As far as style and comfort go, these boots rock. These boots are the most comfortable boots I've put my feet into and only took about a day of solid riding to fully break in. The ankle support rocks! I get so many complements on these boots. They are warm and dry and super comfy and light to walk around in off of the mountain. They do have an ignorable pressure point on my outside front foot right below my ankle, but I semi expect one in every boot. My one fear is that the lace system won't hold up very well since they are already showing some wear after about 10 days of riding. But Rome has an awesome warranty program, so i'll just ship em back if they don't last!
