I bought these for a trip to the upper peninsula of Michigan. We'll be crawling around rocky beaches, and I wanted some ankle support. These boots were affordable and had good reviews, so I took a shot. To break them in, I used them mowing lawn and running errands. No discomfort at all, right out of the box. They feel like I'm wearing sneakers. Love the side zip. I'd buy again in a heartbeat
They are comfortable... very. Easy to pull on and take off. I don't like the thread/thru lace clips; wish they were hooks. I bought my usual size (11 1/2), which fit perfectly. Highly recommended.
These boots run half a size larger than your regular footwear. If you typically order a size 10.5, order a size 10.
These boots have lasted longer than many expensive pairs of boots I have had. Had for almost a year and still holding up well and I am hard on work boots. Very lightweight and comfy.
The boot over all looks great. It is also pretty light. The only thing that is wrong with the boot is the hard rubber around the laces. When you tie the boots the rubber bends inward on the middle causing discomfort on the inner and outer bones of your foot. It was very uncomfortable to wear. It was constantly pushing on my bone.
