Ordered these, arrived quickly - Loved 'em - beautiful boots. Sadly, dry winter and didn't need them for a few weeks - when I did, within a couple of months they had split down the back seams (and I have legs like a sparrow!) and along the seam where the sole and upper join, and across the top of the toe. To late to return them, just had to dump 'em. Yah, boo, hiss!
