New showjumping boots

my mum bought me new showjumping boots, long ones and they are BEAUTIFUL. She spent a fortune on them too, but they're very tight in the leg until I break them in, does anyone have any ideas to help stretch them a bit?
Thanks!

Just wearing them around everywhere, is what's going to be best for them.

What brand are they?

If they don't stretch out enough, you can also take them into a boot shop and have them stretched.

Spray the leather inside with water to dampen them, and then wear them which will stretch them.. can also wet them lightly and stuff them with newspaper.. (old trick)..

For those who don't like me-- it's mind over matter; I don't mind - - and you don't matter.
