I LOVE these boots. If ever there was a pair of boots made for me, these are it. I fell in love with these the moment I saw them. This was my first Tony Lama purchase. There sizing is a little strange...I ranged anywhere from 7 to 8 depending on which boot I tried on (they were all wing tip/snip toe styles). These aren't as comfy as my Ariats, but they sure do get noticed a whole lot more! The contrast leather really makes a bold statement. These are also slightly shorter than my other boots, too. Which works out great for the slight boot cut pants that are showing up everywhere.
