Don’t do it yourself, go to a cobbler. A good one should be able to tell you if it is possible to stretch as much as you need.

Always go to a show repair place! They do wonders!! Sometimes you have to convince them to do what you specifically need done. But they can usually do things you wouldn’t even know were possible, shoe-wise, of course :)

Wide feet?

I stretch using stretchers and they are a miracle. Picked up a good set on amazon and broke in multiple boots with them as well as sons soccer cleats.
