Breaking in New Boots

I bought a pair of new boots a while back. I started to wear them yesterday. I tried wearing them around the house but that hurt. I rode them yesterday and they were like boots from hell. It was foot torture. Today was the same story.

How long does it take to break them in? Should it hurt like hell or just a little?

Generally roughly 5 days.

I just heat molded my Kaijus to speed up the break in process. The first day, some of my toes on my left foot went numb after riding for a few hours. Day 2, I could tell they were slowly breaking in, no pain anywhere. Day 3, they were like my old Kaijus.

Wearing them around the house isn't going to do anything TBH. You're going to need to ride/flex them to break them in fully.

Where do your feet hurt?

Modern boots don't really break in where they go from hurting to fitting well... they usually go from being a tiny bit stiff, cozy to a little looser and softer - but it is a small difference.

Without knowing how you picked the boot... did the boots fit you to begin with?

They fit snugly and where the same size as another pair I owned that were the same model. I tried on 4 different pairs. They may be to small. They hurt my entire foot.
