AS WITH ANY OTHER SOLE MATE, IT TAKES A LITTLE TIME TO BECOME ACQUAINTED WITH ONE ANOTHER.
It's normal for new shoes to feel tight around the toes, rub at the heel and pinch a little bit with every step. Because leather is an organic material and it stretches as it adapts to your feet, every new pair of shoes requires a break-in period. This is standard practice for high-quality shoes and guarantees your comfort and satisfaction in the long run. The break-in time depends on your choice of style, sole, leather and personal preferences for how you like your shoes to feel, but it will typically be between 3 and 4 weeks. Because your comfort is important to us, as it allows you to be yourself without constraints, we have put together a week-by-week guide to help you out.
