Ever buy what you think are the best wrestling shoes, only to find out they’re too tight? Or maybe you’ve had a pair for a while and they’re just starting to feel snug. Either way, you’re in luck! In this blog post, we’ll teach you how to stretch out your wrestling shoes so you can actually wear them. Keep reading to learn more.

The Toe Box Method

One way to stretch your wrestling shoes is to focus on the toe box. This method is best for breaking in new shoes, or for giving your old shoes a much-needed refresh. To start, put on a pair of socks and slip into your shoes. Make sure that you are wearing the socks that you will be wearing when you wrestle; this will give you the most accurate fit. Once you have your shoes on, use your hands to scrunch up the toe box as much as possible. Hold this position for 30 seconds or so before releasing. Repeat this process a few times until you feel the material starting to loosen up.

The Tongue Method

Another way to stretch your wrestling shoes is by focusing on the tongue. This method is good for giving your shoes a little bit of extra give in the mouth area. Start by lacing up your shoes snugly but not too tightly—you should be able to slip two fingers underneath the laces when they’re tied. Once your shoes are laced up, use your thumbs to press down on either side of the tongue. Hold this position for 30 seconds before releasing. Repeat this process a few times until you feel the tongue start to loosen up. 

Freeze Them

One of the easiest ways to stretch out your wrestling shoes is to freeze them. Just put them in a plastic bag and place them in the freezer overnight. In the morning, take them out and let them thaw for a bit. Then, try wearing them around the house for an hour or so. You should notice that they’re already feeling a bit looser.

Wear Them in the Shower

Another easy way to stretch out your shoes is to wear them in the shower. Just put them on and let the warm water from the shower do its work. After a few minutes, you should feel the shoes start to loosen up. Just be careful not to slip and fall!

Use a Hair Dryer or Tea Kettle

If freezing or wearing your shoes in the shower doesn’t work, you can try using a hair dryer or tea kettle. Just heat up some water and pour it into a bowl. Then, hold the hair dryer or tea kettle about 6 inches away from the bowl so that the steam hits your shoes. Let the steam hit your shoes for about 30 seconds, then try wearing them around the house again. With any luck, they’ll be feeling much better by now.

Conclusion: 

We hope this blog post was helpful! Remember, if your wrestling shoes are too tight, you can always try freezing them, wearing them in the shower, or using a hair dryer or tea kettle to help stretch them out. With any luck, one (or all) of these methods will do the trick and you’ll be able to wear your shoes with ease. Thanks for reading!
