Stretching boots

I got a super cute pair of 'cowboy' boots yesterday. I had to have them ordered in because the size I tried on in the store was way too big and now this pair, I can't get the right one on, can't get my foot all the way I (gets stuck about where my foot would change angles to sit flat). Anyone have any tips on how to stretch it a bit. I know it will fit otherwise because the left one goes on and fits. Thanks!!!

 I don't remember what it's called but it's something to do with a stretchy .  Good luck.

Someone In another group told me to try a Tuna can as she has worked selling boots and learned this from farmers/ranchers.

I was going to suggest the Tuna can idea as well.  I had to do that to my left boot when I got mine a few years back. 

Lol I also had to say when I first read the subject line I totally misread it!!  I could not figure out why in the world you would want to stretch that until I reread it and saw that it said boots!!!

The tuna can worked and I was able to wear them. Was right going on but fit good once on.
