These didn't quite live up to the hype for me. If they fit your feet and ankles I can imagine they perform very well, and I have friends who swear by these boots so don't let my opinion alone make your decision. I have very low volume feet, ankles and legs, with moderate width forefoot and skinny ankle. I found the forefoot too tight and too short, constricting my toes. I initially couldn't get the boa tight enough over my forefoot but I solved that by adding a thicker foot bed. The ankles were too roomy,...
