Awesome pair of boots for the fall. Great super durable leather and made in Africa. I love that they are so different. They are bit big so I wear a pair of heavy socks with them.
I loved the look of these shoes on line. The concept of Oliberte's fair-trade company based in Ethiopia made me decide to take a chance on these boots. In short, they are beautiful and the construction is excellent. They have an unique, rugged-chique look. They look best with jeans, but you can wear these with a pair of chinos. I think they are a little casual to wear with a tie. They tend to run large and wide in size. I have wide feet and it is difficult to find boots that are comfortable, so they were an excellent choice for me. My criticisms of the boot are the following: the color is a little unusual and the foot bed is pretty flat. The color is more of a blue-grey than a true grey color. It limits the versatility of the boot. If they were a dark grey or black this would be the perfect casual boot. In summary, this is a unique boot of excellent construction that runs large. Expect more of a blue-grey color if you order them.
First, I must say, this boot looks better in person than in pictures online. The grey brushed color is more of a blue-grey, but looks really sharp. Fit as expected and very comfortable through a week of use. Just a little different than most of the boots you see people wearing these days, enough so that people will notice. I wear them both with the laces done up all the way, combat-boot style, and with the laces loose and pants tucked in to the boot. Both look great and I'm ecstatic about my purchase.
