Military boots are the new ideal fashion item, which will take you through any condition and weather. The one problem that we all seem to have with our boots is the pain they can cause in the first few weeks of wearing. I’m not saying I have found a complete cure…. but in my experience follow my next few steps and a guarantee it will ease the pain and stop your feet from burning!
First off upon purchasing your boots make sure you get a good fit, when you are shopping for a pair wear the right pair of socks, don’t but a pair that are too big because the leather does stretch. Coincidentally this does not mean you can buy a pair that is a bit on the tight side.
Once you get your shoes home, be sure to wear them immediately. However do not go outside in them, keep them on for a couple of hours, wear them on different surface levels such as carpet, hardwood flooring, floor tiles, and even laminate. After a couple of hours if you are not sure about the fit you can then take the shoes back to the shop and change size.
After your happy with the fit of your boots, flex the leather on them, try to bend the leather as much as possible, loosen the laces and style your boots to suit you. In most cases the heel is finished in double leather and this is the area that will give you most of your problems.
Good Luck, let me know if this method works for you, it also works great on Doc Martens!
