"If you think that these look great in the picture then you'll love the way they look when they arrive at your house. They are the most gorgeous chukkas I've ever seen.They're also very very comfy. The leather is super soft, too soft. I've had my pair for less than a week and they're already as worn as I'd expect a pair of leather shoes to be after the first year. I've had them exactly 6 days and they scuff so easily that they look old already. I've even had the leather tear in one place I'm not doing anything out of the ordinary the leather is just so soft it split open.For anyone planning on buying these I would suggest the first thing you do when you get them is either take them to a cobbler or treat them yourself to harden and toughen the leather. They'll look different maybe not be as beautiful, and they'll be far less comfy, but they'll last instead of being a $170 disposable shoe. I'm not hard on my shoes, when I buy a pair of leather shoes like these I expect them to give me at least 5 years, but I have shoes that are 15 years old and look less than a year old.On style and comfort i'd give these shoes 5 stars easily. They fall apart so easily it makes me want to give them 1 star because no leather shoe should fall apart this easy, but they're just way to gorgeous to only have 1 star.I usually wear a 10.5 and I have a 10 in these shoes and it still feels like I have extra room so I'd suggest ordering a half size up."
