I have not had one problem with these boots. I take a size 13.5 and I have thouroughly enjoyed them. They feel even better with a spenco arched insole. Even after a 13 hour day on Long's Peak I had no blister or even sore spots. I do keep to toe box laces loose to allow for bigger sox and less constriction, but they still perform very well and their grip in the cold on bare rock is fantastic. A fabulous all-around boot.
