break in needed

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Callmeal from new york on Sunday, June 14, 2015
Out of the box I was impressed with the quality, lightness and overall appearance of the shoes. The fit was correct on size but felt narrow. The lacing to the toe allows a lot of control of the tightness of the shoe in different zones of the foot. The laces do not freely move through the eyelets so some effort must be taken to get the fit correct. After the first twenty to twenty five miles in these shoes they are just beginning to break in. There were several pressure points over the top and the outside of the foot. So far the waterproofing has performed wonderful, however with the low cut you can't steep in any thing deep without getting a foot full of water. Also the mud and dirt does not stick to the leather. I would purchase these shoes agin with the knowledge that i will need an extended break in and would get the same size in a wide.
