These boots are comfortable, fit fairly well and have a nice feel, have nice leather, and are waterproof as advertised. I don't like how much padding they have around the ankle, they are more than an inch thick all the way around. This gives them a moon-bootish feel. Since the ankles are so squashy I simply tried to pull them tight, but one of the cleats pulled out! Didn't even yank all that hard. So, pretty nice in some ways, some serious flaws.
