I bought both black and brown in this boot. I really like the wedge style and buckly accents. Sometimes leather boots can look 'harsh' when wearing to work with dresses (I prefer suede b/c it softens the edge) but this boot doesn't come off harsh at all! The wedge, slouch and buckles all give it a professional look! Quality is good, there is adequate footbed padding (not a lot) but they are comfortable after an 8 hour wear. So far so good, I've wore the black ones twice!!
