Not to make you worry or anything, but the break-in process usually lasts 2 weeks for me.. It starts around day 2-3, and fully break in, in about 2 weeks.. But maybe thats just me.. Oh yeah, and when I lived in USA (less humidity-heat) it took me about 3-4 weeks.. Here in Panama the humidity and high temperature help the break in process and foot adjustment process.
Anyway bro, practice a lot with them, wear them as much as possible, and if you don't care if they get a tad stinky then where them without socks, as your feet sweats more and it gets softer that way - gross I know, but its what I've had to do at times...The water part I've done, and it makes the boot softer in the moment, but I dont know if it does so long term... Anyway, it wont do you any harm so give it a try.. Just train with them, and wear them as much as possible..
Here is something Kakagotskillz wrote that helped me break my shoes in
Wear them around the house. Here's a simple but probably effective plan:
First 2 Days: Walk around and just sit around with the shoes on. Lightly push on the leather/material on your cleat every now and then to soften the material.
3th-5th Day: Just jog around an enclosed area in your house. Start walking around on your toes.
5th-7th Day: Get a small ball, slowly dribble around the house. If there's uncomfortable part to the dribbling, or you just don't "feel" the ball through the cleat, revert back to step two.
8th-10th Day: Go outside, on the grass, just lightly pass around with both feet. Try to pass with different parts of it.
11th-Whenever Day: Go to a wall, just drive at it. Do some curlers, some drives, volleys, lofted balls, w/e.
If there's any problems between the 3rd step to the 5th step, revert back to the second step. Don't forget to clean your cleats if that happens
and heres the entire thread just in case:
EDIT: In your case though, you don't have 11 days so I would do it quicker.
