Need help relaxing a boot's fit.

I have Sidi Corsas. The left foot fits absolutely perfect but the right foot is a little snug in the toe area. I removed the sole and it helped a lot. Its still a little snug. Does anyone have any suggestions outside of new boots? There has got to be a way to "stretch" them a little.

Everytime you are not wearing them, stuff'em with tick socks like haines .. shove the cloth tight in.. give them plenty of time to stretch

My dad told me a few times when I was still a kid, that some people would fill the boot/shoe with dry corn (not the canned one.....please lol) then pour water, the corn would expand a little and make the show/boot supple.

not really, because you need a small amount of oil too, AND only one specie of corn actually pops when heated.

Interesting. Ill try anything. These boots were pricey. Not so sure about pouring water in them. How much water are we talking?

I will also try witchdoctor's suggestion.
