I bought a pair on sale a few months ago. They also fit my amazingly wide
feet very well right out the box. So far, I have been very happy with them
except that the rignt heel cup is extremely stiff, and seems a little
low-cut relative to the size of the boot (womens's 9). I have blisters on
the upper edge of my heel after only a few hours, so I haven't put a lot of
big miles on them yet.
Also, mine are nubuck leather, and I messed up when applying the liquid
water-proofing. The instructions say to thoroughly wet the leather before
applying the liquid. Since I (in genius mode, here) thought that sounded
too goofy I didn't. And of course, there are big patches now where the
treatment didn't penetrate. So, I'm waiting for it to wear off and redo
the boots properly.
