Dansko shoes are known throughout the restaurant industry for their comfort and durability. The most popular shoe is the leather clog that’s worn by both chefs and waiters. If you have a pair of Danskos that need to be stretched, you will need some simple tools and a couple of days.

Things You'll Need

Spray your shoes with a shoe-stretching spray. Completely saturate the upper part of the shoe.

Insert the shoe stretchers into the wet shoes. Twist the shoe stretchers to tighten and stretch the shoes. Let the shoes dry overnight.

Try on the shoes the next day to see if your Danskos have stretched.

If necessary, spray and stretch the shoes again. Continue the process until your Dansko shoes are stretched to fit.


  • Start with a small stretch the first time around.
