    I walked at least ten miles throughout Boston the day after I got the cherry gt's--if they broke in at all at that point I couldn't tell.

    Oh yeah, I'm not sure how much my shoe polish contributed but after adding up many hours worth of buffing the uppers have managed to become glossy and stay that way. I found that with enough buffing you can also make crease marks disappear. There is one permanent scuff mark on the toe that was made very early on before applying leather preservative or the polish, so it seems that the sooner you do these things, the more likely your wear on the shoe will be reversible.

    Just thought I'd post a quick pick of my GT's. Got them about a week ago cuz somebody ordered them from my store (i work at Schnee's boots and shoes in Bozeman), but they were to large for them. They happened to fit me perfectly (wear 8.5 clarks db's, these are 8's) so I decided to go for it. Gotta love employee discount. Toes got scuffed today in the machining shop on campus, but nothing a little polish/conditioner can't take care of.

    I followed the meausuring guide in this thread and I bought the boots in the same size as my converse chucks and clarkd db. Everytime I walk my feet comes out a little so I tought it might be because its too big.

    Did you add an insole? Do you wear boot socks? These things make a world of difference.

    depends what color. They use different leather on different colors. The cherry GTS are a bitch to break in.
    black. and like i stated: one day.
    Don't be a douche. I've had several pairs of the same model of work boots after they wear out and each takes a different period of time to break in.
    and your point is?

    The point is that some people may have different experiences than you with the same product. Maybe you have skinny-ass feet. A wider foot would require a longer break-in period, especially so with GT's.
