I’m gunna start off by stating the obvious- these boots aren’t very cheap. So I was a little surprised at how badly they hurt when I first bought them. They rubbed against my ankles and calves like nobody’s business, and there’s a stiff part on the outside that pushes into my ankle as well. Now that I’ve worn them a few times, they’re definitely a lot better. They don’t necessarily hurt, but the stiff piece still pushes in, so I’m a little worried that once shut down starts at work and I’m potentially on my feet for 12 hours a day, 30+ days in a row, I’m not going to have any ankles left. My cheap $100 boots served me well and have some life left in em, so I might switch back for the busier times… but we’ll see. I’d like to have faith that these boots will continue to break in. Plus, man oh man, is it convenient to have a zipper. Sounds lazy, but it’s definitely a perk! And hard to come by in women’s work boots.
Good, preferred the pro opus model without the zipper.
