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 have been eyeing them for some time and got them as a Christmas present! (woop woop!!) Everyone I see wearing them looks so comfy. They look 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 in the fact that they weren’t “ready to wear” then set off on a hunt on how to break in Bean Boots.
