I need another pair of black moto boots like I need a hole in the head. But the girl can't help it. Since the majority of online reviews seemed positive and since I don't own many square-toed boots, I sprung on these at sale price.
But...straight out of the box I wasn't impressed with the leather. LB has some pretty beautiful leather shoes in this same price range but guess they skimped a bit here. The leather is thin and a bit shiny in places yet cheap and dull in other spots. Plus, the hardware embellishment is flimsy and not unlike what you'd find on a shoe 1/2 this price. Payless quality basically, IMO. I found a review on another site that mentioned how thin the leather was so perhaps this boot suffers from some inconsistency in quality.
But the overall style is cute enough so what about fit? I'm usually a 8.5 in most flat boots; I ordered the 8.5 and these were TTS, length wise. However, I found them oddly wide at the heel (they slip w/each step) but oddly tight in the middle and over the in-step. (And I have neither a wide foot nor a high instep/arch). The toe box itself is decently roomy, and perhaps they'd stretch out a bit over the the in-step but I can't see someone with a wide-ish foot finding these remotely comfy. If you're planning on wearing winter socks, I'd order a 1/2 size up.
The out sole is rugged, but soft; no clunky noise as you walk. The insole offers decent support but prolly not enough for a long day out. The shaft circumference on my average calves was more than roomy--any more gaping and they'd venture into galoshes territory...tho w/o a side zip they kinda had to be cut generously. The ample space is nice if you need to tuck in thicker pants. And I'm a fan of the 10 in high shaft-- a really versatile height for many looks.
But with the fit so wonky and the leather just 'meh', these are going back. I'm comparing them to similarly priced moto inspired boots I love like Betsey Johnson in Ariss and Kickers in Trestrep. I'll still search for a good square toe option (and certainly won't abandon my beloved LB), but the Aaid ain't it.
