I Slow to Bond With These

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Onquest from Southern California on Monday, February 9, 2015
I've had these boots for nearly a month and have had them ready to return several times. I think today I have finally made the decision to keep them.
My concerns are that they are heavy, they are stiff and they feel 'clunky'. I have a low instep which doesn't need support and the instep support in these boots was irritating to me.

I have been wearing them around the house with different sock combinations and today I finally hit the hills with a 3.5 mile hike. These boots are not light hikers, and as such I feel they will take time to soften up.

On the positive side, I have a large, wide foot and these boots contain my heels snuggly and yet allow plenty of room for my toes. That clunky look I don't like the look of so much seems to make my toes very happy. I had a comment from one of my hiking friends that they felt my boots made my feet look smaller! Ok, I'm happy with that.
