AS98 makes wonderfully unique footwear and these boots are no exception. They are very cool for an OTK book, but for me, the black leather is maybe a bit too "chalky" for me to keep - considering I was hoping for more of a "true black - with mild distressing".
Quality-wise, there is no comparison. The leather is thin, but sturdy - and very flexible...instantly comfortable.
One more thing to consider is that due to the boots being constructed with a zipper on the side, there is no room to 'adjust your fit' when the boot is all the way on...meaning if you do not have model-thin legs (as shown in the photos, they will not fit like the do online, but more "fitted" at the top of the boot...
I'm still on the fence, however, regarding keeping them, because I wanted a true black, and for the price, they may not be worth it to me - though they are truly gorgeous and ultra-high quality boots.
Overall, as long as you are aware of the color and the difference in fit, these boots are truly gorgeous.
One more thing - I wear a size 9 US, and compared to other AS98 boot reviews I've seen - saying this brand runs large, these do not. I purchased size 40, and the fit was perfect. The 39's would not have worked in these - or any other AS98's that I own...
