Not too impressed

The overall quality of this boot seems to be good, but the buckle is made of that cheap composite metal kind of material which is well known for breaking easily. Plus it looks cheap and for such an eye-popping detail, it devalues the boots. I also do not care much for the label right in front of the boot, for I found it also cheap looking and tacky. As for comfort, yes, they are comfortable, though not perfect. If I am not wearing the correct pair of socks, I can feel my heel going up and down while it rubs against the back, causing abrasion and feet to heat up a bit. I am not sure about other brands of Wellies and if this happens with the other ones, but I am curious to find out, since this is my first pair of Wellingtons. Also, I am an average 5'6" and these feel a bit too long for me. As I walk and bend my knees, the back of my legs hit the edge of the boots. Because of this, sitting down also adds a bit of discomfort as the back of the knees hit the edge of the boots. And forget about crossing your legs because the buckles make it impossible, since one will hurt the leg on top of it. Oh, well... In all, I'm not too impressed with these, but they seem to be sturdy in construction.
