Agree that moleskin would work on corn/callouses, but there is very little moleskin can do when the leather is digging into the tendon of the big toe.

Pretty much identical post to my first Styleforum post about a year ago. After initial alarm at similar wear on my ptb on their maiden voyage in a Boston winter, my shoes have broken in nicely. My advice is to wear and enjoy your stuff (no toe/heel taps) and just get them resoled when the time comes. Shoes look great, by the way!

Thin coat of AE chili.

I have used a band-aid before with success, but I suppose it depends on the severity of the pain (in my case, fairly minimal).

Cardboard sounds terrifically uncomfortable, but whatever works ....

I've also heard that the horses are not slimply used just for the shell; that they are old work horses that die of old age/sickness... afaik

 

A couple of years ago, I asked Nick at Horween about Shell leather - he said that the leather they use is a byproduct of the food industry - so, no, they aren't using the leather from horses that have simply died of old age or sickness

Rancourts provide more arch support than Quoddys  - I have a pair of each and find the Rancourts more comfortable

Both make nice looking, quality boat shoes

Have a cobbler do it or do it yourself with coarse sandpaper. I have removed dark edging before, but not on 8 chukkas.

Go ahead and post!

 

Also, do you use shoe trees?

 

Finally, I like the suggestion of wearing something stiff over the tendon the crease bites into.  I also find if you move more vigorously (I'm not saying play a game of football, but maybe some brisk walking/turning) the break in procedure can accelerate due to the increased pressures/forces on the shoe).
