I've been looking for a bootie that won't be awkward with ankle ones and rolled jeans. I'm also a bit of a boot snob, gravitating towards Fryes. I'd never heard of this brand but knowing that Spain makes great shoes I took a chance. Plus it was a good sale. I haven't worn them out yet but I can tell the quality is there and they're a nice balance of refined and rugged. The zip in the back is stylish and I love how it dips down, not just chopping your leg off. The zip detail around the ankle is cool too, but not flashy. The best part is that my size 9 1/2 feet actually look small in them even with a low heel! Fast shipment too.
