I've heard that wetting a sock (damp) and wearing that in the skates when you walk around simulates a sweaty foot and helps break the skates in more. Is this true?
I don't want to ruin my new boots by doing something foolish, and though it sounds like a decent enough idea I thought I would double check with you guys first.
As much as this seems true, I wouldn't recommend that. From having a cut foot that's lasted 3 weeks, wetting a sock like that could cause infection in the cuts or around the scars, which would knock you out even longer. Do what was mentioned before, just wear them every once in a while and lean side to side.
