Loving these boots so far. The heel was extremely tight, which is a good thing, but required bandage for about the first week. However, I believe that usually comes with the break in process, which in my opinion has been a minimal duration/experience. The only thing I don't like about these boots, is that when you look down at them the grey toe reads on one boot "I am making," and the other boot reads "ART!" in a chicken-scratch looking font. It also says that all over the tongue, but that isn't as noticeable. Multiple friends asked me on the chair lift, why does your boot (the unstrapped one) say "I am making," and I had to explain the silly font everytime. Luckily my friend is an artist and added some sweet designs on top to cover the font. And NOW they are 5 stars in my eyes. Thanks!
