Boot Stretching

OKAY! Wasn't sure where to put this thread so it would be seen. Long story short I saw these boots at Midwest Horse Fair, on sale at that and had to buy them to go with all my summer riding wear, and dance outfits.



Now, the problem. I have larger calves from riding they're not super tight, but they do squeeze. I want to stretch them just the slightest.. I'd like to wear them with skinny jeans, and be able to slide them on without a problem.

I've heard you can use Isopropyl Alcohol to stretch them, has anyone tried this? Does the old bathtub method work? I've never been confident enough to buy a pair of boots like these. I'm just nervous as all get out, I don't want to sell them because I can't get my stinkin' calf in them. I don't want to ruin them either.

Exercising and losing weight has done nothing, dropped 15 pounds and now my calves are even more toned, especially with the riding I've been doing lately.

HELP!

Oh, they're gorgeous. I wish someone had answered you. I have a pair I need to stretch, and have never heard of using alcohol. How does that work, as in how do you apply it?
