So I bought a pair of used combat boots cause I felt the need for some massive footwear to go with my massive balls and muscles. The first few days were sick, I curbstomped some minorities and overheard some offended hipsters talk about what would happen when a black guy spotted me in Nazi stompers (uh, nothing?), but recently they've developed a pinch. What happened is that the way the leather creases is causing it to push up against my foot near the ankle. It's too painful to wear the boots even for standing around looking fashionable now. Is there any way to fix the boots? I was thinking that getting the leather wet might allow me to reset the creases.

The dark secret is to just keep wearing the boots until they stop hurting. This usually takes a week or so, or at least it does with me.

Saddle soap will soften the leather and take the edge out of that crease. If you want to go Army hoo-wuh hardcore, you could sand them down, waterlog them, wear them for a few hours while walking around, then treat with saddle soap and polish.

Or, you could wear thicker socks for a few weeks while they break in.

So, the guy who thinks a $45 plaid shirt is a bargain, gets used combat boots from an Army-Navy surplus store? And then complains that they don't feel comfortable?

Does Ferragamo not make curbstompers anymore?

Aren't combat boots made with breathable fabrics that are more flexible now? Try to get some of these.

I used to love the army surplus store for boots. They were $20, last two years, and they were awesome for hackysack.

Mink oil

Neatsfoot oil in the boots and put vinegar on the bits of your skin where it rubs and hurts. After you take them off stuff them with newspaper.

Or do a 5 mile river run with full webbing carrying a long gun of some kind. cover them in polish put on thicker socks underneath and wear until they soften up. Keep poillishing until grey stops coming through.

My wardrobe is made up nearly entirely of either designer or thrift/surplus goods. So on any given day I'm wearing say, $200 pants and $200 shoes with a $5 shirt and $15 jacket. It's not about the price tag or the designer, it's about how good the clothng itself is.

what? why?

why are you such a weird asshole man-child about this stuff? The point of combat boots is that they're combat boots, you cant just go "Well those are too functional and militaristic for my combat boot athestic" without being a jerkoff.

To answer your question: Are you straight-lacing the boots all the way up? It is hateful, but it pulls them into their designed fit while they break in. It also helps if you blouse them but obviously this is what we like to call fashion backwards

I currently wear the boots that can kick anything (http://http://www.timberland.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2844954&cp=1779791.1761081.2187523&parentPage=family)

That's like saying the point of a pair of jeans is to look rugged and worn, so why would I hate this $250,000 piece of shit?

http://i157.photobucket.com/albums/t67/BullshidoTrail/gold1.jpg

Those combat boots are ugly. Objectively ugly, like the jeans I just posted. I wouldn't even describe them as "functional and militaristic" because they look like a combat boot you'd buy at the Oakley store. Compare that wonderful piece of contemporary design to this sexy boot:

http://i157.photobucket.com/albums/t67/BullshidoTrail/9357M1006_2_2.jpg

With its classic uppers and thin, low profile sole. I don't need the best boot for soldiering around Afghanistan fighting terrorists, I need the one that doesn't look like it was designed in the dark.

Uh, no. I was talking about your boots, and exactly where you felt the problem was. You're going about this all the wrong way. Are you expecting a combat boot fashinado to step in here and tell you how to fix your boots? (actually that would be pretty awesome and funny)

No, you don't wan't outer-space-oakley-shoe-boots. They are the furthest thing from "hipster doofus" you can get, branding the wearer as a consumerist neo-yokel. Or a cop.

They are, I must say, comfortable as fuck, not unlike jackcrocs.

With bona-fide combat boots, you just have to work the leather. It won't get old by itself. Like your dog, old timey combat boots must be walked.

I know, in all too much detail, exactly where the crease you describe is, and exactly what each step you take in them feels like.

Thick socks will alleviate your suffering. Over time, the boots will break in on their own.

Put a couple of band-aids over the raw spot on your ankle/foot and keep walking.

the band-aids take that immediate pressure off, and protect the exposed nerves. By the time you heal, the boots will be broken in if you wear them every day.

rub hard soap over the crease, it wont drag as much. Crease is bad but not as bad as the behind toe cap middle of the instep kind.

TheMightyMcClaw
6th April 10, 07:54 PM
While you're breaking the boots in, don't lace them all the way; leave the top eyelet or two unlaced. It'll make the stiffness of the leather less of a problem.
And then, yeah, wear them. Also, as someone who has owned a good many pairs of combat boots, the fabric portion Arjuna mentioned adds a lot to comfort, and does not detract from the aesthetic.
Anyways, have you put chainmail on them yet? Because until then, you're still a poser.

I find that particularly for winter boots, the taller and the water-proofer the better. Ankle boots are kinda bullshit for winter if you ask me, since snow will still get in through the top if you go trudging through a snowbank.
And if I can't go trudging through a snowbank, then really, what's the point?

If it's a blister, I've found that electrical tape helps prevent them. It really reduces the friction transfered to your skin.

BTW to get rid of blister, boil a needle with thread in it for ɀ 5 mins, pierce across blister with it after it cools, cut off needle with thread still through blister, the thread will let it drain but keep germs out, the skin will probably stick back except where the thread is so less exposed raw flesh.

I've put electrical tape right over blisters, and as long as they weren't torn to begin with, the problem went away within a day or two. Electrical tape, man. And then you can put it over your nipples and take pictures and post them on myspace. That's what the kids are into, right? The Myspace?
