I am pleased to announce that Jessica has agreed to establish and host a brand new skating forum, configured like the SkateLog Forum, but with a new name and a new Web Site. This new forum is 100% owned and operated by Jessica.

Default softening the boots

I actually own two pairs of outdoor quads. One is an ankle boot that fits like a hightop sneaker. Its been quite comfortable from the onset...a reidell carrerra that I have owned for quite a few years now.

The second is a white boot (see my thread on changing the color from boring ole white!). Its nice looking but hurts my ankles and feels too stiff. Its just like a brand new pair of shoes only I want to skate for hours in the summer and not worry about its stiffness rubbing against my foot.

So is there something I can do to help this? If I skated in them as much as I have the other pair they would have been worn by now...they are leather by the way.

thanks

For new boots I always wear Ankle Booties in 3mm, no hurts, no scratches, feet always feel good also in stiff boots which well be smoother after weeks and months of wearing, than try it without the Ankle booties.

Lexol Leather Conditioner for softening, I would think.

I pulled out these quads last night...They have been sitting around for quite a few years...really nice looking and shame I never used them. But boy are they hard as a brick. They are Reidell but don't know which ones.

Anyway I will try the anke bootie thing...the leather softener and was also thinking of getting one of those shoe stretcher things. From the feel of it, these boots will take a while to soften.
