You wait your lifetime for a perfect black boot and San Antonio Rose has made the wait worthwhile. It's such a beautiful marriage of black and silver and very classy. I bought my shoe size and once I get my high instep in the boot, the fit is perfect. The heel is higher than I normally wear yet is has a solid support to it and the antique silver makes it really elegant. I can't wait to wear it to work with my fall and winter skirts.
