Imagine that you just found the perfect outfit to go with your brand new pair of boots, except that there is one problem – you have no time to break them in.
In order to avoid the age old problem that women everywhere have to deal with, speed up the breaking-in process of your boots while avoiding any discomfort that wearing them those first couple of times might incur. After all, a new season means a whole new wardrobe, so don’t let anything take away from the excitement of getting to rock a brand new pair of fall boots.
Break in your boots with these easy tips from Sheplers and the only thing that you will have to worry about is what outfit to pair them with.
- Fill two plastic gallon bags halfway with water and zip them tight. Make sure that all of the extra air is squeezed out and then place them in your shoes. Afterwards, place your boots in the freezer overnight. Since water expands as it turns into ice, it will stretch out the leather, making them that much more comfortable when you go to wear them for the first time.
- Cut down on potential friction and layer on two pairs of socks when you first wear your boots. The extra layer of socks will help stretch out your boots, as well as keep your feet as comfortable as possible.
