I was looking for a pair of boots that were both unique in appearance and comfortable to wear for long periods of time both standing and riding my MC. On line ordering is always risky especially with foot wear. These boots are unique in their appearance and initially I felt I made a mistake with both then fit and design. However after wearing them and walking around for quite a while the became progressively more comfortable and easy to wear. They're very stiff, so chasing and terrorizing villagers is not recommended until they loosen up and wear in a little. But after they do its all screaming, running, pitch forks and torches with these cool boots. They're very well made and extremely adjustable as to tightness due to winter or summer sock selection. Once you set the laces its just a matter of the side zipper to take them on and off. I would, however, recommend these with a high end orthopedic pad installed.
I read alot of reviews before buying these and almost every review said that they run on the large side. I wear an exact size 11 so I ordered a 10.5 and they were too small. I sent them back and got my original shoe size and they are perfect. I also have a wide foot and wear Birkenstocks most of the time for this exact reason, however these shoes are ultra comfy as you can easily adjust the width with the pull of a string!
