Wetting With Water Mothod Recommended for:
* Dancers with narrow feet who have a hard time finding shoes that fit well. (It is possible to reduce the width of the shoe from D to C, or C to B and so on. However, reducing the width by two letters such as from D to B, cannot be done. When the shoes are simply too loose, this or no other method will work. There is a limit to how much adjustment can be made.)
* When you mistakenly ordered the wrong width of shoes .
* When the shoes don't quite conform to your foot shape. How to: 1. If you need to lower your crown, do what you need to do (stepping on it, etc.) to achieve it before you proceed to wet your shoe. 2. To prevent the platform of the shoe from getting wet, stuff newspaper or other material to protect it. (Once wet, platforms can change size in terms of length and width.) 3. With a spray bottle, spray a fine mist of water to wet the box area from outside and from inside. 4. To make the shoe conform to your foot shape, wear the shoe and dry it a little with a hair dryer. 5. When it is half way dry, take the shoe off from your foot and let it air dry the rest of the way.
Note* This method sometimes creates watermarks on the satin of your shoes, depending on the brands. Also, it sometimes dull the sheen of the satin. Take care not to over wet the shoe and over shrink it. The degree of shrinkage also varies depending on brands. Take your time and proceed with caution. Wet and shrink gradually by repeating the process as necessary. Satin material usually hardens after wetting and drying, so you may want to soften the fabric by massaging with your fingers. This method works with not only new shoes but old shoes that have been worn, but once you have varnished your shoes, there can be no shrinkage.
Well, that´s it - any questions? By the way I got it from the point shoe shopping introduction for the girls of my ballet school. Even NOT for me
