Bought these to use as slippers! Loved the look out of the box but I had to send them back immediately because they had no grip on the sole and I was slipping and sliding on the hardwood floor and carpeting! Not a very good gripping sole for anyone with balance or age issues!! Otherwise, they looked great and were quite comfy!
The size is definitely off... Order a size up (which is what I did). I sprayed them with suede leather protector when I got them. I am a Science teacher and I ride a scooter to work on most nice days. These boots are perfect for riding and for walking around the school. I got several compliments on the style. They are light weight boots, not heavy. If you are wanting a heavy\/sturdy boot, these boots are not for you. However, if you are looking for a light weight boot with an emphasis on comfort and style, you will be happy with this selection. I noticed other reviewers said the boots fell apart after wearing them for a day. I have worn mine all week and they still look brand new.
