    Very easy, I just made sure I got a separate oven thermometer as it is a low temp that you do them at. Make sure cleats and insoles removed then just bung them in for 20 minutes, might take a couple of tries to get it right.
    They are very very stiff and once sorted seem to be a good shoe.
    The website says you can do as many times as you like…

    I’ve read the instructions on the website but am slightly nervous about putting my shoes in the over [gulp] but the right shoes is pinching slightly at the joint of my little toe 🙁
    Has anyone done this to a pair before? Is it as easy as they say or is it easy to bugger it up?

    Seemed simple enough…

    Not that I use them thou. Didn’t find them comfy at all.

    Done mine in the oven twice, first time they were still a bit cramped at the toe.
    Even used the wife’s hairdryer to soften the toe, then pushed the toe out with a wooden spoon.
    Just remember to remove the insoles when you heat them, found out I now have one size 4 insole for a size 8 Bont.

    havent done it with shoes, but decent ice skates are done like this these days, ive done em at home a few times, no problems at all.
    er, do i need to point out that a gas oven is a bad idea?
