Not the leather you're expecting
on March 1, 2016
These were so disappointing when I took them out of the box. They're being returned.
I think that the pictures are really over-lit. I was expecting full-grain leather, like a biker boot. The boot in front of me is basically suede. It's darker than it looks in the pictures, really pebbled, and kind of...fuzzy? It looks really cheap, and I can't treat these with mink oil and shoe polish like my other black leather boots. I would say to check out the pictures of the brown boot, because that is a much better example of the finish on the leather. My hands also got stained black from just touching these for a few minutes.
I will say that I put them on and they were very comfortable. But like other Uggs, they do feel really flat.
In terms of sizing, I wear a womens 7 and the 5 fits well. I have relatively thin (?) feet and small calves, though.
