Lots of positive reviews, Don't know why!!!
on October 3, 2013
I bought these boots as a replacement for my Timberland Boots that have worn out after 4 years of work use.
I decided to try these over another exact pair of the Timberlands I had because the reviews were overwhelmingly positive just like the Timberlands. But the price of these was $40 cheaper.
Boy was this a dumb buy. The description says the boots are leather. If by leather you mean some Kind of synthetic material as inflexible as cardboard covered in epoxy, sure. These are not leather. The box doesn't say leather, the tag in the shoes doesn't say leather, they don't feel like leather, they don't smell like leather. They are as stiff as could be while worn, and (while the sole is comfortable to stand on, the boot itself is far from.
If you're buying these for infrequent use, such as a night out or to wear with an outfit or two, no big deal. They are a great buy for the price, and they look very nice.
But if these are going to be for daily wear, stay away.
