All you need are thick socks (athletic, heavy wool, multiple socks depending on how much you need to stretch) and a hair dryer. Don't do this procedure if your shoes are plastic or synthetic as they'll melt.
Set the hair dryer on hot. Heat up areas one at a time for 20 - 30 seconds. You can do this procedure multiple times as the stiffer the leather, the more you have to hold it. You don't want to old directly on the leather as to not burn it. Walk around after getting hot. Walk until it cools down. Repeat to the other side.
