When these were on sale, I bought a pair of the brown ones. They were a slightly odd color when they came in, and a little long at first, making walking uncomfortable. However, after a few rides, they fit like a glove. The inside patch got a little hard from sweat, but is supple to ride in and quite comfortable, so I don't mind. Very breatheable in the heat and humidity out hear. I recently switched to black boots, and am buying the black pair now. Over all, great for schooling, though I wouldn't show with the brown ones (no judgement on black yet).
had mine for six years, still love them, very well made, soft, fit great after all this time
