boot stretching

New crack shoes, Sportiva Tradmasters. These were free but way too small for me. I ground some of the slingshot rand off the back, and a tiny bit over my middle toes, wore them wet, and am stretching out the backs a bit with a pulley system over chair legs.

note, you can't permanently stretch the rubber, it always springs back. You need to grind it or maybe slash it with a knife (drastic). You can stretch the leather by wearing them wet or stretching tight points over a chair as above. They seem to fit now

I prefer a bench grinder but have used an angle grinder or a knife
