I ordered these boots after borrowing a similar pair from my college-aged daughter. These boots, however, are better suited for all age groups than the pair she owns. They work very well with the current skinny jeans and are suitable for many looks. I am very happy with the boots; their style and quality.
I was truly disappointed in these boots. When I took them out of the packaging, they had a strong petroleum smell which I thought would disappear with a good airing out. Well, that didn't happen and the packaging has since been thrown away or I definitely would have returned them. I guess they will be ok to wear out in the rain because I don't really care if they get messed up.
I bought this to cosplay Tsukasa from .Hack. Works perfectly for that! It's a very simple style, but very light. That's better than being too heavy, but I can tell it won't last long. Good thing I wasn't planning on using this as an everyday shoe.
