The boot is cute and is exactly as pictured. The only problem is that the calve opening is too big for my tiny leg but I still decided to keep them. I like the fact that it is a jet black boot not faded in anyway. I do feel like the material could be more thick. I have another pair that I've owned for three years, they were $10 cheaper but much thicker. Anyway, out of the boots I've seen in person, I like these the best. Plus they are super comfortable. I ordered them in my usual boot size of 7.5 and they fit fine. A 1/2 size bigger would be better for those who wear thicker socks. One other comment is that I wore them in the rain and snow this weekend and they still look brand new. That was without waterproofing them which I have done now. I would definitely recommend them.
