My son has had a pair of these for 3 years. He really like them so I tried a pair as well. They fit great a feel good. They are much heavier than my Thor boots. My calve muscles hurt quite a bit the first time I wore them either due to being to tight or the weight. Second time I wore them, no issues. Love the fit and feel. I guess the only negative was the price. I did not do my homework and found them $100 cheaper on another site.
