Are boots "stretchable"?

Hey y'all...

I bought some brand new Thirty Two Lashed back in 2012 (size 9). However, I didn't go snowboarding for 2 years because I simply got busy and the Tahoe snow was crap for the past two years.

Fast forward now, somehow my feet grew half a size and I'm pretty much jabbing my toes right up against the tip.

Is it possible to "stretch" a snowboard boot? I really don't want to invest another $100-200 just because my stupid feet grew half a size during my 2years hiatus... -.-

If it's not possible, holla at me if y'all want some barely used 2012 Thirty Two Lashed sized 9.

Thanks!

Get the liner heat molded with a toe cap on.

What about the actual boot itself? Will that give at all?

Thanks!

No. It doesn't matter. The liner can stretch out to almost a whole size. If that is confusing pull the liner out of the boot.

Good deal, going to use a blow-dryer and stick a shoe stretcher in the liner, thanks!

And you're not going to do shit to that liner. Go to a shop and get them heat molded.

Have a professional do it. A hair dryer isn't gonna do much.
