Lol true. That's just how I think though, I don't want to hurt his feelings. He knows nothing about horses or horse stuff or riding boots, and I can only imagine him sitting at the computer trying to order them.
I did try the soap trick, and I can now get my boots zipped up and down! They are still a little tough down by my ankle where I coildnt get the soap down in the groove real well, but once past that spot, they go up and down perfect. Posted via Mobile Device
I'm kinda lucky I can pretty much grab any size 9 shoe off a rack and they fit. Rarely do I have a problem.
I did wear my boots around the barn and in the snow to break them in. I don't think I could get a heavy pair of wool socks into them. Some of the lighter ones maybe but then I'd have no room for the toe warmers. My husband and daughter are both skiers so I raid their ski bags for the good ski socks and warmers. Works perfect.
