the EBs are great. The only thing is since I got a monk and EB does not use any garter, putting it on the first hole makes it too tight on the instep and putting it on the second hole makes it too loose. I need strap to stretch. Otherwise fit is fantastic.Also to keep it to the thread, here is The Carson City boots worn with shorts Lara Croft style through the temples of Angkor Wat. Lol.
