From the moment i received these boots, i can't take them off. Like being a child on Christmas day. I can't stop looking at them. Can't wait to wear them out. The violet is distressed. I didn't see thus in the pics. They are prettier in person. So many colors. They fit true to size. I have many OG boots. I do wish they would put more padding in the foot bed. If you want more cushion, go up .5 size. With that said, I Love OG boots. I have not been disappointed w any of them. RTM is top notch too. I try to buy all my boots from them.
