I plan to use these mostly as outdoor boots. Delivery was fast. These boots are handsome, comfortable and seem well made. I'm not sure how long the rubbery soles will last, but they feel cushiony and are great to walk in for now. They even feel good on my foot with a broken toe - although at first I thought they might be too tight for that foot.
Also, I thought they would be black - that's what I was expecting and hoping for, but wasn't really sure based off the online photos.
Turns out they are definitely dark brown - kind of a chocolate lab color.
I'm going to hang onto them, but I was a little bummed they weren't black!
I came back to look online, and now that I have seen them in person, I can see the brownness a little better in the photos.
I'm hoping the comfort and durability factors justify the cost. I'm pretty hard on outdoor boots.
So far, I like them.
