You will be able to find more comfortable shoes.

Reminder: Buy a pair of solid athletic shoes. If you like to jog, walk, run, exercise or play gold, there are shoes made specifically for those activities.

Immediate comfort is the sign of a nice pair of shoes. Breaking in shoes can be a painful experience so that beautiful, expensive new pair may end up rotting in the closet. Having to break shoes in can result in discomfort and foot difficulties.

Reminder: Do not try and convince yourself that you can break in uncomfortable shoes. They should be comfortable, immediately.
