Best way to break boots in

#4
Put them straight on out of the box and go for a long tab. Don't wear any socks the first time though as it allows the boots to mould to the shape of your feet.

You break boots in the same way as you would a young filly; mit faust und mit doppel mit faust!

Hot water, wear them laced up tight (wel, tightish) and walk in them.

Also, use neetsfoot oil, including inside, and let it soak into the leather. Flex the leather lots with your hands too. Neetsfoot oil is a traditional thing, you can even look it up, but expect a hard job to get them shiney for a while.

Breaking in boots is like making love to a beautiful woman,my mate tony told me that.
No, no it isn't.

Do it the Sven Hassel way with lots of urine, dead Soviets and SS Panzers roaring all over the place.

Or just wear them for longer and longer periods until they stop hurting.

Serious Note: Do modern boots need breaking in?? Even in the mid eighties if I got a pair of new boots I would lace them up and lead on, no problems. Mind you, I was a Cold War Warrior and therefore uber hard.
