    Size is same. They wear out pretty fast but they are really comfortable. Especially for walking the mountains. They made my feet sweat more though.

    Those look a lot better than the converse ones I see people often wearing.

    Yes. The laces wear out faster also. They are worth it though. Buy 2 pairs.

    I had the converse aka combat chucks with the zip up sides.


    i fucking loved those so much. durability is an issue - they are good for about 6 months of hard work and thats it, but for $90 it was money well spent

    Might want to take a look at the Rocky SV2s. - Its what I wear and they are awesome. Havnt taken them to the desert yet but I've put them through a ton of abuse and there still going strong.... Not to mention they are actaully comfortable.

    so i got my boots today. they fit fine except the toe part is really spacious. my toe comes up to where it normally would in a shoe (about half a thumb from the end) but it feels weird having so much room in the toe.

    think i should go down 1/2 a size? i have on regular sneaker socks and i've been on my feet for 13 hours today so my feet are a little swollen, but i think these are supposed to be worn with a thicker sock than what i have on.
