Tight Leather Boots
Is it possible for me to stretch my leather boots to make them fit better in the width - 3 hours on foot patrol as a Police Officer have given me wonderful blood blisters!!

A. Take a look at the answer to Wide Walking and Hiking Boots which might help.
A. Had similar problems when in forces. Wear your boots while walking in a stream for a good while and get them really wet. Stuff boots as tightly as possible with newspaper and leave to dry in botom of airing cupbaord or similar. Important to cram paper into boots very tightly and lace up fully prior to drying.
