I've worn these about 4 times. I was concerned initially about how hard I had to pull to get these on. Thought it would get better with time. They are snug, but otherwise comfortable. I've worn these with thin cotton socks, but with the amount of force I've had to use to get them on, I was concerned that the pull straps were going to be the point of failure. Guess what? On the fifth time, the pull strap on one side gave up on one end of the strap. I think that the shaft of the boots were not designed large enough to get a size 14 foot down the shaft and the shaft doesn't bend enough (at least when new...) to make the corner at the sole. I'm taking them to a shoe repair store to have some leather pulls double-stitched on as I no longer have the packaging to return them. I had been considering these vs. a pair from, er, (LL let me see now, who was that?) for something to get off and on quickly to shovel off the driveway. My bad--guess I made the wrong choice.
