Hi Guys,

Soft materials in all boots do tend to break in / break down over time whether the bot itself is soft or stiff. Boots that do not manage flex well (articulating cuffs, flex zones, smart seams, etc) wear out more quickly. This boot is extremely high quality and well designed. It has the feel of an ultra durable, pro-level product that will wear like a work boot. It has definitely been designed for riders that get their days in. That being said, you never really know about how the final production model will hold up in any boot model until you have a season in.

Cool, perfect answer. In your opinion, are the '13 models just as durable of quality? I found a pretty sweet deal, and I like that brown leather

I'm really confused on this vs the Andreas Wiig - they both have the heel cup pulling back mechanic but the Wiig uses laces and the Infuse uses Boa? Any other diff? Which is more comfy?
