I bought these boots on line. Not only do I buy this slip on boots for style, but my boots have to be comfortable, these boots are both. I had a pair of Doc Martens that I was wearing they were comfortable, but at times, depending on the socks and the length of time I wore them during the course of the day, they could make my feet tired and a little sore. I ordered a pair of these online. The box came I opened the box and looked at them and said to myself, "Pretty sharp looking boots, probably have to wear them a few times to break them in." I put them back in the box. A couple of days later I was getting ready for work and my other boots became extremely wet getting my car ready for work. I pulled these out of the box thinking, hate to wear them all day at work without breaking them in. I changed socks, slipped them on and my feet were in heaven. I've been wearing them ever since.No break in needed and my feet are never tired or sore, no matter how long I wear them. My wife asked what I wanted for Christmas. I said another pair of these. I'm ordering my second pair.
