How long does it take for the leather to break in?Updated a year ago

We use thick, beefy leathers and our custom-made double tanning process allows the leather to be soft and supple which reduces the break-in period considerably. We suggest wearing your boots with thin socks around the house for 2 hours at a time, 4-5 times. This should be enough time for the leather to stretch enough and mold to your feet.

Note: Leather stretches in places where tension is applied. Thick, soft leathers prevent any over-stretching.
