Overall a good feeling boot for the chunkiness of the sole and the slim rise of the boot itself around the calf. They only may need minor adjustment of the upper two straps. I did mine with a Dremel tool (lacking an awl) to get a closer fit. Another hole further into the strap would've been obnoxious and screwed the whole fit. I wasn't initially keen on the zippers but they turned out to be useful after a late night at the club without my girl to take off the boots.
