Both pair feel nice and have decent traction. But...
On the Chase boots the side-zips will not stay up!
I mean, I don't have dainty marathon runner calves, but they aren't abnormally large, either.
I had put the boots away for winter in 2013 and haven't needed them during summer travel (far north) for the past year or so.
I started wearing them this fall and a couple days over the winter, but can't go more than 1/2 hour without the zipper completely opening.
And suggestions on how to fix them?
