I bought these boots after a very long search for flat brown boots. I have a black pair from another brand that I absolutely love, and wear them constantly on weekends over skinny jeans, however they don't make them in brown. After reading the reviews, I decided to order these boots a half size down from what I normally wear. When they arrived and I tried them on, they were still too big. The way these boots are fitted in the calf made them look incredibly bulky, even over skinny jeans. The material and style seem to be of decent quality, however as I was trying my pair on, one of the buckle loops broke. Overall, I would recommend these boots to anyone who has bigger calves that may not always fit into other boot styles, but for anyone who fits easily into other boot styles, I would say that these may not be the boots for you.
