Boots!

#1
Just been issued my kit. I have had issue boots before (when i was a space cadet) however, this was a long while ago & they were not used very intensively.

Just wanted to know the quickest & most effective way of wearing them in & softening them up a bit!?

Any input would be great.

Cheers!

Let them soak in your own piss for a full day.
I’m not joking, it softens the leather.

He's not wrong. Fill them (as much as you can) with urine, Put something like a small sandwhich bag over the top of each boot and secure with an elastic band. Put them in the airing cupboard for about 24 hrs. After that put them on while they are still wet and walk around in them for a whole day.
Not only will this break the boots in but will help to harden your feet.

No blisters Ever.

You could try the old fashioned method and actually wear them and yomp in them. There not exactly Boots-Directly Molded Sole are they?


'Kin yoof of today dont know they are born.

Hmm. Buy some Lowas instead - worked for me... apart from the ankle problems, but hey! they just let me feel better about my knees.

Go for a few 'walks' in long, wet grass. Soaking boots drying on you will soon break in, believe me.


and you won't stink of P)ss , either :)

You can get the same results if you forego the stinky method of urinating in them and just dump the boots in a sinkful of hot water with two or three drops of washing-up liquid added. Weight them down so that they're fully immersed and leave them there until the water goes cold. Then take them out, shake them off a bit and put them on with thick socks, lacing them as tight as they'll go. Then go for a 30-minute tab in them. Try and do as many bending exercises as you can, paying particular attention to stretching your toes out in front of you. That'll perhaps save you screwing up your Achilles tendon later. Leave them to dry naturally.
Works every time for me.

Masterbate all over your boots and rub it into the leather... it will soften them right up.
Just because that worked on your bung hole, doesn’t mean it will work on boots

freak :roll:

take as many laxatives as possible, ease springs, fill your boots up until they're toppers and launch them at the nearest para or bootie you can find. And in your own time, RUN.

Nooo neatsfoot wrecked mine! Or was that dubbin? Or wax? Or some other concoction? Or were they just fcuked already? Oh well...

Best thing is to wear them in the bath, water hot as you can stand it for as long as you can be bothered. Spend the rest of the day walking around in them then leave them dry naturally. Remember to be wearing your issue socks you'll be wearing when you're in the field. At least it works for me!

How come urines supposed to soften leather, but harden skin? How does that work!

The new boots are "waffer thin" and soft anyway. Just walk round a bit in them and you'l be fine.

However, you are new and perhaps a tad gullible. Therefore; go and swamp in your boots. I understand that if you nip one out in them that also helps.

Have you tried them on at all? You might find that they don't need anything at all, I've had no problems with my boots right from day one - although I'm used to wearing heavier boots (Steel-toe-capped saftey boots as worn by construciton workers - cheaper than proper motorbike boots and a lot sturdier too) to I'm slightly more conditioned to it.
