Apparently, Isopropyl Alcohol mixed with 3 parts water helps stretch leather.Wear the thickest sock you can find (maybe even two), apply the Isopropyl Alcohol/water mix to the boot and put it on over the sock/s. Keep it on until dry. You may need more than one application.I would suggest a good treatment with dubbin and/or wax shoe polish afterwards.Just had a quick Google, you can buy http://www.google.co.uk/search?sourceid=navclient&aq=5&oq=leather+str&hl=en-GB&ie=UTF-8&rlz=1T4ADRA_enGB335GB335&q=leather+stretcher [Links inactive - To make links active and clickable, login or click here to register] from several places.
Both my boys say to put them on and walk through a tub of water get em good and wet wear them that day until they are dry... LOL says it does the job! LOL I do not know for sure how accurate that is but they are both boys who have worked in the woods and say thats how they all do it, except they use the river instead!! LOL.. sounds weird to me though!
