    Worrying about the shoes? I was trying using my new boots but it is just catastrophic.. I can't shift! Any suggestion how to break in new boots?

    No offense but were those taken with a 1.3 megapixel camera underwater?

    Edited to add: to break in new boots you have to wear them as often as possible until they are broken in. No easy, no non-wearing way around it. Wear them around the house, wear them riding, even wear them to work. No other way to break them in except to wear them.

    I never walk around in my cross boots, unless I have to, they're for riding & armor.

    Adjust the shifter & get riding.

    If the boots were all comfy, you'd get very little protection. Don't get me wrong here, my boots are stiff as they were designed to be.

    Totally disagree.
    My Sidi crossfires were comfortable out of the box. But they have a pivot at the ankle which makes walking easier,
    They aren't hiking boots but I can at least walk around the pits or camp in them.

    As for breaking in boots, there's all sorts of ways to make them softer or more comfortable.

    If I have a pair of boots that hurt, I'll sit down in from the TV, watch a movie and just work those areas with my hands until they are a little softer. I've also used wood dowels, Spoons and pipes to give my boots more room.

    Oh and this is in the wrong sub forum.
