I am so glad that I splurged and purchased these boots. It helped that I scored an amazing 25% off deal, but I would have paid full price! I had been wanting cowboy boots forever, but just couldn't find a pair that suited me. I am so bored of seeing the same boots everywhere I go. I didn't want a boot that looked traditional, because I like a little sass. This boot fit the bill. Every detail from the distressed suede, the sassy fringe, to the crown zipper-pull just make these boots amazing and wearable with any outfit, not just country/western. I always wear a size 7 and these were a perfect fit. They are comfortable and required no break-in time what-so-ever. The suede is beautiful, but it is slightly darker than in the picture. It's hardly enough to care, but the picture does make these seem whiter than they are. They are actually a light tan color. The inside is the cutest pink leather and the heel is distressed to look really fabulous right out of the box. We all know boots this cool have to look like they've walked a thousand miles. The Junk Gypsies know about style...and these boots are the best! You won't regret buying them!
