The long boots were a dead loss. They are so stiff I couldn't easily change gear. Heading to Newcastle on Sunday I was less than 1 kilometre from home before I had to return to change to the shorter Aldi boots.

Any hints about getting new boots to flex better at the ankle?

Wear them around the house for a few weeks. I had to do it for my boots although they weren't ALDI.

not sure mate but I always thought that the beeswax type of leather dressing stuff always made leather more supple ...might have to apply it a few times to take effect ....but wondering if in fact it is leather at all ...many leather looking products these days are justa LAYER OF LEATHER OVER SOMETHING ELSE ....


make of that what you will ...but recent leather shoes were some kind of cloth under a gloss layer of very thin leather ...fell apart after a good soaking

additionally there aremany different grades of leather ...but budget leather may not be the most supple ....mr klompy might have some insight in breaking in new leather ...??
