 Just received my "Cougar Paws". I got the high-top tennis shoe style. Does anyone know if the leather dura-flex style is more "flexible"? These are pretty stiff. I'm used to wearing an Ariat boot that has a pretty flexible sole and this is a big shock with the lack of flexibility---I think it will cut down on everything from balance to maneuverability. If you have a "Favorite Cougar Paw", please advise.
