That's how I wear my Stows - good and tight, so much so that eventually that the eyelets eventually come together and the tongue is entirely hidden. The leather appears to stretch on the uppers during the break-in, so the coming together of the two parts of the quarter is a gradual process. Eventually, I end up with a well fitted boot that is extremely comfortable and molded to my leg and feet.Is this expected to reduce as the break in progresses? In other words, would the tongue soften so as to do away with its rubbing against the leg?

These came yesterday from Tredders. Snug fit with two pairs of socks so I think they are about perfect. No serious break in issues yet, wore them yesterday for a few hours no problem. Thick leather soles slipped on a slick floor as expected. I like the color but feel any wax or cream will darken them. Should I just wear them and see what happens or put some wax or whatever to protect them? I have seen some awful things happen to the finish of leather with the wrong product.
