How to make new Doc Martens comfortable to wear?

I bought some barely worn Doc Martens and right now they hurt a lot to wear. Especially the seams at the back of my heels are painful. Does anyone have any tips for making them more comfortable to wear?

    Depends on the material, and whether you are okay if they become a bit scratched.. It will sound funny but you can oil them and heat with the hairdryer and then use a hammer with a sock on to hit the areas that need to expand and become softer… Another option is oil them, heat the areas that need to expand and put on 3 socks on or more and wear them at home, its all about heating carefully and bending/moulding the areas that are hard around your foot. The best part is that after a few months these will become your most comfortable shoes and literally invincible against any weather conditions! Good luck 🥳

    I've heard there's socks out there you can buy designed for breaking in doc martens that are great! I haven't tried myself but heard positive things :)
