I haven't had an opportunity yet, to wear them to ride.
I have tried them on and walked in them for a while, and I think they will do just fine for riding. They have a comfortable fit, they don't gap anywhere, might be a slight rubbing on my right heel for some odd reason I'll figure it out. I have wide feet, big ankles, high in steps and high arches so it may have something to do with that. But I'm not expecting it to be an issue. I bought these on sale. And they are not genuine leather however, they are synthetic.
