These boots are absolutely wonderful - they encompass everything I wanted from an online boot. Amazing price, very good synthetic suede, well made, comfortable (I still use a gel insole though as I do a lot of walking). My only warning for future buyers is that the calf is huge. As in I can fit my whole arm in there with my leg and still have room huge. Granted I have chicken legs but even a friend of mine who has larger calf's tried them on and they were large on her. Luckily I can take them in but if you do not know how to sew or don't want to take them to a show repairman, hold off. That being said, they are my favorite out of my order :).
