How can I soften hard shoe leather?

I bought a pair of sandals that after just half an hour of wear, had literally worn a ridge into the top of my foot and they were starting to bleed. I’m not sure I can return the shoes, but was wondering if anyone had any ideas as to how I can soften the leather so I can wear them. Thanks!

  1. When I was in the Marine Corp, I always used saddle soap on my new boots to soften them up so they were easier to break in. You can find it just about anywhere. Just follow the directions on the tin and you should have no problem.

  2. soon after u buy a pair of leather shoes or chappals apply coconut oil to the areas where there is going be contact with your skin. leave it overnight. just rub the excess oil with cotton before wearing them. the leather will become soft & your footwear will not hurt your feet.
