a very sturdy boot. much heavier than an Eastland boot i have that looks superficially similar. dressy enough that i could wear it to work. Takes some real effort to get these on and off, and to break them in.
I got these the other day and i sized down 1/2 a size, and they fit perfect. Yeah they arent the most comfortable boots out of the box. But give it about 2 weeks for the leather to soften and 3 weeks for the soles to form to your feet and you are good to go. $310 for boots might be alot, quality of the boots aren't AE or Alden or oak street but it is up there with a lower price. I had people complain about the silhouette being a bit boxy, but when i got them they were O.K something i can deal with
This entire review is solely based on my initial impressions after wearing them only once. I ordered the same exact size as my leather dress shoes and the fit was spot on. May be different if you are going by sneaker size. The shoes arrived on time and in flawless condition. The briar slick color is gorgeous and goes perfectly with blue jeans. You can tell right off that the boots are high quality and the leather will last for years. I developed a hotspot on the back of my right heel the first day I wore them but it may have been due to not wearing a more robust sock. Didn't happen on the other foot though. The boots will take a bit for me to break in considering I don't wear them but twice a week. Looking forward to a nice broken in look. After the first day, typically, the outside of soles were dirty but seem pretty easy to clean up a bit.
