After much searching I actually found, last year, a pair of boots that would fit my fat calves, I was so delighted to find this rare breed, and the fact that they must of originally been custom made Effinghams, (was there even such a thing) that I overlooked the small draw back that they were actually a size to small
I've paid for it ever since and now I can't even pretend that they fit. If I take them to a shoe place can they stretch them a while size bigger, or will they laugh at being asked to do such a thing.
I've been looking at DIY stretchers on line and wondering if it would a possibility, has anyone got a whole size increase in a boot?
I'm not sure if I grew out of stupid or ran out of brave.

I've only had the calves of my boots stretched, not the foot. I don't know that they would be able to get length (as in going up a full size) but might be able to stretch to add width. The concern with stretching the foot would be possibly losing the integrity of the boot itself. You'd probably me more likely to blow out the boot at the seam where the boot attaches to the sole.
I too am part of the tree trunk leg population and buy in bulk when I find boots that fit. I bought a couple of pairs last year from Classic Saddlery that only needed minor tweaking to fit.
