joeouter ,left side of left side boot.rubs against boney bit of outer ankle.got in sale so kept them.do try on/walk around in shop before buying.lasted 14 months before compartments of back heel wore down letting in water,all boots wear down but upper leather still looks good despite amount of wearing(around half a mile per day,once a week one mile).fairly chunky grips,still not worn down significantly.
MyThere was a bit of space above my foot, but the boot still remained very comfortable during long walks. The boot is pretty flexible straight out the box compared to other leather boots I've tried which could be a good or bad thing depending on your preferences. I didn't get the chance to seriously test the boots waterproof-ness but it handled walking through long wet grass and small puddles just fine. I wouldn't call the boot breathable, but it's expected from a boot mainly covered in leather. Overall the boot did a very good job considering its low price, so if your only looking for a boot for occasional use, these boots are very good value for money.
Oh and one last thing - the brown looking version is more purple than brown!
