You can try adding an elastic gore in to stretch them out a bit; I don't have any photos of an example, but essentially you'd cut a slit from the top of the boot down a couple inches (or possibly further- always best to not cut enough at first than too much and ruin it) and sew in a piece of elastic on the inside side to allow the boots to stretch out without losing their shape.
