2 things you could try.

This works, not the funnest thing in the world, but it works.
Cut the toes off a couple pairs of thick garbage socks, put them over the toes of your bare feet then put on a pair of socks, put your boot on.
Here comes the fun part, toe punt something hard a few times, car tires are perfect, snotty kids work too. It works.

You could buy an insole like Superfeet.
I bought a pair of Burton Rulers 3 years ago & 1 of them fit way shorter in the toe than the other, the store I purchased them @ wouldn't let me exchange them.
I managed to bitch enough that they gave me a pair of Green Superfeet for free.

I couldn't see how this way thicker insole was going to help, surprisingly it did.
The bigger rigid arch, kept my foot from elongating when I cranked my boot up really tight.

Option 1 free
Option 2 $40
