I have a pair of the tan Valsetz boots and a recently we went down to Kioloa with some friends. They mentioned we would go on a 5km trek through the woodlands there so I thought what a great time to test the boots. Unfortunately I had only taken some ankle length socks which did not protect my whole calf from the boot so I thought I would get blisters since it was a 'first wear'. Well, I needn't have worried as these boots were extremely comfy and after a five click walk in 30 degree heat I had ZERO blisters or rubbing. The boots are EXTREMELY comfortable and AMAZINGLY LIGHT - and Under Armour, known for the their sports gear and running shoes, have done an amazing job with the way the boot hugs the foot and the soft lining. The cut-away heel/calf section means there is no rubbing up the back of the Achilles tendon making these an amazingly comfy wear. With that said, I did leave the upper section slightly loose to prevent chafing and that let in leaves, sand debris etc. Hey ho. I have an 11.5 US, 2e (wide) width foot and these boots - even though they are NOT a wide fitting - performed amazingly. Note that it pays to do some research on lacing styles too as boots can be specially laced to cater for different foot types - check YouTube... Note that the Valsetz boots are not waterproof and you will need a water repellent spray for them (like the SOFSOL spray from rebel) if you want to keep them repelling water. I always use this on new boots. Overall for the price these are an ABSOLUTELY AMAZING BOOT. You will not regret buying these boots...
Purchases some under armour boots, service was great and the price and shipping were both spot on. Thankyou!
Boots are awesome, great lightweight kit, everyone at work wants a pair once they felt how light they were
