Very happy with my 8 hole derby boots! Very comfortable and reliable. Will definitely be looking into buying different colors.
I am a longtime wearer of a competitor's boots but after my last pair wore out I decided to get the original and I have only been delighted with them. I followed their online sizing chart to get a pair of boots I thought was a bit small. I had worn a 9 for years but the sizing chart recommended a 7.5 which shocked me. I purchased an 8 and can see how I have been wearing the wrong size for years.
These boots fit very well and after only 2 weeks they are well on the way to be broken in, I feel confident stepping on all surfaces that I will not slip. I can't recommend them enough if you like this kind of boot. They shine up really nicely with a bit of dubbin, this also seems to help with the break in. All in all, great style, great comfort, great quality.
Tough to break in but once you do oh my <3
Considered another well known brand but after seeing the reviews chose Solovair and they did not disappoint
I have been a fan of this boot-style for many years but it is the first time that I own an actual pair of Solovair's. I have worn them everyday since receiving them about 2 weeks ago. I was immediately surprised by the level of comfort offered by the boot from day one, even before beginning the break-in process. I often keep them on my feet even after my workday is done because of comfort, something that I did not do previously.
The cost of these boots may seem high initially but if they last as long as expected (with proper maintenance) they may actually turn out to be less expensive than other footwear that I have purchased, considering that their upfront cost might be offset by the years of use that I get from them.
I love things that are well built and made with "heart" so I am sure to purchase other styles from the Solovair line in the coming years!
