SIZING: I'm a size 6 in shoes and boots always run a bit tighter, so I get at least a half size up. 6 1/2 fits me perfectly
FIRST IMPRESSION: I got the Pewter and when I opened the box, I was a tad disappointed with them visually. The shiney pewter parts were seemingly spray painted and the paint job itself was a little splotchy and uneven.The black shoe laces were too contrasting in person, and frankly looked like I was wearing wrestling shoes. I swapped the laces for gray ones and they look infinitely better, in my opinion. I'm also planning on dulling the pewter parts.
BOTTOM LINE: They are salvable, personally for me the contrasts were too much. Unless you really want some boots with major personality, I'd pass on these or get a different color of the same. I'm sure the others are great.
Where to Wear it:
Cool for school, Going out / date night, Hang-out wear
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
