I recently decided to return to my "cowgirl" ways and start wearing boots again....much to my regret, the boots I had no longer worked with a recent foot disorder I had acquired over the years. Those boots were given to a grateful friend and I purchased a pair of Corral boots (grey/black) that were awesome. Giving my old boots away left me without a pair of brown boots. I went in search of brown boots and considered several pair before deciding on this particular boot. I'm glad I made this choice. The boots are Justin Brand Tony Lamas - made in Mexico. (We steer away from those not made in the America's!!!!) Anyhoo, they are gorgeous and the fit it awesome, even for one who has a high arch and needs a wide toe bed.
