Really like these, I purchased them in a size 10 and wear them everyday, they are comfortable right from the word go and have lasted really well. I liked them so much I purchased another pair for when these do break!
Great company to deal with, small defect was accepted (Photo supplied to seller) who immediately responded and offered a refund. I said its no big thing really and I will buy again as I was treated so fairly. The boots are a fairly narrow style (I have broad feet) but there is no problem as they are fashionably, nicely lined, so spread a bit when worn, so fit fine. Will definitely buy again from this supplier. Very pleased at quality and price.
Firstly, I read a few reviews who said to buy a size smaller, I didn’t and I haven’t found the boots to be too big, but just about right
What I did initially think though was that the boots were narrow, but on loosening the laces, and getting my feet in I haven’t found that to be a problem
The boots are stylish and great value. The colour is maybe a little light for my own taste, but I purchased a brown shoe shine stick and this has brought the colour down a little and added a nice sheen
Before colouring the boots I did see that the leather didn’t look to be waterproof, but I’m thinking with the colouring and shine, this may add some weatherproofing, but the boots are and so still won’t be waterproof and are more of a fashion boot, this is also bourne out by the flat sole, with no grip, so the boots aren’t wet weather boots. Not a problem for me as I knew this before buying
Overall I’m very impressed with the boots, stylish, comfortable, functional and great value
After removing these from the box you could tell straight away these were well made and look like a premium shoe. The only downside was that I am normally an 8 and these did seem a tad to big. Maybe it's because they're pointy. I'm not sure if a size smaller would be too small.
Shame they don't do half sizes as I think a 7.5 for me would fit perfectly. I tend to wear thick socks especially now it's getting a bit colder.
They also have a very soft almost memory foam like padded sole which was a pleasant surprise when I put them on for the first time. Very comfortable.
Really great for the time I had them, the 6 months they weren't broken they were always being complimented, they were super comfortable and I thought I had cottoned on to something great. However in no time at all the stitching on the brogue came loose and a hole began to form on the inner side of the right foot growing to the size of a small, off duty, Czechoslovakian traffic warden.
Edit. Thought I'd give another pair a shot. Had them for well over 6 months now and no damage to them except usual wear and tear. My previous pair must have been a one-off and I am now very happy with them.
I Needed some black shoes the next day and I couldnt get to the shops. There wasn't a lot of choice for next day shoes on Amazon so I ordered these at 6pm and they arrived the next day. I was a little aprehensive if they would only be good enough for a single use before I would then have to get to the shops to replace them. However, I was pleasantly surprised. They look smart, are comfortable and are exactly what I needed. The leather upper is supple and I could also put some insoles into it for cushioning. I had to stand up a lot! So I wear them regularly. No problems.
Decided to write a quick review as the other reviews I read for these boots were very useful as a guide to sizing options and my purchase.
The boots I purchased were at around the £26 mark, which for the price are very good quality and arrived within a few days on free P&P. I'm normally a size 9.5 to 10 but after reading reviews on size I ordered a size 9 which is a size smaller. At this smaller size they area very good fit. The quality is very good with nice brown leather uppers and man made soles. The leather is a little stiff and not soft or supple, however I would have thought that these will be a good long lasting boot once broken in. The boots look good on and after a couple of days should wear in nicely. As a comparative I would price these boots in the £50 to £60 price bracket in high street shops. Overall very good quality at a very good price, just make sure you go for the smaller size option.
Followed the reviews of others and ordered a size smaller. I usually take a 9 and so going down a full size was daunting and worried at being too tight, but the other reviewers were dead right and they fit as good as my usual size 9's. Leather is a bit inconsistent but happy with the grainy look and brogue styling. Can be worn with jeans, or more formal pants. Look like Loakes but at a much cheaper price. Quick delivery from Footbox... overall, very happy with purchase.
Update: After a year of owning a pair of Tan boots I purchased a pair in Black. As before I ordered a size down and the fit is good, so you need to definitely do that when ordering. I can say these boots are very durable and have no signs of ankle wear that I have experienced with other footwear. For the price you can't go wrong!
I may be one of the very few females purchasing these boots for themselves but I was looking for a definite "boyish" brogue boot to wear with my skinny jeans. I had looked at various price ranges up to £120 but figured how often would I actually wear them? Read all reviews and then opted to purchase the size 6. I am a size 6 and these are generous fitting which I prefer as I hate my feet feeling trapped. I'm able to wear a decent medium thickness sock with these and they feel so comfortable. I'm going to swap the laces for red ones as I want a particular look. I paid £26.99 for these and I'm truly pleased and amazed how good they look and feel for the money. The distressed leather look is pretty accurate of the pictures and just what I was looking for. Very very pleased I took a chance. My purchased was based on the great reviews and size choice too.
Always nervous about buying shoes and boots online, I took the advice, bought a UK8 instead of my normal UK8.5-9, the fit was perfect, so buy a size down from your normal. The leather is good, the shoe width remarkably tolerant to my very broad feet, in other words, the boot moulded quickly. A real pleasure is the soft, cushioned sole which makes walking in them extremely comfortable
