These boots are very comfortable to wear (not too heavy and not too hot), and the inner sole is well padded for comfort at the heel and the balls of your foot. Slipping the boots on while standing is a bit tricky, your heel can potentially ride down and rub/crush the rear backstay. Also, the 'neck' narrows a tiny bit as the upper meets the lower (in this case where cowhide meets suede) for my foot making entry/removal a bit tight - no problem while wearing though. Finally, the collar at the top rear is not worn in yet (boots are 3wks old) but it is a bit hard on my calf muscle area, it rubs annoyingly when striding. If you wear longish socks its not problem. Overall, these are a fine boot, look good, are tough against the elements and keep my feet warm and dry.
