After a couple years of lusting after the Dragon boot, I FINALLY got a pair and I’m so happy with them.
I usually wear an men’s 8 in sneakers (I’m a trans guy….smaller feet but still fairly wide). I had purchased the Grail dress shoes in an 8 last year which fit OK, but a little big, so I felt safe sizing down to a 7 for the Dragons. PERFECT fit. Not cramped at all in the toe/sides. Couldnt ask for a better fit. You do definitely need to unlace them down a bit to easily slip on and off - since there are no speed hooks this does take an extra couple minutes but it’s worth it for a comfy fit.
These broke in much more easily than I expected. First real wear was apple picking and they were totally comfortable. I’m glad the 3.0 Dragons have the Z style sole (not sure its actual name) instead of the studded Dainite sole of previous versions, as I like my feet to be in more contact with the ground (weak ankles….bad balance….etc). Overall very comfortable even a couple wears in. I think I could definitely walk around NYC in these.
The color is a little more brown leaning than the pictures allude here, but that’s fine with me. I like that it’s a more unique shade without straying too far from a solid neutral to match my whole wardrobe (i.e. not so green that I wouldn’t wear it with red clothing).
So glad I finally got these!
