I haven’t done any long rides wearing this boots yet.But I have worn the boots twice to breakin. Was wearing them for long hours ( 7 to 8 hrs) I was comfortable wearing them.Waiting for a long ride wearing them. As per to breaking up the boots to your comfort it doesn’t take much time like other boots. The safety features in this boots are really good. The sole is really grippy on any surface which gives a rider immense confidence to ride. As I am concerned about the looks of myself wearing the riding gears, this boots adds up like cream to a cake. You won’t regret by buying this boots ..... go for it.
