Rated 5 out of 5Â by Gracieg3811 a classic boot
I am a boot fanatic and I am very particular. After reading the other reviews I decided on these. Yes they are stiff and I did oil them after I received them to enhance the color. I think this is completely normal for new boots. Over time, with wear, these boots will be fantastic. The fit is great. I am 5'8, 130 pounds. My calves are average. I love the way these boots are a little bigger on the calves and they are tall enough for me. Love, love, love.

I was very excited to receive my boots, delivered in an incredible box, where I unfortunatley had to pay â¬50,- for the tax and shipping where I was not prepared for.
Anyway, I was happy to see my boots, although afterall I was a bit worrier because they didnt looked carefully put in the box. The seemed folded en kind of damaged, because the leather had bits out of the leather. I know the boots have to have the 'worn-look', but this was damage was different.
Also the colour was not as deep brown in the picture, but a bit off. When I polished the boots they looked much more pretty and I kind of carefully recovered them to what they have to look like in the picture.
I really love them, they look beautiful, I am a tall dutch girl (1.81m) but if your a short I can imagine the boots dont look right on you, or dont wear very comfy.
Afterall, I am very happy with them, I will have to break them through during walking and resist some blisters, but all worth it!

For reference, I am 5ft and these measured about 17 inches high. They hit the middle of my knee cap in an uncomfortable way, pressing very much against the front of my legs, with a lot of extra room in the back. I have muscular legs so extra room in the calf area isn't at all an issue with these boots. I wear a 61/2 on average and the 6's fit just fine minus the discomfort from the cut of the boot. I got the Tan and it is NOT at all the vibrant reddish brown in the photos, not even close. I don't know if 'filters' are used on Free People's photos but the difference was extreme. They are a dull basic brown. The boot looks well made but due to the color not matching the photos and the awkward cut/fit, they went back.
