I guess it depends mostly which direction you are talking about them being tight. You will get some width out of most leather shoes of any quality. How much and how painful it will be depends on the hide used, tanning process, and shoe construction. Standard stuff I have not had stretch out on me more than desired. If your toes are pinched, that will not get better. Try different socks. I can dial in a near perfect fit for all of my leather shoes by matching the socks, and it helps with sliding too depending on the insole.
