Any hiking boot worth its salt is going to have a breaking-in period, and this boot's was not unusually long. Good enough ankle support to make carrying a load more stable, and fantastic traction, even on wet rock and snow. A word of warning: order a half size lower than you usually would, even after you adjust for the UK to US difference. For instance, I usually wear an American 6.5, I ordered a UK 4.5, which should correspond to a 6, but these are comfortable with two pair of substantial socks.
