  When referring to "break-in" for shoes, what aspect specifically are we discussing? I've found that some of my shoes have a stiffer sole that does not become pliable until (as Gus mentioned) it has been put through its paces (haha) in various weather. Other shoes I find the leather of the upper taking time to really reach its potential in terms of suppleness. I wonder what aspects of construction and materials determine the time a shoe requires to "break in," and whether...

BNIB Margiela GATs in my signature Size 45.
Did you guys size down for the gray plaid?
