Has anyone tried to lengthen a toe pocket before? My lilac pair of Classics has one toe that bothers me, the left pinky toe, because it is too short.
I read a post on a forum somewhere from a guy who had a similar problem. He lengthened the second toe of his VFFs (a common problem) by heating a clothes iron to its maximum setting, laying a piece of aluminum foil over it, using some sort of tool (I think he used the handle end of a small screwdriver) to stretch out the toe pocket rubber, laying the toe pocket on the iron and aluminum and stretching the rubber with the tool, and rapid cooling the rubber by placing the shoe in ice cold water.
Any thoughts? Think it would work? Think it would wreck the shoe?
