I understand that in theory new boots require "breaking in."
However, I would make the strong argument that it is in fact my legs that are accomodating the boots, not the other way around.
While I appreciate that the fine German craftsmanship that Konig ensures with every pair of torture devices, I feel as though my legs are being battle hardened and reshaped to accommodate the "extremely stiff" construction that is determined to retrain my ankle/heel position.
In conclusion, I have the oddest assortment of blisters and bruises from attempting to cajole the boots into my traditional way of riding.
Today I give up, they win, I bow down and vow never again to turn my tow out or jam my heel down like I might have to bound over an oxer at any moment.
Konig = King. I get it, I get it.....
