OK Bates, here goes. I have wanted this boot to replace my high top harness motorcycle boot for some time. I tired several other manufacturers and this boot was the best, I couldn't wait to wear them.I saved up my money and purchased a pair in October. Two weeks later I wore the boots from early AM to Late PM and my left foot was killing me. The fourth eylette on the left inside had worn a blister on my ankle bone. Boy was I disappointed! At first I thought there was a problem with the underside of the eyelette. So on Monday I called customer service and relayed to the young lady my tale of woe. She didn't have an idea how to cure my poor ankle bone other than return the boots; well, this wasn't an option to me because I really liked the boots. I told her that I had rather "fight a small bear than break in a pair of any boot or shoes" and that I would try several things first. First, I unlaced the left boot laces and loosened them up and retied them, then I adjusted the ICS disc. WOW what a change, no more ankle rub. Of course my left ankle bone still had a "rub spot" and was still sensitive, but the difference was dramatic. I have adjusted the ICS disc several times on both the left and right boot and now I have the right "feel", and no more ankle rub. I'm very well pleased with my purchase now, and have worn the boots for about 4 months riding and standing for hours. Uh, Oh, I just tired on a pair of Code 6's! By the way, I still have my 7 year old high top harness boots, can't bear to part with an old friend, and wear them occasionally.

Great boots to wear everyday or just for work. I use them for work and play, when cleaned up even use on a causal night at the movies or dinner. The ics system is a great help due to the fact that I wear the outter side of the sole more then I prefer but with the ics system I wear the sole evenly which makes the boot last longer, saving me money, saving foot soreness and aches, on my third set ( they last about a year depending how hard you are on them ) Pros: Makes the uniform at work look better Dresses up any casual wear Helps with soreness and aches at the end of the day Not gross looking work foot wear Adds about a inch of height for us shorter guys!
