They look good in my opinion. for a buck 25 hard to beat. The crease wouldnt bother me but that's up to you. I creased a 500 dollar pair in a similar way the first week I had them. I figured I got the first major issue out of the way and can enjoy. The boots look sharp, I like the laces on them. Are they rubber or leather sole?
I hope you enjoy them.
I feel the same way about the first crease---someone did the hard work for me, not I can just enjoy.
The boots are not just rubber but an actual Dainite sole, I'm surprised those boots haven't gotten more love (though more of an SW&D piece). I guess there have been some reports of comfort issues, but they feel good to me so far.
(that's not Duck Beach Outer Banks reference is it?)
