Breaking in boots

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Any tips on a fast and effective method of breaking in Britton assault boots, apart from just wearing the bu99ers?
  2. Try this link Breaking in.
  3. Bang them in a sink/bath full of hot water for abit, then empty and wear! A long as you can live through having wet feet for abit you'll find that they'll be broken in after about a day!
    Hope this helps.
  4. Put boots on with the insoles in and sock on you'll wear with them. Stand in bath full of hot water moving about, bending toes etc. Water will seep into boots slowly. Keep doing this for about an hour. Get out, boots off, stuff with newspaper, let dry slowly (days not hours, not in an airing cupboard or on radiator). Polish. Take paper out. Wear loads.
  5. Take your foot off the gas and stamp down hard on the middle pedal. If your vehicle doesn't have ABS, pump the brakes to avoid locking up and skidding.
    Hope this helps.
