I have 2 other pair of Ovation boots which I love! These boots don't seem like they are from the same brand. The footbed is very uncomfortable especially where the heel is. It has a ridge that you can see looking inside the boot & really feel when wearing them. They claim to be leather, but feel more like a synthetic material. Most leather gives & "breaks in" as you wear it, these are really stiff and not great to walk in. There is no arch support as my other Ovation boots have in them. The footbed isn't removable so I can't replace it with one with more cushion.
