Rated 1 out of 5Â by starrr Not like picture, Hard, Cheap
The picture of these boots looks as though the leather is supple, shiny where not distressed, and the toe of the boot appears to be a fairly standard rounded point. The boots that arrived were the stiffest leather I have ever encountered on a shoe. The leather was a flat smooth STIFF color with zero give or bend. I put them on and it literally hurt my foot to try and press them into the very hard akwardly shaped foot. The toe curls upward and the top of the foot area presses hard into the top of my foot. I couldn't stand to wear them for more than a minute. I have very slender feet. The size length was just fine...true to a size 8 length, just horrible shaping. Returning.

I love these boots. After reading other reviews I was hesitant but there is nothing about them I don't like. I ordered the brown color They look as they are depicted on the site. The fit is great. I ordered a 1/2 size up and I am glad I did. Very pleased. Would love them in black also.

These boots are super cheap looking. The "distressed" marks are placed too symetrically, and the leather looks cheap.
I sent them back.
Rated 2 out of 5Â by papirbyrd meh..
I was very excited to come across these boots (simple, leather riding-style, interesting distress,etc) until they arrived..my immediate impression was that they seemed poorly made by some machine set to do a harsh rub here, harsh rub there, and MAYBE land in the right spot, and call it a "distressed look". i was willing to deal with that and maybe doctor it up myself until i put them on. so disappointing. i wear a 7, sometimes 6.5. these were entirely too snug to justify. i have narrow legs and feet so that was not the issue- - my toes were crammed into the front and there was no possibly way to just get them "worn in". SO for the sake of review-if you are ok with a crummy machine job of a distressed look, which could possibly be remedied with some working dedication and artistic abilities, at least get a size up from what you Think you might wear. and then kick yourself for paying so much.
Rated 1 out of 5Â by katty1 Not at all like photo.
The photo of this boot shows it off much differently than it is. I bought a size 8 in black -- I normally wear a 7.5 to 8. The fit was tight and leather very very stiff (though it may soften in time). As others noted hte discoloration looks ike cow spots and is looks forced, not distressed. . That too could be fixed with sandpaper as others suggested. However, the toes are very round (Mini Mouse looking) and the tips curve up which looks ridiculous. The leather also looks cheap which makes the overall boot lookes low quality. I returned immediately. They do look very cute in the photo but be warned, it is misleading.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by kittybell has potential
i bought the black ones and returned them. i think these boots have potential, but you have to know a few things up front. 1) the shaft is quite narrow. i am 5'10" 140 lbs, slender-to-athletic. my sport uses my legs; i have calves. most boots fit, albeit snug sometimes. but these are no where close to zipping. 2) i bought a size 8. i wear a 7.5. they run about 1/2 to a full size short. i would recommend going up a full size to make room for a sock. width was average. 3) the distress marks look very manufactured on the black leather. the scuffs are in uniform locations and look to be done with sand paper. they don't appear natural, but could be acceptable for the price, or possibly reworked if you are creative. if they fit, i would not have returned them.

Â by LaROARa Nice Boot!
I ordered these boots in a size 8 and they are a tiny bit small; (usually I am a 7.5 /8)
-they fit my calfs really nicely and look very slimming (this is why I bought them)
-I ordered the brown and the aging is very poorly done
-The toe turns up in the front so I suggest getting a half size up
-I was expecting a higher quality sole for the price of these boots
- I have only had them for a few days but from what I can tell they are not the kind of shoes you want to spend all day walking around NY in
on the up side; They have a certain charm- they are made of nice material and they the perfect balance between firm and slouchy
