I love these boots! I wore them the first day I got them and received so many compliments on them. The distressed black is a great color. I have an easy to fit 8 1/2 foot and these fit my foot perfectly, they are tall and at first I was nervous that they fit tighter around my calves compare to my other tall boots. After I wore them just one time they stretch and loosened up a bit and now fit great. I highly recommend these boots!
