It’s normal for new shoes to feel tight around the toes, rub at the heel and pinch a little bit with every step. Because leather is an organic material and it stretches as it adapts to your feet, every new pair of shoes requires a break-in period. This is standard practice for high-quality shoes and guarantees your comfort and satisfaction in the long run. The break-in time depends on your choice of style, sole, leather and personal preferences for how you like your shoes to feel, but it will typically be between 3 and 4 weeks. Because your comfort is important to us, as it allows you to be yourself without constraints, we have put together a week-by-week guide to help you out.
Wear your shoes for only a couple of hours every second day, in order to allow both your shoes and your feet to rest. Feet swell naturally during the day, so make sure to wear them both in the morning and in the afternoon. In the beginning, you can expect a bit of stiffness. We’ve used rubber soles for this very purpose. The rubber sole will give added comfort and durability that non-rubber soles do not.
Keep wearing your shoes every second day, increasing the time as the weeks go by. Depending on the thickness of the sole and your choice of leather, your shoes should start to feel more comfortable at this point. At the end of the third week, you should get a sense of how your shoes will feel when the break-in period is over.
By now, your shoes and feet have had time to get to know one another, and your shoes should fit like a glove. You are ready to walk your own path every single day.
These instructions are not any hard and fast rules but just an idea of how you can break in your new leather shoes in the most comfortable way. We have designed our shoes to give you the ultimate comfort and ease from Day 1. We have used the best raw materials without compromising on quality just to save some costs. Every shoe comes with a rubber outsole for extra comfort and durability. We have added a leather lining inside the entire shoe. We have also added extra padding on the tongue and the cushion of the shoes.
