In some situations, you may buy new Yeezys only to find out that the shoes are really tight for you.
At this point, you need to know what you should do with the Yeezys. Should you give it out?
I do not think you should just give out your Yeezys that you spent so much money on, if you still love your Yeezys you should not give it out yet unless you bought it for the purpose of giving it out.
Should you break it in? Yes, you should. I am going to explain to you how you can break in your Yeezys.
- Break-in by making use of a hairdryer as the heat
- Break-in my wearing your Yeezys with thick socks
- Wear them around the house for the first few days
- Insert a shoehorn in the shoe to loosen it
Break-in by making use of a hairdryer as heat
This is the most popular way that you can break in your Yeezys shoes so that it would stop being so tight on your toes.
How to make use of the hairdryer to break in your Yeezys shoes is to, first of all, get yourself a very good hairdryer and plug it into the socket, turn on the heat and ensure that you allow it to get so hot before you start to make use of it.
When you want to make use of it, ensure that the hairdryer is very hot, probably to the highest heat.
Once the hairdryer is hot enough, you should point it to the inside of the shoe and allow it to heat the inside of the shoe till it gets soft and begins to expand.
You should do this for about three minutes, if you do not get your desired result after three minutes you can try it all over again till you get your desired result.
When this is done you should allow your shoe to cool down a little bit from the heat that it just experienced, once it is a bit cool, you can wear it with socks for about 10 minutes and walk about for some time.
By then, your Yeezys shoes have expanded enough and the Toe box would be wider and should size you.
Break-in my wearing your Yeezys with thick socks
If you do not have access to a hairdryer or you are not ready to purchase one for yourself, another way that you can break in your Yeezys is by simply wearing your Yeezys with thick socks for about 10 minutes after you newly purchase it.
Thick socks are a good way to manually expand your new Yeezys if the toe box is tight for you. How you are to do this is to, first of all, get yourself thick socks that you can wear on both feet.
Once you have it you can go ahead wear it, once you have the thick socks work, you can go ahead to put on your Yeezys sneakers and leave them on for about 15 minutes.
In a period of 15 minutes, you should be able to get a good result. If after a period of 15 minutes you have not got a good result, you can go ahead to wear the Yeezys with thick socks all over again.
Once you do it twice or more you should have got your desired result.
Wear your Yeezys around the house for the first few days
I have mentioned at the beginning of this article that most times when you buy new shoes, they tend to be tight for the first few days, and most times, after you have worn them around for some hours, the shoe would loosen up.
That is why I recommend making use of this method. What you are to do is simply when you buy your Yeezys you should wear them around the house for the first few days.
If you ask me, I would rather you wear them with a pair of thick socks. When you wear the Yeezys with a pair of thick socks around your house for the first few days, you are going to have a better overall result.
You will notice that after the first few days of wearing your Yeezys around the house, it will start to expand and the toe box will be loose for you. It will no longer be as tight as it used to be.
Insert a shoehorn in your Yeezys to loosen it
This is one of the oldest methods that people use to break in shoes. It may be an old method, but it does not take away the fact that this method is still effective as every other method.
Despite the fact that this method is effective, it is not the fastest. How exactly do you insert a shoehorn in your Yeezys to loosen it? It is this simple.
The shoehorn is a wooden piece of tool that you can use to wear your shoes easily.
How you can do this is simply by inserting the shoehorn in the shoe from toe to the back heel, leaving the shoehorn in the shoe so it can stretch enough.
What I recommend is that you leave the shoehorn in the shoe for over an hour. The essence of leaving the shoehorn in the Yeezys is to enable you to get maximum results.
The best type of shoehorn that I recommend for this is for you to make use of the 24-inch shoehorn. This is going to offer maximum results.
One thing you can consider doing when your Yeezys are too tight is that you can try wearing your Yeezys without the insole.
How you can do this is by simply taking off your Yeezys insole and keeping the insole where you can always go back to it when you need it.
Once you have succeeded in completely taking them off, you can go ahead to wear the shoes without the insoles.
Once you do this you are going to see a big difference in how tight the Yeezys are on the toes.
If this is comfortable enough for you, you can try it out. I have tried it on my Yeezys 350 boost and it worked fine for me.
If this does not work fine for you, you can consider breaking in your Yeezys by making use of any other break-in methods I explained earlier in this article.
Should your favorite Yeezys be tight?
Your favorite Yeezys are not supposed to be tight, it is supposed to fit you comfortably without being so tight to the extent that it starts to cause blisters and make you feel uncomfortable.
As someone that writes a lot about sneakers and someone that also loves sneakers, I have come to realize that Yeezys shoes are fond of coming in toe boxes that are so narrow.
With this narrow toe box, the possibility of the Yeezys being so tight is high, so what you should do is that you should resort to sizing up. That is if you have wide feet.
What I mean by sizing up is that you should get Yeezys that are a bit bigger than your normal size. Since Yeezys are known to be tight shoes when you buy them, sizing up will not be a bad idea at all.
When your Yeezys are too tight, it could cause you to have blisters and even cause pains on your toes as well. You should go for Yeezys that fit, not the ones that are too tight.
If the Yeezys you love are so tight for you even after purchase, you should go ahead to make use of the methods above to break in the Yeezys.
How do you know your size in Yeezys?
It is very important that you know what size exactly you wear in Yeezys so that you do not go ahead to buy shoes that are too small or too big for you.
It helps you to know whether you are to size up or to size down when next you want to get yourself a pair of Yeezys.
However, it all depends on the Yeezys you are going for, generally, the Yeezys 350 V1 fit me true to size, so you should know that if you are buying a shoe that is true to size all you need to do is to be aware of your shoe size and buy exactly the shoe size.
For example, you are aware that the Yeezys 350 V1 is true to size, and if you wear a size 7, you should go ahead to buy a size 7 as this will fit you well.
However, the case is quite different when you want to purchase the V2 Yeezys. The V2 Yeezys runs small, what this simply means is that if you want to know the exact size in Yeezys you should go one full size up.
What I mean by that is since you are aware that the Yeezys V2 shoes run small, you should go for something bigger than your normal size.
If you wear a size 7, you should go for a size 8 instead, if you wear a size 9, you should go for a size 10. This will make it easier for you and will prevent you from buying shoes that are so small for you.
In general, if you want to know your shoe size in Yeezys since different Yeezys perform differently in sizes, you should, first of all, decide which Yeezys you want to get, determine if the Yeezys run true to size or not.
If it runs small you should size up, and if it runs big you should consider sizing down.
Here is a table showing the different Yeezys sizes for both men and women in the UK and in the US.
