This is really an awesome shoe
These are NOT the "faux fur" interior that is stated. It is a velvety-like fabric and feel, and I only found that out by chatting with Aetrex. This is really an awesome shoes; easy in, easy out, great for my high arches, and doesn't make my long feet look long. The interior is extremely comfortable. My only issue is that I would prefer a wedge for all day walking comfort, and it is about ¾" too short in the heel. I find about 2 ½" just the right height, but I can build it up with lifts. My only other concern is whether or not the seam at the bottom of the laces will be comfortable, or if I'll begin to feel it after walking a lot. They have great rugged soles, and the laces can be adjusted to fit--but they don't allow the width to adjust much, so that is why I worry about the seams rubbing after awhile. But, maybe they will soften. I adore Aetrex shoes, and always find them worth the price. They really alleviate my back pain.
The boots are true to size, extremely comfortable. There is no need to break in the boots, they are perfectly paired to your feet. I suffer from Plantar Fascitis and these boots are heaven sent.
