I love these boots. Actually, I love boots in general. I've already bought 4 pairs this season, but these are my favorite. I wear them to work everyday, where I am on my feet and on the move almost constantly. I am HARD on shoes, but these are holding up nicely. I do wear insoles with them, but that wouldn't be necessary for just casual wearing. I also wear them on the weekend with a dress, they are so versatile. I've gotten numerous compliments on them. You can't go wrong with these boots!
