"I loved these as soon as I saw them, boots with zippers wrapped around em' they're so different. So first off the picture doesn't do them justice, when these are in the light the zippers shine bright like chrome spinners on a car lol foreal I went to show my bf and even he was mesmerized by them and kept saying how good they looked. The shoe is true to size but it is a little narrow in the toe area but I figured I'll just get a shoe stretcher for that and the footbed in the shoe is oddly designed with an arch in it but that can be fixed with a foam cushion insole. All in all I love them but they just need a few minor adjustments. The zippers do make a clink sound when walking but they can be adjusted so they don't. Yes the zippers on the boots can really be zipped /unzipped!"
