I hate breaking in Dr Martens boots!

(Pic taken from
I bought these patent pink ones (mine are more neon than the ones in the picture) in TK Maxx two weeks ago. They were a total bargain, only €35 but I'm having serious trouble and foot pain trying to break them in. I always have problems with breaking in boots but these are particularly bad as they're a half size too small. I usually wear a 7 in Dr Martens, and although TK Maxx had a 'Size 7' sticker stuck on these, they're actually only a 6.5. Grr. 

I'll get there eventually, lots of thick socks and wearing them around the house will do the trick. I was planning on wearing them to Electric Picnic, the music festival I'm going to on Friday but I guess I'll have to stick to my old pair. 

 Anyone else have trouble breaking in boots?

  1. I feel your pain, I have a white pair identical to them. Took me a good month before they stopped giving me blisters. :(
