Question Stretching boots

My boots are an odd pair. I got them on clearance, and so one has been tried on a multitude of times, while the other sat in the box. I also only tried on one at the store, since I just wanted to leave. As you can imagine, the other boot is a bit tighter.

So what can I do to stretch it so that it fits like the other?

I know a few stores that sell a spray product called "boot stretch". Not sure if you can buy it in Canada, but you can probably get it on the internet!

If you can get the boot on, paint the back of it with a little bit of water and wear it till it dry's. Or take it to a shoe/boot repair shop and ask them to stretch it bout 1/4-1/2 inch to make it more confortable.
