When I first got these I thought to myself... wow I don't know if I am going to like the look and style/ material of these boots. Turns out they are SICK! I absolutely love them. The totally rocked the mountain and were super comfortable, even on the first day out. Now to all you who know boots out there, this never happens, you always have to break them in and it takes forever, well NOT these! You definitely could not be happier with purchasing these boots, they are AMAZING!!!
