I looked all over for a pair of tall lace up boots, and finally found the last pair of black ones in my size at RTM. Wore them all day first time out of the box with no issues. These boots get lots of compliments and make me feel like a rock star. The laces adjusted to fit my calves perfectly, and the zipper makes for easy on/off. These boots have it all – style, comfort, and quality. Will definitely get another pair if they restock size 10.
