They say when you get older your feet widen. They say it's doubly so when you wear sandals. Well, I've worn sandals and flip-flips for half of my life and those two haves are getting on in years.

My grandfather has old stretch knobs in his wingtips to keep them wide for his fatty feet. When I was young I used to make fun of him. Now I ask where he gets them from.

We started talking about Stretch Genie when we saw this on TV. He asked if I knew if they were worthwhile. I told him I wasn't sure, yet, but I'd get back to him by the weekend dinner. That's tomorrow.

Here's what I'm going to share with him...

What Is Stretch Genie?

Stretch Genies are like those old-time shoe stretchers with a new time twist:   a special spray which softens up the leather , making it easier to stretch without damaging the material. It's supposed to work on leather, suede & natural skin. It also works on gloves as well, though the only knobs you'll probably be able to get in them are the stubby ones at the ends of your wrists.

Benefits, Claims & Features

According to stretchgenie.com, Stretch Genie claims the following features and benefits:

  • adjustable knobs to expand width
  • compact design
  • contoured
  • penetrates leather quickly
  • relaxes and softens leather fibers

Does Stretch Genie Work? Review of Complaints, Frauds, Rip-Offs, Scams...

Order Process:  Pretty straight up offer per industry standards. Buy 1, Get 1. Second P&H price for the second set. But then you can go after two pairs of shoes at the same time. That's actually worth mentioning because we've seen some shoe offers where they sell the second set of the pair for free. Go figure. Note - watch dogs haven't been out in force so we think it's gonna be a good thing. Also, the product site actually says the total for the initial offer towards the footer.

Product Performance:  Good vibes by all. The marketing review fluff is on high alert with this. We found a couple interesting conversation threads. We wish SCIMark report would make people put their names with their comments because if this wasn't the most anonymous conversation we've seen in awhile, then it's close. Here's the link to that thread .   

Otherwise we haven't seen or heard much that would say otherwise.

Final Thoughts - What to Expect

For us, it would really depend on the shoes. If the shoes don't cost as much as the product - like say one of those sales on Bass Shoes - we wouldn't go for this product. And we'd also wouldn't try them on our favorite pair of shoes first. We've liked what we've read, but hold to the old muslem proverb:  we'd trust in Allah and tie up our camels.

Hey, the offer does come with a second set to try on some other shoes. If you think it's worth your while, check it out. You can get it from Amazon. Check out the search at the top of the page.

Before I'd ever use a product like Dr. Ho's Back Belt, I would consult my chiropractor - who I haven't seen in awhile. What we found is that most people wouldn't take such an approach...

[Review] NutriBullet - It's Better Than Your Blender Because???? WTF?

I would swear that the NutriBullet is just a Magic Bullet with a different plastic skin and fonts & iconography. I assume that if I want to make veggie smoothies I could just use a Magic Bullet, but apparently I can't. Or something like that. I'm still looking.

Review - InstaBulb w/ Anthony Sullivan - Another Classic My Grandfather Used

This is one of those times where my grandfather bought something he wanted to see on TV and it was a great idea. I went into the garage and click the switch when I realized the light-bulb didn't look like an ordinary light-bulb.

Neutrogena SkinID [Review] - Free Skin ID Evaluation

With so many acne products out and about, on television, on the shelves, at the impulse counter, next to the Redbox and vending machines...It's enough to make one wonder as to why the competition is so fierce. Is it because no single product works well enough? Or is it because people have a hard time telling which product works for them. Maybe Neutrogena is onto something with the SkinID.
