Beautiful boots. I have several pair of El Nats--clogs, boots, and sandals. I have been happy with all of them. These boots are a welcome addition to the "family". Although my usual size from another source ran big and had to be returned, I was able to find these in the next size down right away. They are comfortable and stylish. They promise to be stable, regardless of walking surface, which is important to me, as I'm often walking on gravel or dirt. They also look good; the heel is a little slanted so it's not a complete block shape, the height is good for an ankle boot, and the dark brown nubuck is gorgeous. I liked them so much I ordered them in black, which is equally nice. I look forward to wearing these for a long time.
