I received these boots as a Christmas gift about a year ago. They were at the top of my wish list so I was very excited when I opened them. Unfortunately the sole seems are coming apart causing the sole to fall off. I will probably have to take them to a tailor and hopefully they will be able to fix them if it is even repairable. I always received compliments on them and they were my favorite boots by far, I took good care of them, but I wouldn't recommend buying something so expensive that doesn't last longer than just over a year.
