    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Honestly I think you should keep em the length you'll get used to, I think all my boots run long but always the main issue is instep and heal area. For a longer boot you want the foot area to be slightly snug so that your foot doesn't move, that's why I use a insole in all my boots but for some people I guess it's a preference.

    Hey guys, sorry if this is a dumb question but for anyone who has used insoles, what's a brand you would recommend? And how exactly would you insure that they would fit perfectly inside a pair of shoes?

    Reverse calf back zip? Looks reall good there.



    IIRC Tacco insoles are highly recommended.

    + on Tacco they are super thin, also superfeet are great but pricey

    ^ I would recommend Tacco. Their insoles were pretty good. It was their heel grips which got me into this brand. Quality stuff from Germany.

    Thanks a lot guys :). I was just wondering since I'm about to purchase a pair of 995's in size 43 so it might be a tad large. Hopefully it all works out.

    great boots, that's a steal. fit slightly long but instep is low so don't recommend sizing down.

    Do most of you guys pop on a vibram/topy sole with your boots? Got a pair of Guidi backzips on the way, and still on the fence on what to do with the sole...leaning towards not adding an additional sole.

    why not? gives you some much needed traction and helps them last longer.
