I've broken in many a pair of boots in my time, but these ones have to be the first pair which didn't require a thick pair of socks or some painkillers. From the word go, they were ultra-comfortable and not a blister in sight! Within three days they were perfectly molded to the shape of my foot, and whether I was happily walking around the office or running around some random woodland, they never gave an ounce of pain.
Compared to some toecapped boots I've worn, the Rangers are lightweight. You barely notice them on your feet! They seem resistant to punishment, water, and anything else I felt the need to throw at them (Coffee?). They're also quick and easy to clean, with no fiddly awkward bits on the underside to get clumps of mud stuck in. I'd reccommend these boots to anybody.
They do have one drawback: I dont think they were really designed for walking on concrete/urban terrain, as the treads seem to be wearing down rather fast already. But other than that, they rock!
