Colors are not true...
Very disappointed with the color. I ordered the red ones first and they arrived looking brown and not rustic at all. Returned those and then ordered the Khaki and they appear grey. For such an expensive item, I'm really disappointed. Judge for yourself, do these look distressed or anything at all like the picture they show for the khaki ones?
Love these boots
I really hesitated about spending the money on these boots but they came to mind every day and I knew would regret not purchasing them. I purchased the grey/black color as I wear a lot of black. I am so glad I bought them. I am so very happy with them. I am a true size 7 and purchased the 37. They fit perfectly and are so comfortable! My husband did spray them with leather protector based on the other reviews. They are so unique and well made. Gone are my plain black boots! I like that you can adjust the buckles as to weather or not you wear socks, can tighten them if you don't. Love love these boots, You cant go wrong!
Perfect worn in look
I have had these for about a week now and they are doing pretty well. A little hard and tight around the front part but I believe it will take little time to wear them in. The details complete the boot! As for the sizing, I would say they are more long than they are wide/thick. Don't wear them in the rain, it drizzled lightly today and I saw darker spots where the rain touched. Would give 5 stars if it was a little bit cheaper.
I got these for my mom for her birthday in NATURAL. THEY are SO CUTE. I am going to get me a pair also. The straps are adjustable which is nice. She cant wait to wear them. I love that they are so UNIQUE.
I am usually a size 6.5 and ordered these boots in the 37 and they fit great! There is enough room that I'll be able to wear them with chunky socks in the winter. I don't usually have a problem finding shoes that fit so I think I have pretty average 6.5 feet haha, and so if you are usually a 6.5-7, these will probably fit you well! I ordered the light grey colour, and they are a little bit darker than in the pictures online but they look awesome nonetheless. I love the black straps and sole because it will be easy to integrate these boots into my mostly black wardrobe-- but they are so different from just a plain ol' black boot. Can't wait to pair them with my black leather jacket/bags/pants/all the other black leather things I own. They smell excellent too-- you can really tell that these are a high quality leather boot. I am very impressed! One of my favourite features is that the zipper is that same oxidized silver as the buckles-- one of my boot pet peeves is when you have a beautiful leather boot with a cheap plastic zipper! These small details and quality hardware make all the difference! I am so happy with them, I can't stop smiling! Based on previous reviews I will probably spray them a few times with a leather protector before wearing them outdoors. But so far so good! I'm looking forward to seeing more styles by this brand! Good job Free People, these are one of my favourite purchases to date!
I am so in love with these boots. These are one of the best pairs of boots I have ever bought. I get compliments all the time. I ordered the red, which is a great color BTW. They are incredibly comfortable and stylish. A couple drops of water left a mark but then it disappeared within a week if that even seems possible. I didn't spray them, but I need to because they are worth it. I highly recommend these boots.
Lovely but leather seems vulnerable
This is a very expensive purchase for me but I really loved the style. (I got the grey ones) I am just shocked to see how badly the leather has responded to a few drops of water in the first two days of wear. I always wear leather shoes and boots and very rarely do I spray them with protection. I think I have only felt the need to do that with suede in the past. So I have been surprised and disappointed that these boots seem to have become instantly permanently stained by some small droplets of water. I guess I now have to spray them with some sort of water repellent spray. But the damage is already done. I think it would have been more fair to write at the very least a warning of this in the accompanying little paper tag, saying they need spraying to protect against water. As I say, I haven't had this much trouble with other leather shoes and boots, so it doesn't strike me as something you can take for granted or expect that people all do. Pretty gutted that my expensive boots are already damaged. Otherwise I would have been really happy with them.
