How to Break in Patent Leather Shoes

Patent leather shoes look incredible. However, with that beauty comes a price. Because of their lustrous finish, they’re pretty inflexible and hard to extend.

So, when choosing a patent pair, make sure you get the right fit to begin with. This will make things easier! Of course, if your patent leather shoes are a bit tight, you can take a few precautions:

Start by wearing your patent leather shoes gradually and at home.


Wear comfortable socks that will protect your feet from blisters.


If  blisters are unavoidable, make sure you carry Band-Aids with you.


Gently heat the leather with a blow dryer.
