"After all the negative reviews about these being cut short and narrow I bought a size larger but was nervous while I waited for them to arrive. I have wide, flat feet and I don't feel cramped in the boots. They are perfect!
Like almost every motorcycle boot, the sole is hard, I suggest cushion inserts if you want, there's definitely plenty of room top of foot to bottom to add a thick one. I buy gel inserts. They're cushy and comfy.
The boots are butter-soft, thick, and smell like quality leather. They look heavily pre-worn and I LOVE THAT! It's like they're already broken in. They're beautiful on me and I know I'm gonna be getting a bunch of compliments.
I'm THRILLED with these boots, and am happy to have been able to get the last black in the size I needed. Remember to buy a size up from your usual."

Couldn't Even Get My Foot In
"I bought the charcoal but there was lots of discoloration, as if someone accidentally bleached it. I expect this with suede but the splotches were quarter-sized and too noticeable for my taste.
But I decided to try them anyway...except I couldn't even get my foot in. I'm generally a 7, which is slightly big for me, yet my foot wouldn't even go in. It's very rigid at the front of the foot. So back these go. I'm sad because the picture looks so good..."
