Alpha presents different scenarios when you are selecting new shoes and they aren’t completely comfortable. You love the shoes but they aren’t 100%. You rationalize if you do indeed by them. Thoughts range from sock thickness, size, and break-in time. In this video men’s style, grooming, fitness and lifestyle expert, Aaron Marino of IAmAlphaM, AaronMarino, and Pete & Pedro discusses who to instantly break-in new shoes.

Wonderfully Wearable Shoes Today!

All you need are thick socks (athletic, heavy wool, multiple socks depending on how much you need to stretch) and a hair dryer. Don’t do this procedure if your shoes are plastic or synthetic as they’ll melt.

Set the hair dryer on hot. Heat up areas one at a time for 20 – 30 seconds. You can do this procedure multiple times as the stiffer the leather, the more you have to hold it. You don’t want to hold directly on the leather as to not burn it. Walk around after getting hot. Walk until it cools down. Repeat to the other side.

If you want volume, texture, and thickness in your hair, you have to try Pete & Pedro’s pre-styler, Sea SALT Spray. It offers light hold and incredible volume & texture. It will also make your hair thicker. After I shower, I add a few squirts of SALT to my hair. Then, I apply my hair styling product (typically Putty). You will be amazed at how much volume, thickness, and texture your hair will have! Once you unlock the power of an amazing pre-styler, you’ll wonder how you ever styled without it!⁠
