AWESOME BOOT!! THIS VERY WELL MADE, WATERPROOF ITALIAN BOOT FITS LIKE A GLOVE! IT HAS A ROOMY TOE BOX WITH A GOOD SNUG FIT AROUND THE ARCH. THERE IS PRACTICALLY NO BREAK-IN TIME. MABYE A JAUNT OR TWO AROUND THE BLOCK, THAT'S ABOUT IT. THE SIZING IS RIGHT ON THE MONEY. THESE BOOTS SEEM TO FAVOR MEDIUM TO MODERATLY LARGE VOLUME FEET FOR THE NORMAL WIDTH. THEY OFFER SUPERIOR ANKLE/ARCH SUPPORT AND HAVE GOOD INSOLES. EVEN THE EYELETS AND HOOKS ARE TOP NOTCH. THEY ARE SMOOTH, EYE CATCHING, AND OFFER PLENTY OF ROOM TO DOUBLE BACK FOR A LOCKED KNOT. I GIVE EM 5 STARS EVEN THOUGH I HAVEN'T RACKED UP THE MILES YET. IF THE LONGEVITY MATCHES THE QUALITY WORKMANSHIP, GOOD PRICE, AND PLUSH COMFORT AS I EXPECT IT WILL, I THINK THESE MAY BE THE BEST BOOTS I'VE EVER OWNED!?
