Bought a new pair of Justin Boots for the ranch I had tried them on at academy and they fit just fine. Ended up finding em online and ordered them because they were about 25$ cheaper. Well got them in last night and it was hell getting the right one on this morning! What do you guys normally do to loosen up a boot or boots?

Take them to a cobbler and have them stretched to fit. Usually $15

Wear them and get them wet. Walk in them wet until they dry and they will form to your foot better.

I always gave them a good soaking in rubbing alcohol, helped cure the inevitable blisters

Get some obenauf's. Cabelas carries it. It'll help loosen them up, also condition them if you go the water route.

Man, my last new pair for work fit great at the store and my first time to wear them I was on nights so I didn't walk much.. needless to say within a couple hours I couldn't stand to wear them anymore. I couldn't wear them long at all for a little while, but when I did I made sure I was on days, outside walking around in the summer heat. Once I did that, the heat and moisture allowed them to loosen up quickly.
