Now, unless you get into the really expensive boots (I've always had problems explaining why you need a pair of boots made from eel or ostrich) there are some fairly standard construction techniques you'll encounter. As price decreases, the amount of leather decreases and is replaced by man-made materials. Good boots have leather soles and uppers (the part covering the foot and the part that wraps around the leg - also known as the shaft). Soles are sometimes manmade to avoid slipping and the upper sometimes has a leather shaft with the rest of the upper being made out of manmade materials.
This pair was a mix of leather and man-made materials, so they weren't expensive. But they were the weirdest combination of materials I'd ever seen. The soles were manmade with slip-proof tread (OK). The part covering the foot was also manmade (they weren't expensive so I assumed you get what you pay for - but they did look a little "plastic"). But when I got to looking at the shaft things got really strange. The shafts are a mix of manmade and leather with the front half of the shaft composed of manmade materials and the back half of the shaft being leather.
One - They didn't blend together very well. You could tell that they weren't made out of the same material. They just didn't look right.
Two - Whatever they used as manmade materials pushed the limit of the definition of "leather-like". They looked cheap.
Three - If this is Laredo's attempt to be able to truthfully advertising them as "a combination of leather and manmade materials" or "with a leather shaft"; then they've really pushed the limit.
The other pairs of boots I ordered were full leather uppers and didn't cost that much more.
I sent this pair back.
UPDATE: I received email from Sheplers today. It was a “form” email with return instructions an notice of a 10-day refund. No attempt at curing the issue. Boots going back...my dad trusted Sheplers...wish I could.
The upper boot has a nice amount of detail. The lower boot is soft yet pretty formal looking. The sole itself has a lot of support, especially around the arch.
I would imagine these could be used on a regular basis and would hold up well. I wore these for two different costume parties and they still look brand new.
Overall I am very satisfied with the purchase!
New boots came in today. Replacement was fast and hassle-free. The stitching looks good, no scuffs on the boots. I'll chalk my first order up in the "s*** happens" category. These are very nice looking, comfortable boots. Construction seems solid. Could make a decent work boot in another color but I will say the Copper Kettle seems pretty susceptible to scuffs. That doesn't really bother me because a certain amount of scuffing from frequent wear gives boots character, but if you are going to be doing serious work in these boots I would probably opt for tan. They fit true to size for me, but I have a fairly narrow foot and I could see the width being a problem for some. Overall I am very happy with my purchase, and pleased that my initial problem with the purchase was resolved quickly and painlessly.
