I love the look, feel and heft of these boot. Based on these 3 assessments I really wanted these boots to work out. I ordered 2 sizes based on the "poor fit" reviews. I was hoping that many of the reviews talking about the difficulties with putting these boots on and taking them off were a little too critical - however the criticism was right on. A real "b***h to get on and, once on a real fight to get them off. Better be sitting down or on the floor when you try. A real struggle. I wanted these to work so much I ordered a 3rd, larger pair and once again - no luck. Also, on all 3 pair the toe box seemed really cramped. Also, criticism that the finger loop is too small is also right on. Needs to be twice the size and sturdier. I will be returning all 3 pair later this week. Too bad. They simply are cool, poor fitting boots!
