Mechanically Stretching Boots?
I just bought some DC Field 09 boots and they're very comfortable except for in the toe. My big toes are right up against the toe and it had originally caused my left foot (slightly larger) a bit of discomfort after a couple of hours wear around the house. I went to Sport Chalet today to try on a couple other pairs of boots and to also have my current boots heated for an expedited break-in. The heating took a little pressure off my left big toe, but not completely.
Sport Chalet can also stretch me boot/s for a few bucks. It seems to me that all I need is a little more length, at least on the left, but there's no such thing as a sz.12.5 snd 13 is too large.
Has anyone had any experience with a mechanical stretch for their boots? If it's not a good idea I'll probably have to return them for some 32 Lashed, but I prefer the overall comfort of the DC Field aside from the toe-jam.
