These shoes are a bit like mistresses. As long as my wife is not aware of their existence, I can enjoy them, caress with them and wear them. :)

So this may be stupid question or not but do you guys use Mac way to break in all your shoes or is it only applied to high end shoes. Meaning 400$ and up?

When I talked about my boots this way about two years ago, I was called weird.  Can't remember the thread.

 

What I had said was that the textural quality of boots was as important to me as the fit and looks because when I sit in meetings or whatever and cross my legs, I like feeling the touch of the leather because it's soothing and helps if the meeting is boring. That's one reason I don't have an obsession with shell as some others do.  I personally don't think the textural feel of shell is nearly as appealing as some really nice calf or even CXL.

I was just told I should have bought some $400+ Camina boots to use as beaters so it's all relative.

My problem is, that during the boring meeting I am just falling asleep regardless the shoes I wear. :rotflmao:

At least you guys are lucky enough to were that I get to stair and sit on tennis shoes. Only if soaks can come up with high end tennis comfortable shoes would be nice.

It's a shoe care regimen.  Go to the Alden thread and search for the Mac Method.

This seems to be reasonable method, good not only for your shoes, but also for your feet. To wear shoes just for few hours at first is reasonable. I try to do it in general with all my new shoes. But not wear them just on the carpet, it is not an issue from my point of view. Just try to avoid dusty or wet places ... .

It's where grown men follow ludicrous shoe care suggestions handed down from a weirdo.
