Wanted to like these, really wanted to. Loved the look of them, the style, and they were actually very comfortable. But did't like them on. Tried, with scrunched down knee socks and a dress, adorable, but couldn't get into them with jeans or leggings. Material seemed cheap, did not seem like leather at all! Was like pleather, with a foam lining. Said it was leather, but truly wonder. Size was true, and again boots were very comfortable, right off the bat. Only wore them once, to a school play, then realized I just didn't love them. I think if they were real leather, thick solid leather like they look like in the picture, I'd been real happy.

I first got a brown pair a half-size up as mine wasn't in stock- some insoles fixed that, and I liked them so much I then ordered a black pair in my real size. I've been alternating wear of both for several months now - fabulous comfort and fit. When re-waterproofing last wee I noticed that the side seam stitching on one of the browns was unraveling a bit, so I was happy to find them still in stock, plus now in my real size. So now I have a spare pair for when the originals give up.

Good quality leather boots at a fair price. Fit true to size. Finished boot top is attractive. Uneven white coating on leather was unattractive but there were instructions about leather care that should resolve the problem.

I bought both the Brown and Black styles - the Brown at 1/2 size up due to their not having any 8s, but with added insole and thick socks I liked then so well I got the Black in an 8, which fits perfectly. As another reviewer noted, the Black required some rubbing to remove what seemed to be excess whitish coating - that's the only reason I gave them 4 stars. But since I already planned to apply a heavy duty conditioner/waterproofing it wasn't an issue for me. The brown ones looked better after applying boot oil as well.

I ordered these boots at the same time I ordered a pair of Earth boots. The Earth boots are rediculously comfy and awesome. These boots are great, just not as great as the Earth boots, which colors my review a bit. These boots run big which I am okay with because my toes do not slide to the front and hit. They are fairly comfy right out of the box although they could use more arch support, nothing an insert won't fix. They have a white dusting on them when new that quickly rubs in/fades away. Overall a good looking casual black boot.
