.... after wearing it for less than 2 hours my skin behind my left foot tore like crazy.

Does this mean these are defective shoes? Should I stop wearing them?

Wait until your feet heal or else just use a plaster and then keep wearing them to break them in. DON'T GIVE UP

Keep wearing them. I had a pair of trainers that made the back of my heels actually bleed for the first couple of days. But they are fine now, really comfy.

You need to break into them. Wear the shoes with thick socks or a few pairs of socks if you don't have thick socks and walk around your house like that to break them in.

Yay me?



On a side note why do you always punctuate your posts with lol and lmao? It's super nerdy.

Because I'm a nerd. And how else am I supposed to communicate with people that I'm loling? I make myself laugh on here a lot

But these are a certain kind of shoes were you don't wear socks...?

Can i "break them" using my hand..?

It really depends on whether you have doubts about them being the right size shoe as well as how much you like them. Shoes shouldn't really be harming your feet and it's not something you should try to grin and bear.

If this is a regular problem, your left foot is probably half a size smaller or longer than your right one: you might consider seeing if shops let you buy two different size shoes.
Never had this problem with any other shoes. Store won't exchange because this is on sale...

I have boat shoes too! They used to always hurt the back of my foot as well. Considering how you don't wear them with socks, I'd just recommend wearing them with socks around the house or whatever? You only have to wear the socks so that you can break them in without hurting yourself. This will probably stretch your shoes as well, which should help breaking them in.
If not, just keep wearing them in public without socks and try to ignore the crucifying pain lmao. Plasters can help with this!

You're thinking about this too much. You literally just wear the shoes with thick socks inside your house, or if you don't have thick socks then wear a few pairs socks together. Go about your normal day at home with the shoes on. They aren't the kind of shoes you wear with socks outside unless you're going for the desperate hipster look, but you can wear them with socks inside your house. You can't break them in with your hands because your hands won't be wearing them.

Whatever you do. Do not wear trainer socks when your breaking shoes in. You will end up with blisters

ok ok it just tears my skin and makes it look like an infestation. I'll just wear socks to counter this. One of the posters said I'll get blisters if I were trainer socks... ?

My priority is comfort #1 =P

Does it stilll hurt when you wear it? How long did you wear it to "break" whatever it is that you had to break?

No, not anymore. I'm not sure, a couple of wears! Probably about 4 or 5 days of wearing them. The school shoes I bought at the start of the year hurt me for about a week, but after that it was fine. You just have to practice wearing them. But if you really think the pain isn't worth being able to wear them painlessly, don't wear them!!
