My grandmother was super generous and bought me a pair of semicustom Konig boots for my birthday/christmas present. I just received them today and they are PAINFUL!! I knew they would be stiff and uncomfortable but they are digging into the back of my knees so badly I can't even walk down stairs in them!! Let alone think about mounting a horse in them. I have them on as we type but was wondering if anyone had any good tips for how to break these in more quickly than doing hours and hours of Chinese Torture Techniques at home.

1. Stiffened boots are not for walking. They are only for riding.

2. Go to the drug store and buy heel lifts. Put at least 3 pairs in to start. If you want to try something now, put a few of those little round tack sponges in each heel.
