|Review:||I've owned these boots for almost four years. The soles have held up well, and the boots have always fit well and provided plenty of ankle support. I have used them in the winter, despite the fact that they are not winter boots; they have performed as well as could be expected. Unfortunately, my foot has increased in size over the last year or so, the the One Sport's don't quite fit me anymore. I will likely by another pair of One Sport Moraines in the spring. |
On the negative side, the leather does scuff easily, and I believe that at least some of the reason why the boots seem a bit small now is because the toe box has flattened as the boots have aged, which exerts pressure on the tops of my toes. It seems to be the boot's one design shortcoming, at least from my experience.
