I feel so fortunate to get these boots at such a reasonable price!! I was reluctant to purchase them because they don't have a side zipper, but because I loved the style and STP's return policy is so great, I took the plunge and ordered. Y'all - don't hesitate like I did. The moment I opened the box and the aroma of supple leather filled the room, I was smiling. Then, when I saw the boots - woah...beautiful black, full grain leather, not too soft and not too stiff...just right! They slipped on easily - fit comfortably and looked amazing! Walking around in them was a breeze...the heel is a great height and these can easily be dressed up or down. There is room for skinny jeans, jeggings or leggings, with a slightly relaxed fit at the ankle and oh sooo comfy! Then, the moment of truth...was I going to be able to get them off? Without help?!? Hubby is at the hunting camp and I really didn't want to be stuck in these boots for the next 2 days!! I'm happy to say they were so easy to get off...not a problem whatsoever!! Why did I hesitate...I could have purchased these boots LAST year! I missed a whole season of amazing boots. I'm sure glad I got on board. Now I'm back to see what other colors they come in!! Oh - and I wear an 8.5 or 9...I ordered the 9 and they're perfect, with room for tights, socks or both. Ariat is top drawer in my book, and these boots are no exception!
