Tall, hand-distressed leather boot with secret pocket on inside of shaft. Buckle strap detail on outside of ankle. Leather sole. Distressed pattern will vary slightly from pair to pair. This boot is made in the exact same way it was made over a hundred years ago, at the same factory. Every single aspect of this boot is handmade from start to finish, one pair at a time. This boot in particular was tumbled in a huge drum with tons of rocks and stone to get that perfect distressed look we all crave for.

**A Goodyear welted sole is a near-indestructible sole comprised of multiple layers of leather, stacked together and glued, then fastened through the sole with small cylindrical pegs of wood individually hammered in. It's a very laborious and time consuming process but creates a sole that can be reworked years later and able to last a lifetime.

Rated 1 out of 5 by So Disappointed! 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. 9.17.2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by my favorite best boot ever..although looks slightly different then the pic.. 9.7.2012
Rated 1 out of 5 by not impressed Ordered the grey boots, so disappointed!! They are like a dusty blue-grey, totally not what was pictured at all in my opinion. The one boot is so tight over the top of the foot by the buckle I can hardly squeeze my foot in, and once on they are a little loose feeling. Love the look of them in pictures, but really disheartened with the purchase overall for the price of them. 7.13.2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Contra Washed Tall Boots Love them, it`s better suited for the autumn, in summer it's hot, today it was 24, and I rubbed my ankle a little bit under the bone, but it's not a problem. 6.23.2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by WOW!!! I just recived these boots EXTRAORDINARY! It's hard to find boots so beautiful, with skin so good ... and let me tell you: this is not a bad smell! This is the smell of real leather! I bought a lot of shoes on the web, but often have a pungent smell of glue ... I hate that! In this case, however, I opened the box, I felt this scent that reminds me of the first time I went into a saddle store for horseback riding! What a thrill! Thank you, I'll still be your customer! A strong hug, 6.1.2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Contra Washed Tall Boot First lets just say, these boots looking nothing in person like they do in the picture! Free People knows this and they have done nothing to change that. So basically they are selling you something with a deceiving picture. Boots have no zipper so good luck trying to get them on, the leather is so stiff and poor quality, I have yet to get mine on and therefore have to return them. Very disappointed, I wanted the boots in the picture like I ordered, if they were going to try to pawn off the boots that don't match the picture we should have got them at a discount then. Love the boots in the picture and so bummed that is not what I received. This was my first purchase at Free People and not a good experience. 2.20.2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. 12.8.2012
Rated 3 out of 5 by Good and Bad 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. 11.30.2012
