I put them on as soon as they arrived and wore them until I had to take them off to go to bed. And then I put them back on when I woke up. Beautiful and stylish, comfortable and sturdy, I would recommend these near-perfect boots to anyone. Why are they only "near-perfect" you ask? Because these boots are too narrow. They are not Medium Width as stated by Aerosole. I had to order the next half size up and then they fit better width-wise. TAKE NOTE AEROSOLE: stop making your boots TOO NARROW! Or at least make them in "Wide Width" as well so those who wear size Medium Width can wear them. You can always take them in and have them stretched if you need to because, bottom line, you must have these boots!
