I was immediately impressed with the build quality of this boot. But I found it somewhat narrow so I considered returning it. But, since it did not have a full rand, I took a chance the leather would shape to my feet. Fortunately, it has and the boots no longer feel tight. I’ve worn them on three hunts/hikes in tough conditions. The boots are very waterproof and give moderately firm support. The orange laces look great but are round. I always find round laces tend to loosen so I had to tighten the boots at least once each trip. I’ll be buying flat laces. The boots stood up to the harsh, wet, muddy conditions very well and I expect to get long service out of them.
I put these on and walked 9 miles in the woods the first day. No breakin required. Waterproof, durable, supportive and fit my feet perfectly. A friend of mine has had a similar AKU boot for 11years and just replaced them. They may be costly to begin but the value is awesome. Most other boots last 2-3 years.
