I have had this pair for a few years. I get a ton of compliments on them!! I was asked to send the link for them so I decided to write a review upon reading the “reviews”. I’m glad the zipper isn’t any longer I actually think it’s too long! I hate tucking in the zipper handle. They are very true to size I wear an 8 but have 7.5 bc they were out of 8 and absolutely had to have them. Old gringo are the hardest brand to break in. They are super tough. (A plus!!) They definitely are not hard to remove, maybe because you have to bend over??!! I do agree about restocking fee but they ship free and extremely fast (3day). You can’t have it all your way!!!
