Â by Lulu7 My favorite brown boots...
I received many compliments on my first wear! I wore to work all day and they were very comfortable. I really want them in black too! The brown color is a distressed look, the leather feels great! So far so good!

Rated 3 out of 5Â by NewYorkCityAnthro Not what I expected
I lusted after these boots--I love the side zipper, I love the heel height and thought they looked amazing on the model. I received them in the mail yesterday and was, sadly, disappointed. Maybe my expectations were too high. The leather has subtle streaks in it, which I initially thought were faint scratches from shipping, but realized they were all over both boots. I guess it is meant to be some sort of design detail, but the effect just made the leather seem sort of cheap. It wasn't a deal breaker, but I thought it was worth mentioning. The leather is stiff and there is a big "Made in China" stamped on the inside. The zipper also didn't close super smoothly, contributing to the overall cheap feel. The biggest problem, however, is that the top of the shaft hits my knee cap in a super uncomfortable way. I have other knee high boots and have never experienced this problem. I think there is a reason that the model photo shows the boots from the side--standing up looked absurd--the boot sits really awkardly on my knee cap. Back they go....
For reference, I am a 9.5-10, usually 9.5 in boots. I ordered a 9.5 and it fit fine. Regarding the shaft height: I am 5'10" and the boot came up too high--Maybe on a shorter peron it would be an over-the-knee?

Rated 4 out of 5Â by dameofdamascus lovely boot
after reading the previous reviews, i was a little iffy about ordering these boots because all the previous reviewers were tall women, and i was worried that these boots would look awkward on me since i am short. i was relieved once i got them in the mail though; the boot DOES hit the kneecap, but i do not think it looked awkward at all. instead, i thought these boots made my legs look longer and sexy! i got the brown and they had a distressed look to them, which i like. my only issue though is the zipper, sometimes it gives me a little trouble, which for the price of these boots shouldn't happen. otherwise, these boots are awesome!
