    I cannot take my boots off

    My boots were so wet and smelled so bad after 4 out of the last 5 days of walking in pooring down rain that I left them in the bus station in Santiago and just wore my Tevas for the travel home. They were never going to dry out before my flight home so I left them in Spain.

    Breaking in shoes and boots

    If they don't feel good in the store, no amount of "breaking in" will help. Try on as many different kinds and sizes, don't look at color or style, let your feet tell you, as you will find one that will just feel awesome.
