I received these boots yesterday. The color of the leather is beautiful and it is nice thick, rugged leather. The style of these is a little different, which is hard to tell from the picture as the boots are obviously too large for the model. The toes are a little more squared off than it looks and they turn up. I docked a star due to the sizing which I have found to be an issue with Liberty Black boots across the board-there is no consistency to their sizing. I have the blue boots with the stars that i ordered in a 9. They fit great. I have one of the fringed pairs in a 9 and I can barely get them on. I ordered and returned another pair in a 9 that was so huge i wasn't even comfortable downsizing to an 8.5. This pair is also large but with the thickest 'ski' socks I own they will work.
