These boots are stunning. The craftsmanship that went into making this beautiful pair of boots is outstanding and all the materials used feel of good quality. The soles are sturdy and non slippery and I believe these will last a long time. The only issue I have is the sizing. I'm a woman with wide feet, who should be a uk ladies size 7, but I usually buy ladies size 8 and gents size 7 to accommodate my foot width. With these boots I have assumed that they would be gents sizes, so I have purchased a 7, however they do feel a little bit small and definitely narrow - it is so difficult to buy shoes online and not being able to compare two sizes at the same time, my regret is that I didn't realise this on trying them at home that I would be better with a bigger size and now I have worn them outside. I know real leather usually gives a little, but it is my first pair of vegan shoes and I will see if they behave similarly. I would recommend them, just wear them indoors for a little bit longer to see if the size is truly a good fit for you.
