Have been wearing the black model for about 3 weeks. Super comfortable boots. You really do not notice that they have a heel. Due to use of quality and natural materials (similar to other Canadian boots I have owned), they are nice and warm but not too warm to wear indoors. They look great with leggings but also work surprisingly well with a casual pencil skirt and sweater. I am very pleased and would consider purchasing another pair, but they are rather pricey so will probably wait. Even with the price, these are quality boots which I think will last a long time. My only hesitation, and not a big one, is that the leather is very soft and supple so I wonder if they might get scuffed or scratched more easily than a tougher leather. Not a big concern and have no hesitation in recommending these lovely boots!
