Formé Shoe Shapers for Happy Feet

Are you like me and love to buy shoes online?  I’ve gotten so many great bargains over the years between sales and special offers.  Here’s the thing though, when I can’t try them on, I’m not ‘really’ sure that the shoes I purchase online will fit me.  Inevitably I get blisters from them, because they are just a shade too tight, be it length wise or width wise.  🙁  That extra friction on my toes or on my heels cause painful blisters that sometimes take weeks to heal.

Formé is the first and only shoe shaper FOR WOMEN that safely stretches shoes up to a half a size, eliminating the pain that occurs when the toe box gets tight as the day wears on. 

You can customize the amount of stretch and they work in any shoes (heels, flats, boots, sandals, sneakers) of any material (leather, fabric, even synthetic).  That’s right those shoes you “had” to have, you know the ones that sit in the corner of your closet taunting you because they cause you too much pain to wear, thanks to Formé, those shoes can be your sole mates ( 😉 ) again!


Last week I was wearing a well known brand of walking shoes for a three mile walk.  Both shoes in the pair are size 5 ½.  Not uncommon for some of us, one shoe was fitting a little snugger than the other, but I paid it no mind as it was noticeable but I could walk just fine.  Until I couldn’t.  Bring on the blister to end all blisters.  Luckily for me just the day before the Formé Shoe Shapers had arrived at my home for review.  (A big thank you to Formé for supplying them at no cost to myself).  You know I put them to use immediately!

So do they really work?  Well I had success with them.  I did have to leave them in longer than overnight, so it took a bit of time but they did stretch.  I may not be running a ½ marathon in them, but I was able to wear them again after the blister fiasco without any issues.  Yay!

Formé Shoe Shapers can help perfect the fit of your shoes.

To stretch shoes, you expand the wings first by pushing the button forward and then place them in your shoes. Don’t worry if the handle doesn’t go down in the heel area. Formé was engineered so the front works without counterforce from the heel area. After a few hours you can check the fit, if they need more stretch, you can leave them in overnight.  The stretch period varies for each shoe and depends on the materials it is made from, so give yourself a couple of days lead time if you are wanting to stretch a pair for a special occasion.   

7 adjustment positions expand the wings so you can control the amount of force in the toe area.  4 adaptive fit points, pivot to fit any shoe style.

These shoe shapers are also designed to safely restore the “like-new” shape of your shoes along with the fit, and they minimize wrinkles.

If you have one or multiple pairs of shoes that you wish you could wear again and want to try Formé Shoe Shapers head on over to their website to order a set (or two, or one for you and one for a friend!).  They retail for $48.95 and come in 4 sizes to fit shoes ranging in sizes from 5 to 12.
