I received my Capistrano boots about a month ago, but didn't want to write a review until I had worn them for a while. First though, I have to say that my entire experience was great. Speaking with Sarah on the phone through receiving my beautifully packaged purchase was not only informative but pleasurable. How often does the CEO of a company you are planning to make a purchase from, call you on the phone and have an enjoyable conversation with you? Sarah helped me to finalize my choice by not only providing her experience with boots and knowledge about her products, but she also knew the boots of my size that were in stock! As I said, I wanted to wear the boots for a little while before reviewing my purchase. The quality of the workmanship is immediately evident. The boots are beautiful. Sarah recommended ordering the same size as my dress shoes for this boot, and she was right on the money. After experimenting with different pairs of socks, I decided that I like a little heavier sock which gives the soft boot a cushiony, bedroom slipper, type of feel. I wear them regularly now and they are exactly what I was looking for. My recommendation is "don't hesitate", you won't regret buying from Ranch Road Boots!
This is my second pair of boots I have bought from Ranch Road and they are extremely comfortable to walk in,they look great,and fit perfectly.
We have searched for a boot like this for a long time. My husband absolutely loves everything about them! They were hard to get on at first but have gotten better. Don't give up on them if they are difficult to get on. It is worth the trouble. We will be ordering more from Ranch Road!
I purchased the Capistrano in black a few months ago and decided to order the brown a month ago. I loved the first pair so much I had to have both colors. The quality of the leather is excellent. The lining in the inside of the boot is very soft and contours to your foot like a glove. The arch support is very good too.
As time has gone on and I’ve put a few miles on these boots, I gave them a light treating of otter wax leather oil - the leather sucked it right up and the boots are getting a nice patina. The leather has softened nicely since wearing them.
Some reviews state that the shaft of these boots are not as wide as most others - this is true. My calves are slightly more wide, but I like how they fit snugly and don’t flare out like most boots do. This should not be a problem for most people.
Overall, these boots are truly a great value for the price. The construction is solid, the design is classic, and the feel is very comfortable.
