If so, any workarounds to this that you guys have found?
Additionally, these boots are extremely, extremely uncomfortable. I feel every bit of the ground walking around in them, and not in a good way. By the end of the day, my feet are painful and my toes are more or less bruised. Has anybody else experienced these problems? I'm not sure if it's simply how I'm walking, or if these boots are defective.
This describes my Dayton x W+H experience to a tee. I had a lot of heel slip, even after sizing down and adding insoles. Going down another size wouldn't have been feasible, as they fit well with the insole. Despite that, I had a lot of heel slippage.
I could have handled that were it not for the absolute agony I'd feel in my feet if I walked around in these any more than 10 or 15 minutes. Even with the insole, every step felt clunky and jarring. They looked great, but I rarely wore them because when I did, all I could focus on was how uncomfortable every step I took was.
