Stuffing them with newspaper will work fine since you will be storing them. If you were wearing them often, it would become a pain to keep unstuffing and restuffing with each use.
One tip when storing them that I found out the hard way when I stored a pair of boots in an unheated attic. They were there for the entire summer and the extreme heat contracted and dried the leather. I had to really recondition/re-break them in. I wouldn't store them in a unfinished basement either.
In any case, I wouldn't be surprised if they were a little tight next summer when you go to put them on so be sure to condition them well before use.
I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
It's not always what you say but what they hear.
