Ive already taken them to a shoe shop he told me he couldn't do anything about it cause of the thick plastic...
He recommended to speak to a Ice Skates seller, they could make them wider he told me, the only thing is i can't find any around close to me
But i figured i could take a board and saw it to the shape of my foot, or a bit wider, and crank it in the boot, and leave it like that for a feew weeks ( and have them in as i dont ride ) , and longer straps on that... i mean the fit is ALMOST perfect its just on the width, and i dont want to pay for a second pair of boots hehe

I don't think the SIDIs will get any wider. Which one hurts? The small one or the big uncle? Inner or outer side?
To make a ski boot of mine wider I built a let's call it "stretcher" once by using (now here comes the hard part to explane) two bolts sitting in a long sort of nut. I put this "stretcher" inside the boot and turned one bolt counter clock wise - so the whole thing got longer and made the boot wider ... got me?
This should work better than the board...
(Can't quite believe that your straps are too short...)

Ill start looking for a ski shop right away tomorrow monday.
Flabes, we do play hockey, but the hockeyshops are very far away from me, so its a pain getting there just to get the boot fixed
But the ski shop sounded sweet, and would be much easier finding, especially this time a year
I really dont want to buy new boots either, 1:st for the feel of the boot, its perfect, it fits perfect ( not just in width ) and i've always felt that im NOT very restrained in my techie 6's Pretty damned good boot, and strectching it in a ski skop wouldn't cost as much as buying a new boot wich comes to 2:nd part, throwing away another 300$ on a new boot, when the boots i got already is almost new is pointless Anyways Thank you all
