I love these boots
. LOVE THEM. I purchased them last year, or maybe the year before, and they have been my fall/winter staple ever since. Living in Colorado, I experience major temperature swings during these colder months. Two days ago it was 45F and sunny, and these boots
were perfect over skinny jeans
(or tights and a dress or skirt, or under boot cut jeans
, whatever!). This morning it's 8F with snow on the ground; layered with wool socks
underneath my fleece lined pants
, these babies kept me toasty warm. They go from utilitarian to fashionista in no time, and are always good looking. Listing the number of times I've gotten compliments would be futile, it's been that many. I will admit the leather tie does come undone on its own more than I'd like, but the ability to loosen or tighten the width to accommodate either a thin pair of socks
or four layers on my calves, outweighs any inconvenience. These are well worth the price.
