That's a great plan. Are you going with the white ones?

 

If you look at the pictures on Amazon, and zoom in, you can see how thick they are.

I went with Beige/Oatmeal. The Kudus are so oily that they end up brown soon enough anyway.

i have other #8s and they were never like this.

I wouldn't worry about the creasing if the boots fit, that's standard. you should stop wearing them if you may be sending them back, jcrew shouldn't sell them as new to someone else with that much creasing.

I would rather have a lose fitting shoe than a tight one. I can insole or thick sock a lose fitting shoe, tight ones NEVER get worn, not even to break them in.

I get what you are saying, but honestly, I've never had my shoes fit one day and not the next because of my feet growing or shrinking.

 

However, I am a firm believer in the Mac Break-in method.  In fact, I implemented it on a pair today.

Morning and evening, there are differences in how a shoe will fit.

Feet swell during the day. 

A shoe will be probably more snug if you first try it on before bed.

Maiden voyage of the LS tan suede LWBs today. These will definitely be getting a ton of wear, they're already starting to break in nicely after just walking around the house in them.
