An indulgent purchase but I could not be happier. I normally take a 7 in boots but read that these fit on the small side so ordered an 8 which I have found to be perfect. I love the contrast between the two leathers and the buckle detail. Zips function on both sides but I only use the inner ones when taking on/off. A great sturdy sole and waterproof too which is a bonus. I've mostly worn with tights and skirts so far and am looking forward to pairing them with dresses and skinny jeans too.
