Elegant, sturdy, and very well built Dress Boot with French Toe
I wanted a black dress boot and I liked the French toe of the Maverick over the round toe of the Capistrano. The boot is impeccably crafted from high quality cowhide and lined with very smooth soft leather in the shaft with a reinforcement for the heel to slide down. The interior is lined with suede which probably requires a bit more break-in time. They were stiff at first, but began softening after conditioning, stretching and wearing briefly several times. Initially talcum powder helped me step into them and a boot jack to take them off, but after the 4th or 5th use I was able to pull them off myself. The insoles are so smooth and comfortably conform to the shape of my foot. If I find any criticisms at all, since I'm tall at 6'7" the 10.5 inch shaft is a bit short on me and one of the pull straps rubs my leg below the calf. It bothered during the break-in period.
The Mavericks are a great boot and I don't regret purchasing them, but I was still drawn to the simplicity and Spanish styling of the Capistrano with the tall narrow shafts. So I bought a pair in Brown.
