Solid boots. Soles were comfy from the get go. The upper was a bit creaky and took a few days' wearing to break in, but has been fine ever since. Excellent fit and comfort-level considering the price point.
Bought the Captain’s in brown. Great quality for the price and a great looking boot. Went a half size down as recommended and they fit, albeit a little snug. Unlike other comments they’re not quite worn in straight out of the box. I’ve had them 3 weeks or so now and they’re still stiff around the ankle. I’m sure this will give in time and have no other concerns. Will definitely look at other styles in this brand and have no hesitation to recommend them to others.
