These boots are very high quality, comfortable and stylish. I was a little leery at first especially so close to Burning Man ordering boots from China. But they arrived weeks earlier than needed and even 4 days earlier than promised. The other concern was vegan leather -- very oxymoronic! But I'm a convert, soft, supple and very comfortable with almost no break in time required. The fit is excellent and true to size. The Playa Patrern is something near and dear to every Burner and faithfully reproduced here from actual photos of the Black Rock Playa. Whole-heartedly endorse, no hesitations! 5☆!
