1. Color is inconsistent from pair to pair. I ordered these and loved them but a couple weeks later the price briefly dropped so I ordered a new pair and returned the others to get the lower price. I ordered the same color but the second pair looked more beat up and 'cheap' than my original ones. So if you love your boots but not the color (or maybe even the quality) I would try ordering another pair to see if your luck improves.
2. I have a wider foot (but not wide enough to be considered wide in shoes) and was concerned when I first put the boots on. I wear 7.5 but ordered the 8. The boots were a bit tight, but after wearing them for a few hours, the leather began forming to my foot and now is quite comfortable. I've been wearing a thin sock but would like to wear a thicker one to keep my feet warmer. I'm sure the leather will conform.
3. The footbed is hard, so I will be getting a gel insole for my boots.
4. Take some time to adjust the laces to your leg. Once you work that out, it is not hard (or long) to quickly loosen/tighten to get them off/on. But it does take a bit longer than slipping on regular boots. I can get them on in less than two minutes. (See pic)
5. Try tying the laces around the top for a different look! (See pic)
6. The grey boots are more of a grey-beige color. I was hoping for a true grey, but they go with pretty much everything so I'm keeping them. I love that these can dress up or down. I've worn them to church and to volunteer at school.
7. I'm giving this four stars because of the inconsistency in quality (my experience plus that of other reviewers) and the hard footbed. For this price, both issues shouldn't be a concern. But neither was bad enough to be a deal breaker.
If you're scoring these boots at a considerable discount: buy w/ Prime shipping (for free returns), expect defects, inspect upon arrival, and judge for yourself if it's worth it. I am reasonably happy with my factory-seconds pair for a steep discount!
I've been eyeing these boots for over a year, so when this one color/size combo went on super-duper-sale i finally purchased. I went with my usual size 8, though i do have a slightly wider than average fore-foot and high instep. For me these fit with thin trouser socks and NO room to spare; this is suitable for me since i'll be wearing this boot in the spring, but i would say that this boot runs 1/2 size small. If i had gotten these for cold weather, the next size up may have worked with thick socks AND a footbed insert. They were very difficult to pull on due to my high instep, but once on were comfortable. From the sole, front shaft measures 17.5", and came just to the bottom of my kneecap; the back detail is about 5" shorter. The shaft fits tightly with tights and thin leggings, but if i wear with jeans i will need to re-lace for a little more breathing room (for reference the widest part of my calf measures 15")
The plum color is a perfect balance between unique and neutral...like a blush grey-brown? The pictures don't do it justice. The pink undertones are more visible in sunlight, and especially when viewed with the wine-colored suede back panel.
That being said, i think there is a reason i go these so cheap. There are several minor but obvious quality control issues with the pair i received. The sole glaze (which i thought to be glue at first glance) is applied sloppy: spots of it are on the leather in 3 places, on one boot the glaze didn't make it into a corner of the heel, and on the other boot the glaze is globbed and laid so thick on the forefoot that it has lost traction and i nearly killed myself taking three steps on a hardwood floor. In addition, there is one tiny nick in the toe of one boot, and on the other boot's sole there is a little cut-in that seems to be a manufacturing error. BUT from a distance of 3 feet none of these things are noticeable. The glaze seems to be of a natural origin (some percentage of beeswax???), and chips off under gentle pressure with my fingernail. I am going to do some research tonight, maybe do a little hair dryer test, to see if i can fix the sole slippage. I'll report back if i have any luck!
