My feet are quite wide so I found the right shoe particularly tight.
Super comfortable and quick to break in. I have been wearing them regularly and them seem super durable
I’m a law enforcement k-9 officer and I’ve tried many boots. These are the most comfortable and durable I’ve used to date. Lightweight, waterproof, durable and protective.
