It's called "wearing in," not" swearing in," so how come that sweet pair of leather cowboy boots is really trying your patience? If boots got you slipping up, slipping down, preventing you from walking straight, you've got a case of heel slippage.

The good news: heel slippage is normal for new boots, and in most cases goes away when the boots are broken in.
