Love these boots, they are very me. However, at £150 I did not bite. A few weeks later I see them for £55 and that was too good. Delivery was swift. I love them so much I bought another pair several weeks later when I saw them drop in price again, this time I paid £60. The colour is lighter than what is seen here but not too light. The second pair I ordered I went for the dark chocolate colour for a wee change but ended up with an identical pair to the originals. It's not a problem so I didn't send them back. I've kept those ones aside for the day my originals are discarded. I'll be wearing these boots for a long time.
Some issues that seem to have resolved themselves. First attempt at getting the boot on was problematic, couldn't get my heel in. I persevered and that was ok. The right boot felt like it wasn't tight enough when walking, too much slack, whereas the left was a perfect fit. I'm under the impression everyone has 2 different sized feet but had never really noticed this in any footwear I've had before. I had really thin socks on that day. Next day with normal socks I barely noticed it and it hasn't bothered me since. These boots feel similar to cowboy boots only more comfortable to walk in. Definite similarity in the design of the heel. Previous experience with cowboy boots tells me these boots will be cold in the winter months. The rubber on the heel wears down really quickly. When it comes to getting them re-soled it might be a good idea to get a slightly thicker fitting of rubber for whatever heel wears down the quickest.
