Great boots, but...

These are exactly as described-- a vintage style, with thick, high quality leather and crepe sole. However, I had a terrible time getting my feet into them, as the unlined leather grabbed my socks and wouldn't let them slide in! And while I've always resented lace-up boots which also have a zipper (Why have the laces? I always think), in this case I would've preferred that. You really have to pull the laces VERY loose all the way down to get a socked foot into them, and unless you can wear a thick sock in this kind of boot, why have them at all? I wear a 38 (lifelong 7, but more and more a 7.5 these days), and the 7.5 was fine once I got my foot in, but without a lot of spare room for a thick sock. If you're looking for a more cushioned, supportive footbed, these are not for you...and not a lot of spare room for an extra insole. I returned them.
