With a cut that hearkens back to classic workwear rain boots but a more urban finish, this boot sits halfway between current trends and classic Americana. Goth may be out of date, but some of its elements still have their place in the fashion world, like this combat-boot inspired design with refined curves.

A very good boot for the price. It’s warm for the winter, and good rubber sole gripping for snow and ice. There are only two important downsides to keep in mind. The boot is made more narrow than most boots. I would highly recommend purchasing at least a half size bigger than what you usually order. All the boots I own are 10.5’s but I’m boing to have to order an 11. But it is worth reordering. There is also a very strong potent plastic smell that comes from the boot. Almost like a brand new tenis ball. If you’re very sensitive to smells, you might not want this boot. The smell should go away after a couple wears. Over all, a great boot to own.
Shoe sizing is a bit big… Actually, almost all the Chinese-made shoes on Amazon are about 0.5 to 1 size(s) too big. I’ve bought walking boots, bowling shoes, and now these. And, they’re all kinda roomy and difficult to get a perfect fit.That said, with these boots, I settled on a size 7 USA with dress socks. With cotton athletic socks 7 is a tiny bit snug. But, size 7.5 is just a tad too big- unless you wear thick wool boot socks, in which case they fit fine but then look a little big. I normally wear size 8 USA Men in New Balance & Under Armor sneakers, and 7.5 in Sketchers sneakers & work shoes.Other than that, these shoes emit a strong oily chemical odor. So I doused them with cologne and dryer sheets, and that seems to have helped. Construction-wise, they look very average and not that rugged. Probably will last about a year if not your primary walking shoes.
The shoe looks well done. I really like it, although a little worried the upper part might not be strongly attached to the sole; it seems like it might come off quite soon. I’ll keep an eye on it and would update my review as time goes on.

These shoes fit perfect. Usually when I buy shoes I have to order a half a size smaller because most shoes today are manufactured too large. Shoes aren’t manufactured the way they used to be but these shoes are perfect . These are a perfect fit. Eye wear a size 7 and I was able to get a size 7 from this manufacturer and it fits perfect and they were very comfortable all day today. I will order other shoes from the same manufacturer.

A little tight and narrow; but overall my favorite pair. Thanks!
The shipping was very fast, the boots are a little cheaper than expected (see: Price) but that’s okay. They are pretty comfortable, overall. But I can’t wear them yet because they smell soooooo bad. If the smell doesn’t go away I’ll have to return them. I can’t wear these in the office smelling like that.
