    Default Treadstep Donatello Fit Question

    I just got my Donatellos in the mail from Smartpak today. (yay!) I'm super impressed with the softness of the leather and how comfortable especially the ankle is. My only concern is that they're a bit too tall making the top a little gappy. Does anyone know how much these drop? I'll try to get a picture of where they come to on my leg. I'm short so I have this problem with basically all boots. :P

    I got mine yesterday, and they are too short, and gap badly at the knee..so mine are headed back They fit everywhere else beautifully. Such a bummer.

    I have some, I love them. Mine are a little bit gappy at the knee but that is standard for most tall boots on me.... these fit me far better than any of the others I've tried off the rack.

    Mine only dropped about 1/2". They dropped right away - probably in the first three rides. I don't think they'll drop any more, because the ankle's already broken in.

    These are amazing boots for the price!
