I personally find these boots very stylish-- they were the closest I could find to my favorite old pair of boots (Rieker, style that is no longer made) that had to be replaced. They look great, and the banana bread color goes with everything. They are not real leather, but I knew that before ordering them; I think of them as "vegan", and the man-made material is sturdy. I had to order a full size larger than I normally wear in order to wear thick socks with these boots (I had ordered a half size up, but had to exchange when they were too tight with wool socks). Having worn them outside, they do not keep my feet as warm as I hoped, so I might add wool inserts. Overall, I'm very happy with my purchase, although I will probably order different ones when these are finally worn out.
Love this boot! I have the Franco Sarto Poet and was looking for something similar in a different color than I already had (light camel brown) and this was it. Really like the adjustable buckles that you can tailor to the size of your calf. I usually wear an 8.5 but I found with my other Franco Sarto boots that an 8 fit best and these are the same fit. Love my other boots by Franco Sarto and I think I will really like these too. They seem super comfortable. Great color too.
Love these! I have hard-to-boot calves -- they're muscular and barely fit wide-calf boots, but they get narrower below the knee so I have a huge gap between my leg and boot with most wide-calf boots. These are perfect, because of the two buckles. I have the lower buckle on the loosest, and the upper buckle on the tightest.
These boots looked great online, but when I received them they looked very cheap. I checked the inside tag and it said that it was all man made. None of it was real leather like it says in the online description. Back to Zappos they go!
