Shoe stretcher

Being the shoe slut that I am, a handy weapon in the arsenal for dealing with thrift store finds is a shoe stretcher which, when judiciously applied, forces the leather to be a tad more accommodating.
 The marks (USMC) on this one suggest that it might have seen military service.

Stretchers are often confused with shoe & boot trees which are wooden forms inserted to help keep the shape of the boot.
