What a great pair of boots! Easy to take on and off, and they stay snug on your foot while walking. I've been looking for a pair of boots like this for a while and I'm glad I purchased these. The factory photo shows some scuffed up looking boots, but the ones I had were slightly dark and not scuffed. I added some mink oil for protection, and the color got a little darker and richer.
love the boots wear them almost everyday durning jean temps. Got a pair last October in my normal 13, the were a bit loose and only got looser a as months went on. They did have cracks in the sealing strip between the leather a rubber soul by late, late spring. This time I got size 12 bc they didn’t 12.5 and the fit great not tight, just right and they’ll loosen up so get a size smaller!
They have a good feel and look to them when they arrived the leather seemed a bit dry so I treated them with mink oil to soften and give a bit of water resistance, I do a lot of walking in all sorts of weather and ground conditions. I have done a little hiking with them also they have a pretty good grip on most surfaces, I like the losse feel with good solid soles, if you are in wet conditions for very long you will end up with wet socks but if just hitting a few puddles occasionally you will find they keep you dry. All in all for the price they are a good purchase I would compare then to much higher priced boots such danner however I’ve only had them for about a month and I wear them most days so I can’t say how long they will last but they seem ok
Comfortable right out of the box and I imagine will be even more so after a few wearings. The fit was as expected with medium socks. Leather and stitching seems to be high quality. A few scuffs and scratches will make this boot look even better. Front loop is too small for a man's finger. Rear loop is larger but I can just barely get my index finger in it - but it does work. Nice rounded toe box looks good and is roomy. Lugged sole is medium soft rubber which doesn't sound like wooden shoes on hard floors and provides good traction on a variety of surfaces. Insole appears to be permanent but has sufficient cushioning. This is my first pair of ankle height pull-on boots and I expect to gets lots of use in both casual and work situations.
LOVE these boots. Ordered a 7.5, a little snug with thick socks, but I can tell they will break in so nicely. They are so comfy, perfect heel height and look so cute with rolled up jeans. Love love them
