Hatchett Harness Boot
New Favorite Boots! <3
I utterly adore these boots. They are so much better in person. Yes, the left boot is a tab smaller than the right boot, but overall, they fit really well. They look cute with EVERYTHING!
For the sale price, these are a must have.
They felt a little bit tight at first, but they stretched out pretty nicely. They look awesome, they aren't heavy, and the leather is really nice. I am satisfied in almost every way. Unfortunately, there is a ridge under the ball of the foot on the right boot. The texture is kind of like if a coffee stirrer was implanted under the sole right behind the bend of the toes. I am hoping that I can find a thin enough insole to cover the ridge but be comfortable on my feet. All the problems with the right boot may be why we don't see more "Made in Mexico" tags.
Perfect boots to kick some @$$ in.
So buttery soft and comfy with amazing detailing. The first thing my husband said was "mmhmm!" when he saw them. I replied with, "Smell them!" They are smelly in the best of leathery ways. The right boot was bigger (width wise) than the left boot, but they'll be fine after some breaking in. I'm happy that I ordered these, buy a pair and you'll be happy too. Not to mention, a total bad @$$.
awesome boots once you get your foot in
saw these awesome boots at a FP store. strangely, i could get either foot in the right boot, but there was no getting the left boot on. figured it was just an oddball pair and since the store didn't have another to try, i ordered them as soon as i got home. oddly enough, it was just the opposite w/ the pair that shipped -- the left boot popped on easily, but i had to cram and cram to get the right one on. it's like the opening of just one boot in each pair needs some serious stretching.
that being said, once the boots are on, they feel just fine. and they are awesome, awesome. fabulous details. the fleur de lis back and angled edge are so distinctive.
Just got these in and love them! The leather smells so good! They are very different and have lots of beautiful details. I ordered the Scot boot first but returned them ... they were not worth the money and very difficult to put on and take off. These are so much better!
I love love love these! I love how tough they are, they feel and look great, so tough. They definitely look better in person so if you're on the fence, I'd go ahead and order them.
Unfortunately, I'm the awkward size between an 8.5 and a 9 and I went with the 9 because of what the other reviewers. They're a little loose on my foot but the 8.5 might be too small... Everyone was correct, the right side is bigger than the left. So weird.
tried twice to make these work
Sadly, I found these amazing looking boots to be way too tight across the toes and too loose in the heel. I wear an 8 and had to return those. I tried an 8 1/2 and they were too loose in the heel and still snug in the toe. To go up to a 9, I think the heels would be too loose to be comfortable even if the toe area was perfect.
They look great and I wish they worked for me.
Awesome style, poor construction and fit
I was so psyched when these arrived; they're just what I was hoping for. The style is awesome -- it's a great-looking boot. But, while the left boot fit perfectly, the right boot was way too big to be comfortable, especially in the heel bed. My right foot is bigger than my left, and I have lots of harness boots that fit just fine on my right foot, so this is definitely a problem with the boot quality and construction. It's interesting to see that another reviewer found the exact same problem; maybe something is wrong with the right-foot last on which the boots are constructed?? I'm really bummed... I had to send the boots back to exchange them for another pair of the same size; hopefully this pair will have a right boot that's true to size! In my view, I shouldn't have to pay for return shipping, because this is a problem with the quality of the boot, not with my choice of size or style.
