Another simple way to stretch your espadrilles is by stuffing them with a towel.
Tightly roll up the towel and insert it into the espadrilles. Leave the towel in for several hours, and the shoes should stretch out.

Shoe stretchers are a useful tool for stretching shoes. They are designed to stretch shoes and help to maintain their shape. To use a shoe stretcher on your espadrilles, insert the stretcher into the shoe and slowly turn the handle to widen the stretcher. Leave the stretcher in for several hours, and the shoes should be stretched out.

Heat can help to soften the fibers of the shoe and make them more pliable. You can use a hairdryer or a steamer to apply heat to your espadrilles. Once the shoes are heated, put them on and wear them until they cool down. The heat should help to stretch out the shoes, making them more comfortable to wear.
In conclusion, if your espadrilles feel tight or snug, there are several ways to stretch them out. Wearing them around the house, stuffing them with a towel, using a shoe stretcher, and applying heat are all effective methods for stretching your espadrilles. Try these methods, and you should be able to enjoy your comfortable and stylish espadrilles in no time!
