These boots are great! I bought the brown last year, and the black ones this fall. They are great in wet weather , and nice looking for the office. I wear them with slacks, skirts with leggings, and with jeans. I am not a fashion-oriented person, andI go for comfort, but these boots get compliments. The boots are stiff at first, but quickly soften to a soft buttery leather, and conform to the foot. I recently re-conditioned the brown Bogs I've had for a year with mink oil, and they did great. I'd recommend these to anybody.
