Default how to store new boots?

So, i just bought a new pair of riding boots, and since i wont get to use them for half a year i have to put them away until then. Would it be a good idea to lace the up really tight for a bit to try to break them in slightly? or should i just store them loosely like i would normally?

Id say dont lace them up really tight but dont leave them loose. Just enough for them to keep their shape

Lace up and store in a cool, dry area.

...and don't forget a few fabric sheets to keep them smelling good until next year! I do the same with my gloves too.

I usually keep mine out for a few days to make sure their totally dry then throw them in the box as others mentioned and throw them in the closet.

Also box my bindings, fold up all of my outer/inner gear and put it away in the corner with my boots.

That way i know where everything is when the season starts, no scrambling to look for missing binding bolts or where my gloves went...

So is it a bad idea to keep my bindings on my board?

No, a lot of people keep their bindings on their board. Just loosen the screws a little bit.
