How to break in boots?

Post by Sydney on Tue Aug 19, 2008 6:44 am

I bought myself a birthday present. Razz
A pair of brand new, shiny tall boots. They are SOOOO STIFF!!
I was finally able to find a pair that fit my large feet and small calf.
They are SUPER stiff. I had to climb up on a hay wagon last night to get on Indigo (whos only 15.3)
They were also slippery against the saddle when I cantered.

Anyone got any tips on something to un stiffen them and break them in quicker? I can still feel the creases in my legs from last night.

Ooh, is it your birthday today? Happy birthday! (for whenever it is!)

I'd use something softening on them... leather cream or similar. And just wear them lots (but not for so long that you get rubbed and sore).

It was yesterday on the 18th. Thanks Smile

I think i'll use my lexol conditioner on them and then wax the seams on them to soften them. It worked great for my half chaps when I found them in the spring in the bottom of my trunk all stiff and moldy and they are suede. I suggest that to anyone with roughout seats on leather saddles too!


EDIT: gaaah! My blundstones, I just discovered today are cracked across the sole just about where the ball of my foot is! I've had those boots for almost 8 years it's very upsetting!
