3.0 out of 5 stars Almost Great, August 24, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: TR101 Minimalist Training Boot (Apparel)
I've had these about a week now. Definitely the lightest boot i've owned, and perfect for my garrison wear. I love the sole, excellent grip, wide toe box and nice overall feel around the foot. Size about 1/2 size up from your issue boot (same size as my running shoes). Main complaint, as a couple others have noted, the lateral part of both ankles digs into my malleolus (ankle bone). I've had to wear some moleskin and trying to break that part of the boot so it's not as bad. If not for that issue, I would have given 5 stars.

After about the first couple weeks of wearing them everyday this goes away and they feel great. If you wear some moleskin in the problem area it makes it a little better. Still wearing them. Thinking about getting another pair for hiking.

Good to know. I picked up a pair and they aren't as rough as some people made it sound. However they do tend to rub. I'm experimenting with not lacing the ankles too tight and wearing good socks. They're pretty good otherwise, though I think I might be more comfortable with a half size smaller as well. I'll have to experiment as well.

I experienced the same difficulties, initially the boots rubbed at the back of the ankles and I wished they were half a size larger because my big toe bashes against the front of the toe leather. I was on ladders all morning and had to remove the boot mid-day because of the toe discomfort.

Were you able to get the rubbing to go away?

Yes, the rubbing from the heel cup did go away. One other disappointment with the boot is the sole material which is harder than a sneaker. You get a clicking noise when you walk on hard surfaces, not appropriate for tactical footwear.

That goes away. Or you could just not stomp.
