Could be. I'm just used to heavy dress boots and sometimes, heft can indicate quality or good materials. I do need longer socks as the top part of the boots keep rubbing against my shins. Might end up with my skin peeled.
Any comments on the ROMPIB-PCC? I'm contemplating to either get a semi armhole leather or gloved titanium leather. My only concern with the semi armhole is the short body length. From my inquiries, the back length without the collar is between 23.5" to 24", which is fine with me. The one on grailed though is 21.5" only. Now that ends up being short for my liking.
