    I'm a Varvatos fan, and had high expectations for these boots. From a style perspective they did not disappoint.
    However, the quality of workmanship was very poor and definitely not at the level you'd expect for this price point. After just two months my sole on one boot is 50% separated. The other boot has much of the stitching unravelling and the top leather just flaps to the point that you can see my socks.
    I wear these as fashion boots, not work boots. I've not been hard on them.
    Very disappointed.

    I purchased a handsome pair of John Varvatos Dearborn boots in late December 2013. I had been told of the high quality nature of Varvatos shoes and their excellent craftsmanship. Because of this, I ended up purchasing a pair at Gravity Pope in Toronto, Canada.

    After this purchase, I had the shoes weather sealed and wore them sparingly over winter (along with Snow boots). While the Varvatos were quite durable for one month, I began to notice the leather drying, and used vinegar & water to remove salt stains, and treated the boots with Mink oil. In February I treated the boots again, noticing that the leather was constantly dry--even after repeated applications of Mink oil. By March, the leather was cracking and the soles had become worn down. I treated the shoes, left them for two weeks and brought them to a well known cobbler in the city. The leather had continued to crack by this time, at which point the lining of the boots had become visible.

    I was alarmed by the speed at which the leather cracked, but my cobbler was even more distressed, saying she had not seen leather break down so quickly, and that the speed of this degeneration suggested a manufacturing issue. She insisted that I contact the manufacturer and offer photographs of the shoes, as they looked to have several years of wear, instead of just three months.

    When I wrote to John Varvatos, I was told by two customer service reps (Maricela and Adrian) that Varvatos shoes "should not be worn in rain or snow." WOW. Just thought you should all know that these expensive boots can't withstand even minor weather. Feel free to click the pics below to see what could happen to you if you buy Varvatos boots!

    If you want pics of the boots, feel free to message me...
