Recently I've bought a pair of boots, but have unfortunately miscalculated the width of the shaft. I bought these boots online off of ebay and they stated that the shaft was 16'' or so they claimed. My calves are 15'' at the widest part and these boots seem to be atleast 1'' too small. Is there a way I can get these to fit me snuggly ? They're zipp up boots, and I hear that if you take a blow dryer to them, they'll stretch just a bit. The thing is, they're not real leather at all rather they are SYNTHETIC. Very nice.. : 3 They're white too.. i love these boots ! I'll post pictures of them later when I get a chance to take them. Please help !
