Has anyone ever had tall boots stretched to fit?

Apparently even "wide-calf" boots are too narrow for my freakishly large calves. I found a pair that I like that are maybe 1/2 to 1 inch too small at the top. I have heard of people getting a shoemaker (cobbler?) to stretch boots to fit, but I don't know of anyone who has actually tried it or what the results are. Anyone? These were not cheap boots so I really don't want to ruin them for nothing.
Extra, super, mega bonus points if you can recommend someone in the DC/NoVA area.
(Or maybe I should just try to stretch them myself through wearing them?)
