As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

Give long break-in times the boot!

The Der Dau Boot Stretch Spray helps soften and permanently stretch all leathers or suede. It helps relieve tight boots or half chaps. The unique formula will soften even the stiffest boot or shoe, making it so comfortable you'd swear it was custom-made! 8oz

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Der Dau boot stretch Pretty good stuff - didn't need it on all parts of my boots, just the top - seemed to work pretty well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This stuff works! I bought this for my husband to try to salvage a pair of expensive work boots that were a tad too narrow. So far, he's used it a number of times and is seeing results. Better than wasting $100!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works!!!! I recently pulled out my pair of Ariat field boots that had been sitting in their box for quite a while. I couldn't get the zippers up, so after reading some reviews, I decided to try Der Dau boot stretch spray. It works! I did have to spray the boots and then get them zipped up & wear them for a while, and I did have to do this several times. I definitely recommend this product!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Actually Works I got a pair of tall boots on clearance that were .5" short of what I measured for, but figured they were worth the chance. With the help of this boot spray and some old fashioned exercise, they fit with no problem! The spray helped my boots from being unable to zip up fully with thick breeches, to a snug but comfortable fit with any riding attire. Major win!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really works and so easy! This is a great product. I wish I had found it when I first started breaking in my Dressage boots. I used lambswool padding on my ankles for months and after using this spray twice, my boot are comfortable with just socks.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! I had gotten a real deal on a barely used pair of Ariat Monacos and I was so excited! The only thing was that they were cutting off the circulation in my feet and it took me over 10 minutes just to zip one boot, getting a nasty blister on my finger. On the next boot I broke the zipper pull off! I was desperate to make these fit so I took a warm bath in them and wore them until they dried (over my socks and breeches) then a couple days later used this spray. after spraying once and walking around, I could zip them up without assistance. after the second spray I could zip them easily and they look and feel custom! I only used about half the bottle so I plan on using this to break in the schooling boots I just bought. Amazing, boot-saving product!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works! My husband was wanting me to take my tall boots to our local shoe repair to have them stretched as he was sick of pulling them off of me. The shoe repair man did not think he could stretch them much and was trying to convince me to put a zipper in my Vogel custom boots. I was horrified. So, I found this product on SmartPak and used it - it really works. The first time I sprayed it lightly and it worked a little. The second time I put a heavier mist over the tight area and the boots came off with ease. We are so pleased!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really does work! I was breaking in a pair of tall boots and the zipper broke after 3 rides. When Smartpak replaced the broken tall boots, I had them add a thing of this boot spray. After 3 rides of using the spray, there was a huge difference in how broken in the second set was (that I used the spray with) vs the first pair of exact same boots that I didn't use the spray with. You just spray on the inside of your boots and wear.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I can now keep my new boots! This is a great product. I got new boots as a Christmas gift that were very tight in the calf and needed to be stretched to fit. I bought this product based on other reviews hoping for a miracle. Well, I got one. After 3 applications the boots fit so much better and now I can keep them! I am very happy with this product and would definately buy it again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product! Amazing product for stretching areas of your boot that you need to open up a little. Wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't tried it myself.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved my tall boots I had a pair of extra slim extra tall custom field boots from high school that, a decade later, were TOUGH (borderline impossible) to zip. 20 minutes in they were excrutiating and I lost all feeling in my legs. They were headed to the consignment tack shop. After 3 applications of the boot stretch (liberally applied to the tight areas, then worn for 30 minutes or so) the boots fit like they were made to. Needless to say, I am thrilled.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you have tall boots, you need this My field boots have always been.....well difficult! This really helped them stretch and made it so much easier to get on. I've already packed it in my tack truck for the next show. Doesnt smell terrible and didnt stain my pants, another plus!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Last ditch effort to save my boots I ordered custom boots from Vogel. They have never fit me, even after five returns, and personally returning them to their shop in NYC! I got a local boot guy to modify the tops so I could at least zip them up. But, the foot was still too tight. Der Dau Boot Stretch liquid was my last hope of getting the foot to stretch to fit my wide foot. It worked! I had to wear them while the liquid was wet, until it dried. It was not very long. They stayed stretched, too. Good stuff. (I still hate the boots, but I can get them on now.)
