Cute, quality boots
I have had mine for a couple of months now and they have worn in very nicely. I was torn between these and the Silverton, because I wanted something kind of rugged but cute at the same time. Ultimately, I liked the overall look of these better - too bad they don't offer the same features of the Silverton with this look. Anyway, they are a nice quality leather. They are water "resistant", and having splashed water on them a few times, I can say they dried with no visible signs of having been wet. I did, however, wear them to a concert and spilled beer all over them which stained the leather... I cleaned them with glycerine soap and a little Murphy's Oil and the stains disappeared.
Someone commented that they were slick - I've worn these on my icy wooden deck and didn't seem to have any trouble.
I get compliments on these every time I wear them. If only they were waterproof, I'd give them 5 stars.
Also, I find they run true to size.
