Just to make it clear i dont work for AMI.
I got the shoes today on nov1st and ordered them on the 24.
when i got them they were packaged in a shoe box inside of the box of other things i ordered from AMI. All of the things I orderd looked like the picture. the sitching on the boot was fine so was the zipper. They were clean and stiff with paper to hold their shape. The color was true to the picture. I ordered a 7 and a half and it fit true to size.
the only think i would say is that as it states these are faux suede so i suggest not wearing them in wet weather unless you spray them with something for waterproofing.
