Same story here- what to do depends on they type of boots and if both the length and/or width have "shrunk" -I found my feet widened more than they got longer.
If both length and width "grew"- time to repeal and replace.
I have a few where it is was just the width- I bought a professional quality stretcher from Amazon (about 50 bucks)- they suggest soaking with stretching liquid (don't buy it- just mix rubbing alcohol and water), tightening the device and leaving it for 8 hours- I tightened them as much as possible, left them a day, tightened further, kept this up for a week- even the Wescos widened enough - the ones where my toe hit the front went on ebay..
BTW- stretching devices for wescos, loggers etc are different than the ones for cowboy boots..
