These boots took about two full shifts to break in. We work 24 hr shifts so it was a rough week. That being said, these are now, by far, the most comfortable boots I have ever worn on the job. I have been a firefighter and a paramedic for over twelve years and I have worn all types of boots. These are designed with us in mind. The zipper goes all the way to the sole, making it easier to get on and off, without giving up any of the support you need. I can’t speak to how they wear over time as I have only been wearing them for a couple of months.

Great, but... The good: comfortable. Not too heavy with good padding and shock absorption. Great ankle support, which is important. The zip entry is very quick and convenient. They clean up well. They also look like boots as opposed to a tall pair of cross-trainers, which I appreciate. The bad: durability. The soles are quite soft and wear very quickly. If you spend a lot of time walking on concrete or any abrasive surface, skip these boots. I've had them for about eight months and the soles are already wearing completely flat in places. Also, the sole has begun to separate from the upper in the toe area on my left boot. Verdict: they were good while they lasted, but I won't be purchasing them again. I need something that will last longer.

Great pair of boots and they look awesome. I ride in a big bike group and the ladies think they look sexy and intimidating. Thanks.

Eminently practical boot. As other reviews point out, I needed to order this in a half size smaller than usual, but once I did, I got a perfectly-fitted boot. Really flexible and comfortable, and very durable. Really happy with these so far, comfortable and nice looking enough to wear daily to the office.

I bought these for my husband. He loves these boots. They are superior foot protection while riding as well as comfortable to walk in.
