I am delighted with this boot. They are extremely light, but provide excellent ankle support and cushion. I am 6-1 and weigh 220 lbs. The soles have incredible grip. It took a while for me to to get used to the wire lacing system, but now I find it far superior to traditional laces. My only concern is what happens if they break? I had to replace the insoles with Super Feet(orange) insoles because I need additional support for heel problems. I have to do this with every shoe/boot I wear. I've had numerous comments too about their appearance: Very cool looking.
