These boots are amazing right out of the box. No need for breaking in. There's enough room for the toes to wiggle around. I'm an 8.5 and sometimes ordering my size doesn't go well. But these fit great!
Only reason I didn't give 5 stars was the color of the boots are different from the picture. The picture shows like a yellow tint to it, but they're more tan cognac color. I still love them, so I kept them.
