but on a serious note, I wouldnt really fancy having wet boots, what if you actually need to wear them

edited because having urine wet boots makes me sound a bit of a twat.

grin and bare it mate, or get yourself a good set of insoles

line your boots with a plastic bag and then fill the bag with cooking oil heated to 36 degrees celsius, leave for a week and your boots will be sorted.

honest

or if your flush, buy a pair of issue boots before you go and wear them in a bit first
 
Foshy as has been said the only way to break your boots in is to use them ie walk or run in them.
 
after all the drill and boot rund they will be broken in

Can you actually do this?? I heard you'd get a right earful of the staff if you do?....

alternatively..
grow some testicles
and stop trying to find secret ways to break them in.
wear them everywhere
and give them a deep layer of polish, it'll soak in a make them more...nice.

No you can't, you will wear the pairs you get issued with.
 
drill, marching, boot runs, river runs, bft in boots, running at night with a pack and boots on, exercises (angry camping type)

This will break your boots in

You have a lot to learn.
 
Seriously one of the biggest problems is that youngsters joining these days have spent their lifes in trainers, no school shoes etc and their feet are soft. If you have time before you go and can afford it get a pair of boots and wear them as much as possible. You may not be able to take them in with you but your feet will at least be partially aclimatised to boots. Whatever happens good luck and enjoy it, even the "bad" bits will seem good when you look back on them.
