I bought a new pair of boots about 3 or 4 years and that I've only used a handful of times. Unfortunately they're just too tight (tighter than they should be) and my toes hit the front a little bit. After a couple of hours of skiing this way it gets painful.
My local ski shop says they've got some machine that for $75-$150 (depending) can somehow stretch it out and increase the size and make it "the most comfortable fitting boot I own". Question is, do these machines really work? If so, does it last, or will they contract again within a year?
