Tight shoes are a real bummer. However, they don’t have to stay that way. Did you know there is a way to loosen your shoes? Yep, that’s right, and it only takes a few minutes. All you need is an extra thick pair of socks (or a couple of pairs) and a hairdryer. Just pop on your shoes over a pair of thick socks and blast the hair dryer on them.
