Breaking In…


How long does it take?

For my shoes to fit without mistake,

They are cutting into my ankles,

Unless I wear them loose,

I cannot forever take this abuse…L


I just bought them today,

Wore them but one night,

They do for sure keep me dry,

And look pretty good to, but still I do sigh…L


Never can I seem to find the right fit,

My right foot being thinner than my left, SHIT!

Figured if I bought a more expensive product,

My shoes would not have to be again thrown away, yes chucked…J


Will just have to let them wear in,

For now much to my chagrin,

Eventually I am sure I will be able to again wear a grin,

If not then I will have to be able to then “take it on the shin…”J

Us big feet guys have a problem finding shoes that fit. I had the same problem with a pair of shoes I brought. Should have taken them back. G

Barefoot is the only way to fly, Eddie M... it's always a perfect fit! katy xox p.s. Rebocks are a close 2nd, if you're into spending vast amounts of money on shoes. (grin)

Awwwwww don't I know the suffering well...good advise!!

Put a thick sock or two on....wet the socks with menthelated spiritus
and put on the need to walk around..just keep it on til the sock is will never suffer again...even helps for feet thats burning....some shoes does feel like they are hot know that "soleburning" feeling!! The menthelated spiritus...takes that sting out of the leather!!
If you do not want to put the shoen on use a bottle or sometning to stretch the shoe!!
Love Tinka
