A good looking boot and I was excited that I had finally found a quality boot at a reasonable price. When I opened the box I tried them on and laced them up to make sure they fit. The only complaint I have is when tightening the laces there is a tendency to for them to slip out of the leather lace strap (dogears) and when the laces are pulled above the leather the laces started to cut into the leather. Not sure how long it would have lasted after repeated tightening before it cut all the way through. To bad too. Good looking boot and comfortable.
