I saw some similar boots for approximately $190 at a high end department store at our local mall I really liked; the logo was embossed on the boot instead of Ariat's buckle (which I love the buckle). I'm not one to buy style but I will invest in quality. The $190 boots at the mall had leather color overspray on the boot. Not only are Overland's boots a better leather, they are an investment in quality for years to come. If you love fashion it's an extra bonus.
