    Wear them around the house to break them in. They shouldn’t get dirty that way. Otherwise they will be extremely uncomfortable which is the last thing you want.

    I definitely need to break mine in.  They’re pretty comfy, but they’re strappy, so the straps dig in a little bit right now.  I’m just breaking them in by wearing them around the house, so that they don’t get dirty before the wedding.

    I’m wearing them around the house and up and down my stairs – but I’m trying hard to make sure I only walk on carpet – I don’t want to scuff them!

    I broke in mine by taking (several) dance lessons in them.  They were still a little uncomfortable, & they got a little dirty (not much), but who cares-they’re under a long dress.

    I’m also wearing mine around the house (once I get them…on order).  The sales lady at the salon said to have them on even if you’re sitting on the couch and not even walking that much in them will help a lot.  She also said to scuff the bottoms up just a little to prevent slipping, as most dress/formal shoes are really slick when you first purchase them.

    I wore them to someone else wedding…. I bought them that weekend for my wedding but thought I’d try them out at hers. lol

    It’s soooo important to wear in new shoes or else you risk some serious blisters & terrible pain!

    I wanted to break mine in, but like you, I didn’t want them to get dirty, so I wore them at all of our dance classes before the wedding and that worked really well! I wore regular “street shoes” to the studio, and once we were inside I switched into my wedding shoes and wore them for the lesson. It was also great because I got used to dancing in them.

    For sure, I’m breaking in my wedding shoes.  I face the same dilemma as you – I don’t want to scuff up the bottom of my shoes.  But, I know that if I don’t I’m not going to feel my toes at the end of the night or be able to walk very far in them.  Someone suggested I wear thick socks to strecth them out a little – I’m going to do so- and occassionally, I plan on wearing them around the house.
