Be patient and wear boots in!
Reviewed by Paul1184 from Upstate NY on Sunday, February 23, 2014
Out of the box these boots looked amazing. The craftsmanship is second to none. The boot itself has no flex and feels like steel. I have had good boots in the past that needed wearing in but these seemed excessive. I wore them for a day around the house and was worried that I would never be able to break these babies in. In fact I re-boxed them and asked for a refund as I though that my feet would not be able to take the strain. Once back in the box I decided to take a more in depth view of the reviews at STP before sending them back. The reviews convinced me to break open the box one more time. Thank the heavens I did. One more day on my feet they felt great. The size is pretty much true to size (13D) but if I had the option I probably would have chosen wide version. found a little bit of slide in the heal box but new insoles and lace adjustment cured this. I have had Zamberlan mountain boots back in the day and walked Austrian, Italian and French alps these are as good. the leather is exceptional. For the record I have not yet tested these boots on anything more than the flatlands at the moment and have not put them through a wet day. I hope they last as they should.
