These are the best boots I've ever ridden. I also got mine a half size too small so I took the insole out and they fit perfectly. The best ankle support I have gotten on a boot in my 10 years of riding. I got the midnight color and they came with navy blue laces which I like better than the pink. The lacing system is super easy to adjust unlike other lacing systems I've used. Cheers to many more days of riding with these badass boots!!
