Feet come in different sizes and shapes.

A scanner would image your feet in 3D and track your walking style, and then calibrate a pair of robot feet that would conform to your feet and break in your shoes/boots for you but at accelerated speed.

       I have read that bespoke shoes do not need to be broken it (since they already fit perfectly). I suspect the cost of your machine would make bespoke shoes look cheap.

       Can we say, "Electric Shoe Tree?" I picture a whole bumch of shoes in my closet, all moving at once. Enough to freak out any 2 year old!
