I finally ordered my nicks boots back about 4 weeks ago and they came in without laces they fit my feet really well now I just have to lace them up and start wearing them.

I love my Nick's. I wear them all day every day. I need to send them back for a resole but don't want to go without them.

Theyíre in the box just didnít take the time to lace them when I took the picture, also itís easier to oil the tongue without laces in.

I always bought White's but quality boots are worth their weight in gold. I never ordered "custom" sized ones. I always put them in the bathtub, filled them full of warm water overnight and then laced them up and walked them dry the next day. I never had a blister in 32 years of wearing them fighting fire. I watched others suffer for weeks that were afraid to get their new boots wet.


I have nothing clever to put here.

Not boots but I break in leather work gloves the same way. Soak them in water and wear them dry.

Nice boots. Wore whites for 16 years but last couple pairs didn't last very long and I was disappointed in their quality. Got lots of buddies that wear Nick's. Been ordering JKs now and can't be happier. Always warmed up my boots then soaked them in boot oil ,warmed up again and put them on till they cooled off. Best break in I found.

I thought about whites but I needed steel toe and I liked the nicks version a little better.
