Wear them asap, and break them in. Walk around with them in your house for a couple of weeks. I made the mistake of not wearing them for a couple of months, and they developed creasing that wasn't there when I purchased them. I also put some RW Natural Boot oil, because I was worried about the creasing, and it just darkened them up.Wish I would of worn them from the start, and kept the awesome original color. Still look great though.
