Love these boots.
Came here a while back to buy the RIOT-18BK and ended up throwing these into the cart as well on a whim, and I don't regret it. Super comfortable and does a great job of riding the line between "fun stompy goth boot that will draw lots of attention" and "low-profile design that's easy to work into your wardrobe without needing to go all-in on the spikes and chains to complete the look." The thin strap on the ankle harness does need to be buckled and unbuckled when putting them on or taking them off since it gets in the way of the zipper, but they're comfortable enough that I don't really feel the need to do that often anyway.
