    My old DS said the best way to break in boots is by kicking idiots/recruits/mongs ect up the dunghole!
  7. Breaking in Boots?

    Simple numb nuts. Wait till the staff have fecked off then hoy a brick through the window - voila, all the plasters you can eat.

    Not fecking rocket science is it.
  8. You should wear them around the house or short walks for a bit.

    You could try wearing the in the bath so they get shaped around your feet.
  9. You could also try uses oil to soften the leather although this is sometimes frowned upon as means leather can get too soft and split.

    The worst thing about army boots is they are not fitted properly.
  10. Wearing them alot helps.
  11. and hitting the back suporting strip with a hammer apparently.
  12. Naahhh! Go for a long run which includes a river crossing!
  13. some old engine oil on the pair you intend using for your best boots is the trick will make them so soft it stops the polish from cracking off so soon as you get leave take them down the local garage and pop them in the oil recycling barrel for a few hours whislt you have a few drinks in the local
