First let me start off with these boots are very comfortable. You will need to purchase 1 size larger than your normal shoe size. I've worn my status boots on 3 different rides. After that amount of time I noticed the rubber on the heal was starting to separate in 2 different places. For 350 dollars I was disappointed to see this. I'm not sure if I should return them for a replacement pair or just try another company altogether. Also if you ever have issues with DC products, good luck trying to get ahold of their warranty department. I've sent 2 emails over the last 2 weeks they have not responded yet.
