get smart: how long did it take you to break your gt 1911 in? I got my pair a week ago and are trying to wear them as much as possible but they're killing my ankles man. I'm trying to man up but I haven't worn them for a few days now and whenever I think about it I feel the pain. I love looking at them though.
^^ I hear you....they killed my ankles too. I think I wore them about 4x/week and they finally broke in after 2 weeks or so. I just put a bandaid at the rubbing spot and it made the discomfort lessen. I know shoes shouldnt be that bad breaking in, but they are so comfortable now it's hard to believe they hurt as much as they did when I first got them.
one more quick question before I commit... I really like the look of the broken-in toe like in the picture below. Will the GT's break-in like this? I haven't been able to find any picture of a well worn pair.
I like them both. However, I placed an order for the SD about a month ago. I like the tall heel of the SD. The tall heel is supposed to create a more comfortable boot as your foot is angled downward. I ordered the doublesole and will probably add a Vibram 705 sole after they arrive.
