I never mess with the straps. Set once and done.I have the same boot and I love riding with them. The soles give great traction when your feet are down. At first, the strap snaps were a bit tricky to get snapped on with one try, but it gets easier.
Romans5.8, what do you oil your boots with? I'm needing to do mine before the wet weather comes.
I agree. I bought a pair of black tactical boots with laces in front and a zipper on the side. Very comfy and they fit nice and snug.Check out the Bates tactical boots. Lightweight, comfy, water proof (if you can keep your pants from getting wet and leaking into them), side zip, TOUGH. They're the comfiest pair of boots I've ever owned, and have lasted quite a bit longer than my HD boots did. PLUS, with the laces, you get a custom fit combined with the quick on/off zipper sides.
