Haven't worn these out and about yet, but I can already tell they're going to be great for all-day wear. Just enough cushioning and arch support, and while they have a slight heel, I still feel like I'm wearing a relatively flat boot. For me, the best feature is that they fit my giant runner's calves, which tends to be my challenge with knee-high boots - they're comfortable over tights, and the slight elasticity in the top allows these to fit over skinny jeans without cutting off my circulation. A couple of things to consider (not necessarily drawbacks, just things to know): 1) They do not rise fully to the knee, but rather about 2-3 inches below the knee. This is actually my preference, and I feel that this fit is more flattering to my leg as a result. 2) I generally wear between an 8.5 and a 9, and opted for the 9 in these. I can tell that they'll feel really tight with thick socks - so, if you think you'll wear anything thicker than tights, you may want to consider ordering a half size up. Overall, great color, great quality leather, great workmanship.
