These shoest are guarenteed quality from Carlos Santos. They fit perfectly and the lining will keep one's feet warm during Nordic winter.
The only downside is that the provided shoe laces weren't long enough to be used with both upper speed hooks.
These boots are very comfortable, warm, and elegant.
I believe the sizing recommendation in the description is spot on.
The stitching and construction is flawless.
Kostas is very pleasant to communicate with and appears to believe in customer service after the sale.
It was with great pleasure that I was one of those to be the first to receive a pair of these lovely and rugged Shearling boots. As always, Kostas was an absolutely delight to work with. And the boots do not disappoint. These are among the most comfortable, yet stylish and rugged boots that I own, if not the most stylish. I suspect that they will be my primary pair of hiking boots for the next 10 years. The faux fir, merino lining makes the shoes so comfortable, not unlike putting on a pair of in-home Ugg slip ons. Yet, the rest of the shoe is built to survive heavy wear and tear. Goodyear welted with a commando-style sole, with a thick, yet supple rubber, and a lacing system that makes it easy to synch these shoes tight, this is the boot to own. In a pinch, I could wear these with a pair of chinos and people would think I had a pair of elegant shoes on, and yet, these shoes will look most at home out in the wild, on the trails, and in the rain. I would not hesitate one bit to purchase these wonderful shearling boots. They are a worthy investment from a company with a true passion for shoes.
