****Update after 6 weeks: I am sending these boots back again because after a month of wear the left boot lost all its shape around the foot. The suede was wrinkled and floppy and it looked more like an Ugg boot than the nice chunky biker-style I paid for. Overall I've been very disappointed with the quality of this product and I wouldn't recommend it.*****
The first pair I received from Amazon had a zip so stiff on one boot that I couldn't open it! They replaced no problem as usual, but even the second pair have quite stiff zips.
If I'd paid the full £95 for these boots I would have been disappointed. However on sale at £57 they are of reasonable quality and look good, even if they are a bit less chunky in real life than I hoped. Whilst they are comfortable, the sole is a bit on the hard side and some thicker lining for warmth would be nice. Also be warned the black wears off on everything - don't wear your best white socks!
I originally ordered a size 7 as I'm a 6.5 but it was too big and looked massive. I have quite a high arch so in a 6 the right boot does feel a bit tight across the top but within one day's wear it's eased off nicely, and the 6 is a much better fit all round.
