As soon as i pulled these guys out of the box i knew they were going to be comfy. Really good leather. Supple yet rugged is the best way i can put it. It does take some time to break them in. I got the lug sole, due to not really needing some anti poaching soles. Also i happen to live near Mountains and want the boots for hikes and such.I been wearing them for 2 weeks now and they are easily the most comfortable pair of boots i own.
As far as sizing goes, I wear a size 8 us/41cm in sneakers. I purchased that size for these bad boys but decided to get a wide fit , due to my toes always feeling squished in on the sides, and after some consultaion from Ivan as well. The insole it comes with isnt really an insole, so before i started breaking them in i bought a thick insole from a local department store. After i threw that baby in, the boots really were perfect.I have to say i made the right choice.
I wear normal boot socks(usgi green) with these and they dont feel that loose with them. I just tighten the laces a bit more and they are good to go.I have yet to throw some thick wool boot socks on with them , as i live in the desert, its still too hot for that.
Overall i would def reccomend these to anyone in search of a good all around boot. It doesnt scream Surplus, so you can wear it anywhere from the campus to the Bush.
