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.
excellent combo sir.
just got cap toe #8 boots from j crew. ive worn them for a literally 5 minutes as they are the first barrie ive owned. extreme whitening where the crease will be. i want to wear them longer indoors to make sure the fit is right but im worried that if i wear them anymore i wont be able to return them if fit is an issue!
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.
The idea is that your feet grow and shrink, so the 3 day rule allows you to experience a variety of conditions. I do agree that this may not take this much experimentation, but equally important, for double leather soles, this method allows the sole to flex, which reduces toe wear once you take the shoes to the pavement. Try not using this method and you'll quickly notice a very uneven tread pattern on your double leather sole bottoms, whereby there is excess wear in the toe and heel due to lack of flexion.
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.
