Boots arrived today, two days ahead of scheduled delivery date. First impression on taking them out of the box and lacing them up: lighter than expected, fit like a glove (men's size 7), sturdy and comfortable. Have worn them all day with a pair of hiking socks and feet have not overheated. Have taken three good walks that have included up and downhill sections as well as flat stretches. These boots feel like they are already broken in and I have been wearing them forever. In addition to the foregoing, the look is classic. Provided they hold up over time and tough terrain (time will tell), I'm happy to offer this glowing review.
I’ve now worn these boots for 5 months in all kinds of terrain. First impression has held true. Love everything about these boots!
