Default Any way to soften up stiff boots?

So near the end of last season I bought a pair of celsius cirrus because I got them for a good price, but I find them too stiff for park riding, which is what I mostly do. Is there any way to soften them up besides just keep riding them? Thanks

too stiff??? really? i own those and thought they were perfect right out of the box and got really soft after like a solid month of riding them. the best way to break boots in is just walk around in them. wear them around the house, do squats in them, whatever.

Ya I thought that was what I was just going to do. My last pair of boots were like noodles and I liked it that way(they could have been a little stiffer though)

Outside of just not tying them up super tight which could result in an injury

Weird, I tried them on at a shop and they weren't stiff in my opinion. But yeah, keep using them and they will soften up.

my friend did this once and mustve looked rediculous...

he took his boots, put them on, wore them to a sauna (the hot steam room shit) and literally walked in circles and like jumped up and down in there. softened and molded to his feet. thats just what he said though, hes insane.

if i were you, wear them around the house.

Haha, I wish I was able to see that! Damn, I don't even want to know how bad his feet stank afterwards lol.

I third the idea that you should wear them around the house.

Wow that's pretty hilarious. You can walk around the house with them I guess, but probably the only thing that really gonna soften em up is agressive riding.
