Alpha presents different scenarios when you are selecting new shoes and they aren’t completely comfortable. You love the shoes but they aren’t 100%. You rationalize if you do indeed by them. Thoughts range from sock thickness, size, and break-in time. In this video men’s style, grooming, fitness and lifestyle expert, Aaron Marino of IAmAlphaM, AaronMarino, and Pete & Pedro discusses who to instantly break-in new shoes.

All you need are thick socks (athletic, heavy wool, multiple socks depending on how much you need to stretch) and a hair dryer. Don’t do this procedure if your shoes are plastic or synthetic as they’ll melt.

Set the hair dryer on hot. Heat up areas one at a time for 20 – 30 seconds. You can do this procedure multiple times as the stiffer the leather, the more you have to hold it. You don’t want to hold directly on the leather as to not burn it. Walk around after getting hot. Walk until it cools down. Repeat to the other side.

Cold showers are amazing for getting the juices flowing, help you shower faster, and have all sorts of health benefits. One benefit I love is getting my morning routines done quickly. They’ll help you speed up your morning routine because they promote efficiency as you want to get out quicker. To expedite my cold shower, I apply my shampoo, then wash and scrub my body with a loofah (you’ll get cleaner and exfoliated), wash my face/neck/beard, and then shave. The shower is the perfect time to combine tasks, and shaving is one of them. Just use your wash – it’s an incredible shave cream that’s quick, easy, and time-saving.
