Good quality, BUT TAKE NOTE:
I reallyyyy wanted to give these 5 starts, and was so excited to be able to invest in a pair of vegan boots that looked like they'd go the distance, BUT unfortunately as much as I think they're mostly good, the design needs some serious tweaking:
- Firstly: The buckles are very unfortunately placed so that when you cross your legs (which I believe most us females do) it digs into the opposite leg... something so uncomfortable (bordering on painful at times!) that I have not been able to get used to it even after a few weeks now. I literally can't cross my legs properly because of it, and it's the first time ever I've not been able to do this due to my footware, so it's very annoying.
- And Secondly: although I have slightly larger than average calves (not a problem with these boots though - yay!) I have remarkably average sized ankles (they are neither on the small nor large side). So I was surprised to try these boots on and quickly notice that they were either designed for someone with VERY large ankles OR the proportions were way out, because there is so much room around the ankle area that the material bunches significantly there. Not only does it not look good, but also much more likely to damage the material sooner and decrease it's longevity. Plus it means I spend all day pulling them up.
The only reason I am not giving it less stars is because of the material, as I am grateful that they are available in the first place, because good quality vegan leather boots are…
