You love the pair of leather shoes you got last Christmas. Unfortunately, they have stretched out and no longer fit like a glove. Or perhaps the perfect fitting leather pants now bag in the seat.
Fortunately, there are some options available to bring your leather items back into shape. Not only can leather be stretched, it can be shrunk. Whether shrinking or softening your leather item, using a leather conditioner as a final step is always recommended.
Set the leather shoes in the sun to dry, weather permitting. Both heat and water cause leather to shrink. Place a damp leather item in the dryer, if you cannot air-dry the item in the sun. Set the controls on low heat and tumble the item in the dryer for 10 minutes.

Soak the leather pants in hot water until completely wet. Then, allow to air dry. The water will shrink the leather pants temporarily. Wearing them a few times will stretch them out again, but you can always wet them and do this process all over again. Spray the leather with the hot water until all the leather is saturated. Be careful not to wet the interior surfaces of shoes. Apply heat to the leather. If you live in a hot climate, set your leather outside in the sun, and allow it to dry completely. For faster shrinking, set your hair dryer to its highest heat setting. Choose a medium or low speed. Place a damp leather item in the dryer, if you cannot air-dry the item in the sun. Set the controls on low heat and tumble the item in the dryer for 10 minutes. Remove the item from the dryer and put it on to check the amount of shrinkage that has occurred.
