This boot was not as comfortable as I was hoping. It put pressure on the medial side of my calf and I had not even started riding yet. They are a lot more bulky than the picture shows. There are 2 different draw strings for your lacing system. the inside draw string just dangles there with no space to fit it anywhere. The handle of the main lace system is nice and easy to pull. the best thing about the boot is the fur lining.
