just got my crispi kanadas and put them on. first impression is they are extremely well made, and the stiffest boot ive ever had on my feet. it will take some time to get use to them. i love the ankle support in them already, but they feel really weird to walk in after being use to really soft boots. cant wait to break them in and start hiking in them. there are some pressure points on my feet but not sure if its because my feet are shaped weird or because they are stiff. either way not the boots fault. overall i would say they are 5 star and i would recommend them.
