"I absolutely love these boots. The color is a great chocolate brown, and the lace-up doesn't look cheap. I usually wear a 7.5 but ordered an 8 and those fit pretty well, with just a little space in them, but they feel perfect. I have really small calves, like twig legs, and I had to tighten up the laces as much as they would go - but that fit. I'm not sure how well they would fit someone with much more athletic calves than me. Overall, incredibly comfortable right out of the box and they look very nice. Great buy (especially with some rewards certificates to lower the price a little!)"
