I recently received the Floatride Energy boot and got to wear them for a few days to get initial feeling, etc. and I have to say these veritably compare and will probably outlast and beat my Nike SFS boots in both comfort, wear, and overall feel. Very forgiving athletic outsole and a true-to-size width (10w) that will easily accommodate boot socks of varying thickness and foot swell for a variety of activities. There is a good feeling of wrap to lock in the ankle, and nice flex in the upper for mobility. Needless to say, I'm excited to put these through the paces and my feet are happy when doing what is required.
