Any Way To Soften Leather?
I recently bought a pair of black leather desert boots, but I'm finding them incredibly uncomfortable to wear. Although I'm sure they are the right size, they dig into my heels and ankles and cut my skin, to the point where I don't want to wear them. I don't feel men should have to do what women do and compromise shoe comfort for style. I think the main problem is that because they are leather they don't have much give and are quite rigid. I have a pair of suede desert boots that don't cut my feet up so I'm guessing it's the rigidity of the leather that's doing it.
Other than waiting for them to loosen up by wearing them, is there any way of softening the leather?
