The picture does not do these boots justice. The craftsmanship and design are incredible and the black crystals add just the right amount of sparkle without being over-blingy. They go with absolutely everything...the brown leather, gray inlays and black accents are positively stunning and best of all they have the Old Gringo fit that never fails to feel like they are broken in when you first put them on. Love buying boots from Rivertrail Merchantile...great service and they only carry top of line. High on the $$$ side but worthy of every penny!
