While I absolutely LOVE Rivertrail Mercantile, I was extremely disappointed with this pair of boots. I have several pairs of Old Gringo boots, and I felt like the quality of this boot wasn't nearly as nice as the other boots I have. While the embroidery is nice, it almost had a "dirty" white look about it and certainly not a pretty "cream" look as in the pictures. Just not the boot for me! Thank you Rivertrail Mercantile for making the shopping process so easy and issuing a store credit. You guys are simply the best!
