  1. theres also much bigger differences as well. the preforation is not real preforation and is way smaller on the new ones than the originals, i actually hate the new tiny preforation and the boot covers the entire foot on the inside, the hurache inside on the originals has a space for the foot to breathe through the preforation. the preforation is halted by a shiny silver wack piece of material so your foot cant breathe with the new holes. it sucks and the boot instead of seeming seperated like it is on the original is like its part of the back of the shoe. pressed firmly against it.
