What about using neoprine...you know the stuff that wetsuits are made of. I think that would work great in the boots.

The neoprene would be expensive and not stretchy enough over that small a space. Your best bet is wizardofflight's suggestion. I work professionally in the costume garment field, and I can tell you from experience it's difficult to find elastic that wide. If you can't purchase it directly, you may want to look for objects (such as the lumbar support belt) that have it, so you can scavenge it.
