A large number of Ottawa players (myself included) run this as their default footwear, unless it's excessively wet. Never had a problem w/ traction etc.
Might as well throw in a few more points since this got bumped;
- After almost a year of owning these boots, they're even more comfortable then when first bought, and I've often ended up just throwing them on for "around town" since they're so light, so they have seen a good amount of use.
- Only QC issue is that after about 7 months use, the rear pull loop on the back ripped it's stitches out while I was pulling the boot on. Truth be told, I should have undone the laces more, and I was in a hurry. No biggie, just brought them into my unit tailor w/ his big industrial machine and all fixed up.
