Beautiful boot, easy to put on, am returning it for a half size larger. The toe area is narrow and there isn't much space for room if you are wearing socks of any thickness. For comfort would recommend a half size larger if you have a wider foot.

Excellent quality. Nice comfort. Maybe fit a quarter size larger than expected. Made in Mexico. Soles are NOT leather but are a synthetic that looks and feels EXACTLY like the real thing - probably the best idea in shoes. All the feel of leather soles (excellent for dancing) but the water resistance of a synthetic. Very nice. Glad I bought them.

Overall extremely happy with the investment in these classic Chelsea boots. These are more urban, not like clunkier Frye men's boots, and with polish can pass for dress shoes. If you usually wear wingtips or loafers for work, these are more comfortable and their slender profile can pass with tie and jacket. They take some patience (or steaming) to break in (I have a wide foot), and I was unimpressed with the casual, distressed look so had to polish the oiled leather a number of times before they would take a shine. Inside, they are soft glove-leather lined, with nicely padded and cork-lined foot bed that is extremely comfortable. I m not a fan of leather soles, so had rubber taps put on and now wear all the time with tie and jacket or casually. Incidentally, in a downpour, the boots were quite water resistant (unlike loafers), and though the leather sole did saturate, my socks stayed dry. I shopped a number of Chelsea boots and these are more traditional, with a less boot-like profile, than most other brands. I own Frye engineer boots, which are very rugged, but these are more streamlined and softer. Not one of Frye's U.S.-made boots, but an excellent product that I'm happy with.

Nice looking boots of high quality leather. Require strenuous brushing before first wearing to remove white waxy substance. Soles are very slippery until they get scuffed up. True to size.

Beautifully-made and comfortable Chelsea boots. The shape is classic -- not too boxy, and not too pointy. Construction and materials are outstanding. If you normally wear sneakers or training shoes, you will find the leather sole uncomfortable at first. There is not any cushioning, but, as the boot breaks in -- after a few daily wears -- it becomes very walkable, and provides a great deal of support. The finish is faux-distressed, which doesn't really work with a suit, but you can easily polish these black.

I'd also recommend: Blundstone, Alden
