Thanks for your patience with your IR edit. Below are my edits. Your HTML

The site makes me curious because it emphasizes the "stout ankle support"
and the "protection of a boot with the feel of a running shoe."
EDIT: Extra space between "boot" and "with".
What I don' t know is what types of fabrics are used in the construction or

EDIT: Delete extra "and".
What I got was a while different story.
EDIT: Not sure but I think "while" should have been "whole".

are very snug in the width department.
EDIT: Extra space between "out" and "my".
The boots were more arch comfortable with the insoles out, so I am

COMMENT: You've already answered this question. Maybe you should delete

12. Will they have a permanently poor odor after 6 months of testing?
Edit: Testing period is now only 4 months.

boots or are their sizing differences/irregularities for this brand?
EDIT: Change "their" to "there".
