Rated 3 out of 5Â by deerheart black is a dusty brown, not chocolate brown
Not too impressed by these, found the color dull and the distressing not as genuine as on the studio shots..Also the quality of the leather is not that wonderful...i had hoped that 'the studio shot boots' were the boots i would receive...but based on the reviews i knew there was more than a 80% chance that the boots were not true to the images. So i gambled with poor odds and lost - on the plus side, they are supersoft, scrunch easily and also true to size. Slender foot. I would have needed 6 1/2 for a great fit so that in combo with the dullness of the color and the mechanical looking distressing make these a no keep. I'm ordering a few more styles and continue my quest for the perfect tall biker boot. FP please adjust the studio shots accordingly...

I received these high priced boots on December 6th 2012 & when I opened up the box I thought that they had mailed me the wrong boot color, But after reading the box about 20ty times before It sunk in my brain that this is what their color black looks like, because it's not the same color of the picture to the left. After seeing that I still liked the look of the boot. I was pretty excited that the boot had the slouchy look the sag look just like in the picture. I honestly disliked the material of the boot. It is like super thin & in the winter I hope if you purchase this boot you should also purchase some extra socks to wear with them. The material I think isn't worth the $485 that they are asking for for this boot. Looking @ the website pic you'd think the leather was thick but it's not. If you pair them with skinny jeans the look is amazing. I like these boots & if you can get over the fact that the color isn't the same as the website picture & the material of the boot isn't really worth the asking price. Then I'd say go for it pay that $485 & add these amazing boots to your collection.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by coconinja Best boots ever
I was reluctant to order these, I have had bad luck with boots from Free people. After much deliberation, finally ordered them and am so pleased with these boots. My favorites already!!!! Not quite as brown and rich as in the pics, but that is true of most items pictured on this site, they can make things look extra rich and great in the pics to where you want to buy everything you see..... :0) These boots are worth it and run true to size. And very comfortable.

Had these boots came exactly like their picture, I would have LOVED them. The picture makes them look authentically vintage and destroyed. In person, they are not authentic looking - they look a little factory-made with patterned distressed marks.They also don't gather down like the picture, they stay pretty much straight up your leg, which I actually like. The brown is not as rich in person as in the picture. Having said all of that, I do wear them a ton, they are cool boots and fit true to size (with thin socks or tights). Just don't count on the authentic look that the picture promotes.

These boots are amazing. But contrary to a few of the reviews i read (im not sure if the product was changed due to previous reviews) I found my boots to actually be the color of the picture. More brown than black, i was actually hoping for black and was happy all the reviews said they were. Not mine. They were just like the ones in the pic. A lot of the reviews also said they werent distressed very much. Mine were overly distressed, even moreso than the picture. I was a little dissapointed with the leather, for the price i expected a bit better quality. These have a very intersting texture, they almost dont even feel leather! However when it comes to my calf, beggers cannot be choosers and if you have a large calf (mine are 16") These are truly a 16.5" circumference and I was overjoyed they fit with leggings, im hoping with a bit of stretching jeans too! The smell is a bit overpowering at first, im sure it wil decrease with wear. Overall a great boot, but I have cut myself off from boot shopping this year after spending this much!

Â by matchb_x Stellar, solid boot.
These boots are rad. Perfectly worn in and incredibly sturdy without feeling incredibly heavy. The color of the boot is not accurately represented in the photo; instead of a warm chocolate as the lighting in the photo depicts, these are more of an ashy, dusted up black (see photo attached to review). If you can wrap your head around the fact that you're not buying a brown boot but a black one, you shouldn't be too let down when these boots hit your doorstep. Note: I'm sure that these will slack with wear, and that I could style them with the shaft scrunched, but the boot shaft doesn't lay as slacked as in the photos (which is my personal preference).

I have been waiting for these boots and was so excited to get them in the mail today. But very disappointed when I opened the box. First of all, the pair I got had 3 horizontal scruffs on each boot and that was all the distressing! I know it says each boot varies.. but it is nothing like the pictures. Even the other reviewer with the picture is different but at least the distressing was ok. And the shape of the shoes is drastically different too. Anyway, It was horrible that I did'nt even tried it on and sent it back right away. Definitely not worth the money and wont wear it (at least the pair I got) even if it is free. Great prototype but poor execution.

Â by FPMichelle Amazing Boots, Color is not exactly as shown
I was obsessed with these boots, I am still am. They are amazing, they fit true to size. But the color is different than shown in the photo. I know it says the color will be slightly different, when I opened the box, I thought they sent me the wrong color. I am sending mine back and keeping my fingers crossed the next color is closer to the one shown.
