These boots aint made for walking

Banned
I've got a new pair of boots from work, they are top of the range Dr Martins, but the high leg on them (like army boots) are cutting into my leg. I'm usually quite a toughty rough as assholes type bloke, but I'm being a right girly with these cos they feel like they are slowly cutting my leg off at the ankle.

Now my friend has got into a warm bath with his on, so he says, as this is meant to soften them, but I dont know if he's taking the pee. Any help will be appreciated.

BTW, I cant take them back cos I've used them for 2 weeks now

You big girl :roll:

These do have a 'break-in' period .................. can they be loosened at all ?
or you could wear a plaster on your leg where they're rubbing.

I have extremely hairy legs, if I put a plaster on, I would give myself a waxing when I removed it :lol: prefer to avoid more self inflicted pain :giggle:

Yep

yes be sure to post the pic on here lol.

Rub baby oil round the top of the boot to soften the leather

mark out the place on the boot where its causing the most miscomfort then stick some padding on it, even stick a plaster to that if u have to, i used to have big boots didnt really end up wearing them much but they all have to b worn in and it can b a tad painful at the beginning.

You big wuss !!!!! ;-)

Grin and bear it mate, walk around in them as much as possible and they'll soon become comfy.

stop moaning..and be a man..take the pain.....:giggle:



looooooool, I just love the sympathy :roll:

As some people have mentioned, put a plaster on the heel. If not, then just stretch it to make the opening bigger.

Oooo, really?

wear a long pair of socks that go over the top of your boots.... won't look great but will stop them rubbing whilst you're breaking them in...... or put plasters around the top of the boots
