Disappointed in quality
on January 26, 2017
I'm a fan of the boot style, but so disappointed in the boot quality.
I bought a similar pair of these boots over 10 years ago. The only difference in style is the belt buckle placement. 10+ years ago the belt was on the back; now it's on the side of the boot.
The leather appears to be made of cheap quality and smells chemically treated. The upper half of the leather had pin needle bumps. The lower half (ankle and foot area) of the boot's leather felt stiff, hard and too smooth.
The cognac color advertised is more carmel. The boots I received are more of a brown color. The color of the boot appears to be painted on. When I adjusted the belt, the belt felt thin and seemed like it was going to tear. In addition, the color rubbed off the leather.
If you know your leather and are looking for quality leather, you will not find it in these boots. If you are buying just for style and not quality then you probably won't have a problem, but these boots will not last the amount paid.
Overall, I do not recommend these boots. I will not buy style over quality. I am returning this product for a refund.
