It's been a month and a half of wearing these boots a little too often and they are fantastic. The leather isn't crazy thick to begin with, so the breaking in process has been a breeze if any. The soles of air are a joy and the height of the boot is just ~*chef's-kiss*~
I am a 10.5 mens USA and ordered a 9.5 mens UK but it is a bit roomy, could have gone down maybe a half size, but don't regret getting this size.
Cannot recommend these enough.
Love these boots, measured my foot as advised by yourselves!! Perfect 👍🏼
A little long to break in but I love the looks and the overall quality
They came within 2 days of order which was incredible. Really good quality boots! Impressed with the craftsmanship and quality of the materials. I have just begun wearing them and they will definitely take a while to break in, but I hope that they will become really comfortable with some wear. Compared to a competitor's shoes I have worn previously, these seem like they are built to last so I am looking forward to daily wear!
Some critiques: They run the tiniest bit bigger than expected even though I measured many times to make sure I was buying the perfect size for me. If you have wider feet, it should be fine though. I put in insoles to make them fit properly and they are still a bit large unless I wear thick socks. The laces are also not the best quality. I will probably swap them out for something stronger and more durable.
The leather feels great and they overall fell more nicely made than a competitor I previously had (they weren't made in England).
When I walked in them the first time, it was for an hour straight and I got a couple of blisters, but since then I have't gotten any more and they get more comfortable each time I wear them. So I guess most people definitely have to break them in, but at least for me, it didn't take that long.
