Can my too wide field boots be fixed?

So I got some zip up field boots for showing last year. The calf was a little big on me, but not anything to noticeable. Anyway, I lost 25 lbs and now my boots are so big in the calf that I can fit my whole hand up to my wrist with my boots on That's going to be very noticeable in the show ring.

There is a leather guy in my area who might be able to fix them. But he's more of a general cobbler. So I don't think he would know to much about what they should look like when properly fit. Is there a professional company I could send them to to take in the calf? Or am I stuck with giant calf eating boots this season?

Well first of all,I would like to congratulate you on loosing 25 pounds...Congrats!

And try looking on google for a picture of someone wearing them and take them to the guy?

Hrmm, that's tough. I know its possible to take out too tight boots, but for those that are too loose, you'd have to move the whole back seam.
Might be cheaper just to buy a new pair, honestly.

Congrats on losing the weight! Maybe have the cobbler take them in and add zippers? If you don't want that, it might be cheaper to buy a new pair of boots that fit well. You can still take your current boots to the cobbler and have them taken in - and you can use them for schooling. Or just sell them on eBay.

I would try to sell your old boats and get a better fitting pair. It may be tough to get them taken in and you may have to spend more money then what it is worth.
