I have ridden in these boots twice, and they are nicely broken in. So much so, I wore them to the movies this afternoon! I got these to replace a pair of paddock boots that have never fit properly and often left blisters. The true test of these boots will come when it's hot and I get super-sweaty feet. In most shoes, regardless of what they are, I get blisters due to the moisture. However, for now, these boots are super comfortable.
