These boots are far more beautiful in person and the pictures don't do them justice. To be honest, Overland needs to start showing their shoes on models so customers can really see how the product looks. These boots exceeded my expectations as to the quality, however I'm not truly sure I will keep them because of the suede like leather that was used on the whole boot which will not be stain resistant. It's interesting to advertise a waterproof boot, but then to use a leather that is not smooth leather that mink oil can be used on, but rather will need to be cared for as if the whole boot is suede and that will stain. That being said, they are exquisite in every essence of the word and as another reviewer said, they are a work of art. They are adorable, warm and comfortable. I have thin calves and even these were a bit hard to zip up. All and all, the most beautiful boot I have ever seen, but with caveats.
