Experiencing discomfort with new boots can be disheartening, but rest assured that this discomfort doesn’t have to persist. Countless tested tips and tricks exist, proven by numerous boot wearers before you, that can have your feet pain free in no time!

Socks Will be Your Saviour 

For the initial wears, anticipate some discomfort, so it's advisable to prepare by wearing thick socks that provide protection for your feet. These socks not only shield your feet but also aid in stretching and softening the boots, speeding up the process of achieving your ideal fit.

Repeated Wear

During your initial outings, aim to wear your boots for a minimum of 2-3 hours. While this may seem like a lot, this consistent wear allows your body heat and moisture to gradually permeate the boots, softening the leather. This process, over time, enables our thoughtfully crafted DuoBoot to conform to the unique contours of your feet, ensuring a tailored, comfortable fit that feels just right.

Conditioning your Leather Boots

Leather conditioners and oils will help to soften the boots leather which in turn will help the boots mold to your feet. Additionally, conditioning not only aids in immediate comfort but also ensures long-term durability by safeguarding the boots from external elements. This maintenance ensures an extended lifespan for your boots, allowing you to love and enjoy them for longer.

 It’s a Waiting Game

Breaking in new boots often requires a good deal of patience. While it's easier said than done, it's important to be patient with the boots and understand that frequent wear is key to their comfort. Though it might feel frustrating initially, in the long run, your perseverance will pay off and your feet will appreciate the effort.
