These are my all time favorite boots. I've had them over a year and wear them constantly. They are my everyday drivers. From light hikes to concerts to the mall. And, the more beat they get the better they look (imo.) I don't remember having to break them in much and I turn to them when I want comfort. They've become beloved friends just like boots should.
What do you do when you get work boots too nice to work in? I guess these are now my stylish casual boots that are tough enough to tour worksites, climb ladders, etc, but I'd rather wear them to lunch or the movies and look good! I usually wear 8.5-9 in boots, and the 8.5 fits my feet perfectly. I get compliments every time I wear them!
