First time I've ever gone on a trip and only packed one pair of shoes. Wore them daily as soon as i got them and no rubbing or blisters (airports and all). I was not prepared for how often I would wear these or how many compliments I would get...like in a bathroom stall one time. Just like other reviewers, customer service was great and helped me figure out the right size to order(this was my first pair of real western boots so i was clueless). Anyways, love them and will def buy another pair. i'm full on cowgirl now!
