I love these shoes, especially since I got them as a gift. Out of the box they fit great and need no time to break in. The sole is sturdy enough to push a shovel into compacted ground, yet still flexible when you kneel down. Very easy to walk in and after a long day in the yard, I have no foot fatigue. The shoe is not perfect and the following is not to knock the shoe, but in hopes version 2.0 is even better.. They are very hard to get on with the included laces. When you first put them on for the day, they go on OK, but it's been hot here, and once they get damp from sweat, it really became a challenge. I ended up ripping off the pull tab. The Customer Service was great and promptly shipped out a replacement shoe. They suggested I elastic laces. Lace Locks are a must, the shoes goes on and off effortlessly with the elastic style laces, and I have no issue with them feeling lose. (I first cut the elastic too short, ordered a second set and left them full length. I tie off the extra like a normal lace would be tied). Knowing this is an issue they should ship with them in the box at $120.00. I would like to see the upper fabric treated with a water repellent or use a material like a gortex. The sole and toe cap are sealed which makes for mowing in damp conditions nice, but when it comes to hosing them off after a day in the dirt, the mesh soaks right through. This also makes it a no go for spraying herbicides. As a start up it must be hard, but the price needs to come down to around $80.00, maybe $90.00. I think they will last a while but my previous yard footwear was a decommissioned hiking boot that cost me about what the KUJO does and have seen 10 years of use, and would still be on my feet if I hadn't got these as a gift. I do prefer the KUJO over the boots tho. Overall great shoe, looking forward to seeing what the company has to offer next.
