    Breaking in period sucks ass & it's never a good idea to walk around on wood floor with smooth brand new leather sole.

    Condition them or use shoe stretching liquids will help easing the initial wear.

    Won't help forming a footbed though, that does take several hikes.

    Not that matters for the collectors with shoes so unworn that there can be no footbeds.

    Love the choice! For anyone who wants to try out G&G, it should be a requirement to make the first pair a st James

    I've been giving some thought to a suede pair recently. Not sure if I'd want it in polo or something darker though.
