If you haven’t been living under a rock for at least a month, you have probably heard about Bean Boots. Doesn’t sound familiar? Well, then there is a good chance you have at least seen those leather boots with rubber soles. LL Bean is, in my opinion, the most popular brand for this type of shoe (hence the name “Bean Boot”), but so many shoe brands have taken on this trend as well. Over the past year or so, it seems as if they have exploded in popularity! So since we’re all getting into the hype on this trend, it’s probably a good idea to figure out how to break in bean boots.
I’d been eyeing them for some time before I got them as a Christmas present last year! (woop woop!!) Everyone I saw wearing them looked so comfy and I wanted mine to feel like that too. They lare so versatile and easily worn with anything, everywhere.
Well, that’s what I thought until I first tried my gift on. Holy crap! These boots did not feel at all as comfy as the ones in the store. Because no one had worn them in yet, the leather was so stiff I could barely walk. So, I took about 5 seconds to be discouraged about the fact that they weren’t “ready to wear” then set off on a hunt on how to break in Bean Boots.
