. I would give this review 5 stars but the stretchers broke on the second day. I think the product was dry rotted. Unfortunately, I purchased the stretchers for a pair of shoes to wear on vacation. I was not able to send them back because I threw the box away before I departed. Although my shoes did stretch after one use, I would recommend just going to your local shoe repair and having them stretched. Then I would use the kiwi shoe stretcher to maintain the shape. Save the money.

This works great! I love it. I had two pairs of shoes that were tight in the toes. It takes some time and there is only one. I found if I left it in for about 3 days in each, it was perfect. Extend a little more each morning to get an extra stretch.

I am very happy that I bought this item. I used it in my heels that are too narrow in the toe area. I left the stretcher in each shoe for 6 days and it worked wonders. Previously I could not wear these heels past noon. Now, I can wear them all day. I'm very pleased. I also like the removable buttons and that that can be placed exactly where you need a little extra stretch Thank you for giving me back a pair of expensive heels!

Was so hoping this would work, but after using it 3 times to try to stretch out a pair of satin heels it didn't make a difference. Maybe the fabric of the shoe matters. The stoppers were a little difficult to put in, but they will go in with a little twisting and turning. As a plus, the 4 stoppers came in different shapes and sizes.
