These boots look great, nice and chunky and really well made. The leather is soft and they are so comfy! Lots of cushioning, which also makes them warm to wear so ideal for winter. The top of the boots rub slightly on the lower leg so you will need high socks or tights at first but I have found after some wear this lessens. They come up slightly large, I normally wear a 7 but got a 6.5 in these after reading the reviews and I am glad I did.
