spray to get into tight boots

Hello All!
Years ago, I bought a spray in a tack store that allowed me to get into and out of my snug field boots when sprayed inside the boot. After a day of showing, there was still a slipperiness that made them come off easily, even if the summer heat made the boots slightly damp inside. I don't remember what it was called, but I think it was some sort of a silicone spray. I don't want to stretch the boots because they're really comfy once I'm into them.
Does anybody know of the product, and where it's available?
Thanks much for any input.

You know....sometimes you just have to admit it is time to get new boots. Last week I finally decided I will never comfortably be able to wear my vogel custom newmarket boots again;

I blame it on running...(yeah, right!)

I sold them to another trainer for a screaming deal <sob>

Thank you sooooo much, VT Trail Trotters--I also had done a search, but I guess my wording was wrong! I tried "silicone spray," "spray lubricant," and a couple other ways but didn't come up with what you found---and it's JUST what I was looking for.

Wow, never heard of it. Great idea. I remember once in the 'olden' days, I had a friend who dressed up as a english horse back rider as a kid for halloween, and she had on these tall boots, and they were too small for her. She got one off, but she couldn't get the other off. I remember quite clearly as she clung onto a railing on the end of a ramp while like 5 people held onto her boot to try to pull it off... She was quite litterally clinging for her life.. Still makes me laugh. She had to cut the boot off with scissors, it was a cheap rubber kind.

Casey--Funny story! But did you know how you get off boots when a boot jack isn't available? The rider in the boots sits on a solid chair and puts his/her leg straight out. Then someone straddles the leg with his/her back to the rider, bending over and cupping both hands at the heel of the boot. THEN, while the helper is pulling, the rider puts his/her other foot on the helper's butt and pushes! The push seems to be the important part!!!

Try armor all,, or some boots that fit. I'm thinking if you need lube to get your boots on something aint right.

You really have to be careful if boots are that tight. As the day wears on, legs tend to retain fluids and swell. This could cause a tamponade" effect which could dangerously compromise circulation in the leg. I have had a boot cut off in the past, and it was not a cheaper rubber one. I couldn't pull it off after a day foxhunting. My nice patent leather tops were trashed. I knew it had to be cut off fast as I was losing feeling in the leg.

Thanks to all. To those who advised "getting boots that fit." They're Dehners, custom fitted for me, and what makes them difficult to get out of without the spray is the suction effect, not a poor fit!
