These boots are so comfortable!! and were right away. BUT- the steal on both boots have dented. I've had them for four months, wear 40 hrs/ wk, and the one boot happened two months in and the other was about three months. Maybe it was just a default pair as no one else has commented about this issue. Also some of the leather is starting to wear and parts of the sole are pealing apart. Super comfy and wish I wasn't having this issue.
