Where'd my toe go?
When they say these boots are stiff they mean itthe first ten or so times you put on and take em off it's going to feel similar to listening to the collected works of Michael Bolton (fing excruciating). But persist and they'll slowly give in to your feet and then you'll realize they are actually some of the best, stiffest, most comfortable boots you're ever going to own. They reduced my heel lift, had room enough for my toes at the front and didn't give me that riding-all-day ache that my last boots did. Don't buy these if you're a park rat, though, 'cause there ain't no give bro-bra.
