Yeah, the Turk is right. You can try j-bars, shims, insoles, etc. etc. etc. but nothing will beat the feeling of a properly fitted boot. If they're not too worn you should be able to get a decent amount for them used.

I found I was riding a boot 1.5 sizes too big when I finally got the right fitting boots!!!
