Oh, I know moleskin. Summer Encampment with the Civil Air Patrol, a week of nothing but combat boots traipsing through the woods as a teenager... I'm just a little suprised at the necessity of the break in; it's been ages since I've had to break in shoes. I mean, I could try to break in a pair of shoes I will only wear maybe once every couple months (I just don't do white shoes very often) and fuss with mole skin, etc, or just go with one of my other 9 pairs of shoes without that. Keep in mind that I'm also working with a few recent surgeries, so putting on socks is difficult for me at the moment, nevermind trying to apply mole skin or big bandaids, etc. This quarantine stuff has been great for recovery.There is a product called moleskin, just for this purpose. Quite a few shoe guys swear by it. I will chime in, I'm a shoe guy, and the proper size shoe won't cause that issue. It's hard to get the right size on an internet purchase, unless one has experience with the brand and last the shoe/boot was made on. I think size not right in OP's case.
