What about other discomforts? 

Did you buy that lovely pair of shoes, but they appear to be a little bit too tight? Before burying your shoes in your shoe closet, you might consider to stretch your shoe(s). Learn more about it in our blog How To Stretch Shoes & To Achieve A Long Lasting Effect or visit your nearest MISTER MINIT shop.

Don’t forget this tip next time you go shopping: your feet swell naturally during the day, so shop for shoes in the afternoon to find the best fit and to avoid the tightness and discomfort later.
