    yeah, saw the sale pics and see they were worn previously ... boots will keep shape to the PO's foot/leg until worn for a while again ... can def try soaking in warm water and walking around for a while. not convenient, especially in cold weather, but may force some shape change.

    Any local shops near Boston that carry Gaerne?

    Walked around the house in the boots for 30 minutes last night and it does seem to be breaking in. There is hope after all!

    Put it on the boot dryer or just hair dryer to heat it up, then wear it around the house. It'll help speed up the process

    Great idea! I'm also considering the "shower technique". LOL

    Not necessarily "near" Boston but I am fairly certain that Freedom Cycle in Concord NH usually has a selection of Gaerne items
