mm, quick word of warning; I bought cheap boots from Delia's last summer....actually they're the calf boots for my FFX Yuna costume...and they are made from bad, non-flexible material that put SCARS in my legs after ACen! ;_;
I don't wear them that often, so perhaps the problem could be fixed after break-in...but I don't know. My more expensive X-2 ones from Sears post less of a problem... If you buy these, wear knee socks or beat them in before the con of choice, lol.
