    I've recently brought a pair of Dr Martens, has anyone got any tips on how to break them in?

    You honestly have to keep on wearing them out, no matter how painful it will be. I got blisters with mine because I didn't know how to protect my feet but it's always good to wear thick socks so that the friction doesn't hurt your feet and you'll just have to ensure the pain for a temporary amount of time fortunately!

    If there's anything else you'd like to ask, just quote me by clicking thebutton and I'll try to help you out as soon as possible.

    the wet newspaper trick works wonders!
    you stuff them full of damp newspaper, really stuff them and then leave them 2/3 days for them to dry and remove it.

    OR try putting on your DMs, then getting a hairdryer and warm the shoes up for 10 - 20 mins. it helps the leather stretch.
