I’ve been wearing them straight out of the box and even went on hikes right away without any discomfort at all! And that means a lot as I tend to get blisters even from flip-flops..
I love these boots, they are comfortable straight away and required no breaking in. The leather is soft and I love the grain texture.
Obviously well made boots, the leather being thicker and more supple than close rivals. I did however return the pair of 8 hole derby boots as they were about half a size larger than I was expecting, and actually, I didn’t think suited me. The return procedure was relatively fuss free (although not cost free) and I imagine that I will probably be looking at purchasing another style from this quality manufacturer in the near future.
After buying a few pairs of another well known brand I decided to return them and buy a pair of Solovair instead. They are by far the superior product. Excellent handmade quality and detailing. Very pleased with my new purchase and hoping to be wearing them for many years to come!
