@sheepandbear:  What do you do in the morning to get ready? If your grooming habits are semi-lengthy I would suggest to do as I did and put on a pair of socks and wear the shoes while you are getting ready (cover with a towel to prevent stains/spills). Also, remove the bathroom carpet so you are standing on the actual floor. You can try wearing them while blow drying your hair too for added testing. Anything in one place for longer periods will work.

My daily hair and makeup routine takes about 30 minutes total. Standing in one place for that long is a good indicator of the comfort of a pair of shoes, especialy ones you are going to be wearing standing up at your ceremony.

Cowboy boots can take a loooooong time to be “comfy”. If they are real leather, you have to break them in. What I do with all of my cowboy boots is wear them for short periods of time, like to go grocery shopping or whatever, for about a month or two. Then I feel comfortable wearing them for hours upon hours. A lot of my “work” boots can’t be worn for work until they go through this breaking-in process.

Also, it helps if you buy cowboy boots that fit properly. They should be snug so your foot isn’t slipping and sliding (causing blisters) but obviously you don’t want them too tight.

@sheepandbear:  Ariat and Justin are my go to boots. I prefer them for work because they are super comfy, especially Ariat. Trust me, those are good boots. FI has steel toe Ariats too and I guess he’s had the hardest time getting comfortable in them, but that’s really because of the steel toe. I think you are fine. They will always take time to break in so don’t be discouraged if they hurt…just keep doing what you’re doing and take them off when they start bothering you.

ETA: We live on a ranch in the mountains and I wear those boots for everything.
