These are very well made, high quality boots. The distressing is not symmetrical (I did not expect it to be). The olive color is green but is dark so not overtly green unless you are in a bright room. They are very comfortable and fit my smaller calfs. I am between a 7½ and 8. The 7½ was too snug and the 8 was not available. I would buy the 8 if they become available in the color that I want. They are expensive, even on sale, but worth it.
These boots are a head turner. My husband is a huge Pliner boot fan and now I know why. They are pricey but the quality is worth it. The foot bed has a lot of cushion. A little light on the support but the toe box is wide enough for my aging feet . Love love love these boots
I ordered these in both black and the olive color. The olive color mixed with brownish black was a bit to military looking for my taste. Had it been a solid olive I would have loved it. These boots are well made, good quality leather and soles. I typically wear a 9.5 to 10 in boots and the 9.5 fit perfectly, no problem with loose ankles either. I have a normal wide foot and the width of the boots felt great. I wanted to love these for the detailing of the leather over the heel but, did not. Perhaps a little more contrast between the color of the leather and the sole would have highlighted this detail. (Studio lighting in the photographs makes them look great!) I kept trying them on to feel a wow factor. I looked at them thinking would I envy these on someone else? Ultimately I just found the style a little ordinary, not a bit of "WOW". Am returning these in search of something with a little more pop.
