Tough but Flexible boot built for biking
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
The first day I wore these boots I hit a piece of debris in the street and my bike ended up skidding on its side. I was fine but the street left a good mark on the boots and nearly tore through the laces. Good timing!! My old sneakers wouldn't have provided me that support and I'm sure I would have gotten scraped up. These boots are thick, tough, and waterproof. They took a week or two to break in, but after that have been quite comfortable. They are also warm... Perfect for winter but they will be way too hot once we get into spring in NY. I am very happy with them. They are designed for biking but also look good on the office or walking around. My only minor complaint is that the bottoms can be quite slick but, again, they are designed for biking so it's fair.
