Rated 5 out of 5Â by embo The motorcycle boot of my dreams!
These boots are, hands-down, AWESOME. They are punk; they are ba-a-a-a-d. They will turn heads and create a thrill of envy in all your friends. Since they are also incredibly comfortable and built to last 3 lifetimes, that makes these boots truly one of my all-time favorites (and I'm a boot freak). Details: They run true to size and are SO-O-O-O comfortable to wear, right out of the box. I have had no issues with loose or lost studs -- but my pair came with some spares just in case. And once you have the lacing set as you like, they are a breeze to put on and take off, thanks to the inner zip. The one thing to be aware of is that the profuse and intense studding makes certain positions -- sitting crouched on your haunches or cross-legged -- a bit dicey -- but hey, what's life without a wee bit o' pain? Photos: They do NOT resemble the final pic offered here (the plaid leggings shot), but much more closely resemble the other pics: rugged, thick, distressed (mildly), with studs that are between shiny and dull (a sort of bright matte).

I love these boots! I had read the reviews that said they run small so I sized up and they came and were too big! But I was scared to send them back and my normal size be too small so I've been double socking it and its perfect! I wish they came more distressed looking like the pictures but I still love them anyways!
Rated 4 out of 5Â by HRKW Cool, but not quite as cool as you'd expect
These boots are of thinner leather than you'd expect with as heavy as everyone says they are (they're not that heavy at all), but they do smell very strongly (not of leather, but of some kind of dye or chemical). They turn up a little too much at the toe for my liking, which causes the bridge of the shoe to press down on that part of the foot, and they run half a size to a full size small (so order up). Also, I was hoping for a thicker sole or one that made some kind of sound when I walk, but these are silent as cat's paws. Otherwise - they are very cool. They're so awesome looking, in fact, that my husband, who thinks a person should own three pairs of shoes and that's it, actually complimented me on them. Twice. So, that's worth something.

These boots are FANTASTIC.
I can't help but feel like Tomb Raider when I wear these. I normally wear an 8.5 so I went with the 9. Very comfortable and room for chunky socks if needed.

I was a bit nervous about ordering these bad boys online due to the other reviews about sizing variation. However, I found that they fit perfectly, just tight enough that when the leather stretches out they feel like a second skin! I wear a Canadian/American size 8.
It's true that they don't look as "roughed up" as in the photo, but they will with wear. I haven't taken mine off since recieving them.
Some of the other reviewers mentioned they didn't like the smell...these boots smell like leather, which they are made of (funny how that works out...). It's not overpowering or anything!
Totally awesome pair of boots.

I was SO excited when I saw these on sale. I normally wear an 8.5 so I got a size 8 and they are perfect. They come with a tiny little bag of extra studs which is nice. They are so comfy and they turn lots of heads. I get so many compliments on them! I have a pretty large boot collection and these are the best.... hands down. GET THEM!!!!
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Lovejeans I really like these....
But I think they are too much for me! I'm not sure what to wear them with but they are beautiful! The leather is great and the spikes are very cool! They are for a specific look and the price is great though for what you get! Quality is great.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by Laurelskye Getting your edge on...
These are not for you if you are a librarian or hold a political office. But if you have the life style that says you live on the edge, without restrictions or just want to look like you have that freedom of choice, then these are the boots for you. I sized up to 9, instead of my usual 8.5 and they are really comfortable. A little hard to pull on, even with the full zipper, as they just kind of "flop around" but once on, they stay up fine, however, I leave them partially untied and partially folded. I like to pair them with my FP raw tulle skirts, of which I own both the black & the blush and love them both. Note, these are NOT studs, but spikes. I personally like the over the top spike boots of JC and am a fan, but I always pair them with something very feminine and unexpected, to make them fun. A bit tricky to pull off if you are ultra boho or conservative, but for me, they rock!
