LEATHER SOFTENING PRODUCT CAN HELP BREAK IN BOOTS

Ah, the boot, fall’s quintessential footwear. While it's fun to shop for all the textures, shapes, and heel heights, boots can nevertheless sometimes prove to be a pain to break in—specifically by causing blisters and bunions. In addition to these common side-effects of new footwear, podiatrist Jacqueline M. Sutera, DPM, cites ingrown nails, pinched nerves, neuromas, hammertoes, and worsening of corns as potential outcomes of wearing boots (or any shoe, really) that are too stiff or tight.

If you’ve already purchased a pair of boots...and you think you’re developing foot issues already...fear not! There are a few things you may be able to finagle. Remember, less-rigid materials have more give, making them more malleable. If you’ve bought leather boots, Dr. Sutera suggests buying a shoe leather softening product designed specifically to help make hard leather less rigid faster, rather than breaking them in the hard way (read: at the expense of your feet) over time.
