Diesel: Storm Kudu with leather sole
These boots are the most comfortable fit I have ever had in footwear. I put them on Day 1 and didn't wear anything else until I had to resole them 4 months later with a rubber sole. I think my strange gait mixed with walking a few miles on sidewalks per day wore down the leather sole quickly. I don't blame the manufacturer for this. I will buy many more boots from GS, just not on a leather sole for everyday use. There was no break-in period as far as I could tell. These boots are my daily driver with nothing else in the rotation...for now.

Length: Slightly Short
Width: Moderately Narrow
This was the first "real" boot I ever bought. These boots made me realize how wide my foot actually is. The boot is too narrow for my foot, but that is not the manufacturer's fault. Overall, the construction and leather is fine. They were a good entry-level boot that taught me an important lesson: know your foot. If Thursday ever makes a EEE width, I will buy one immediately!
