These are the best looking boots that I found on the Internet, and that's why I bought them. I really like the style, the square shape of the tips, and the zippers on the sides. Unlike most of the casual-style boots, these are really stylish and well-designed boots that would be perfect for wearing with suit or some more upscale outfit. The biggest shock came, however, when the package arrived. After opening the box, my nostrils were hit with such a strong odor that I couldn’t believe it! It must be some paint, dye or other chemical used during production that sends this stench. I thought that, although excessive, this was normal and it will dissipate or disappear after some time, so I just took the boots out of the box and put them close to my front door. But when I came home the next day, the entire apartment stank like my new boots! My wife was ready to throw them away, but I wanted to keep them, so I put them outside on the balcony – this surely would remove all stink! Sorry guys! After three (3) days of being outside in the fresh air, they still stink like skunks! No, really Oxford & Finch (boots’ designer?), this must be your worst design decision: the best styling fused with the worst stinking materials!! It’s like Beauty and the Beast in one package! Please change your materials! These boots deserve much, much better rating! As for the tip for other users: to remove the strong chemical odor, just make sure you keep them in the garage or the basement and take very long walks outside during the cold and snowy winters!
