I have purchased a new pair of Leather Knee High Boots (without trying them on - like it would make a difference anyway) - and I wanted to know if there is a way I can stretch the calf. I have quite large calves and I can't get the boots done up. I am in the process of losing 6 stone (I've lost 3 another 3 to go) so I think (and hope) that my legs will also reduce in size but at the moment, I can't wear these boots and I love them so much I don't want to have to return them if I think they will fit in later in the year (my weight loss if a quick process due to diet I'm on!). As I have said they are Leather but they are lined with soft material. I've heard that a blast with a hair dryer could do it is this right?
