As for size, I have to disagree with most here who say they run small. The shoe itself is not small, once you get them on. And therein lies the problem. The hard shell that supports the heel is much bigger on these boots than on most others. And because it run right next to the zipper, it leaves a very tiny gap to get your foot through - especially your ankle/heel (no laces on these, so there's nothing you can do to widen the gap). Once the boot is on, however (and you're going to need a shoehorn to get these on, believe me) there is plenty of room in the footbed - lots of room in the toe, nice snug width without being too narrow. The leather seems nice and I'm sure it will stretch after awhile, making it easier to get the boot on. Although I can't imagine even not needing a shoehorn with these - the space to get your shoe in is just that small. Style wise, these are a pretty rocking pair of boots. What you see in the pictures is exactly what you get. Nice distressing on the leather. The metal studs and stitching are a great detail - enough to catch your eye, but not so much that it looks gimicky. And despite the total lack of arch support, they're pretty comfortable (use an insole if you need the extra cushon/support).
I was aiming for a great pair of Mark Nason dragon boots, but he's changed his style to suit the masses. Glad to see that someone picked up the torch. These boots look great. The style is what I was looking for. The zipper on the side works great and doesn't snag. The sole is thin and is functional, but a little more arch support would be beneficial for under pronators like myself. FYI, for all style boots like this, I'd recommend a shoe horn, as others advised. Saves wear and tear.
Awesome boot, great style! Honestly ordered a pair first that were actually cut differently between left and right. Good ol' Zappos though, they exchanged a fresh pair that matched and fit so well. This style does run slightly small, but it is leather, so a few wearings will get them fitting so well.
Great looking boot and Very comfortable to wear. I did have to order a size and a half larger than normal. Generally I am a 8.5 and the 10 fits great. Use a shoe horn to get them on otherwise the angle of entry is a little difficult.
