How to stretch boots?

I found a brand new pair of western boots at the Goodwill for $15. I can get the right one on real good, but the left one has always been a little bigger. I know that Cavenders will stretch boots if you buy from them, but does anyone know how to do it themselves?

Get them wet.

Seriously, unless they are dancing boots, or going to town and church boots, they are going to get wet anyway. So take the plunge.

Put on your normal boot socks (don't go thick) and squish those feet into them then soak them in a tub of water. If you are getting really wet morning dew on the grass, walk through the fields until they are soaked through.

Let them dry on your feet. (occasionally walk in them while they dry; do not force dry in front of heat.) They will be dried to your foot's natural form.

good luck.
