Steve Madden 'Bruklyn' Chukka Boot
not what it looks like
This is a great short boot, but for any buying this over the internet - DON'T !! on the internet this boot looks like very shiny leather and has a nice sallow brown color - even a little lighter brown in places. In contrast to the way it is picture (not sure how they got this effect - must be some very strong lighting) - this boot shine and color is actually very plain.
Not the cool dress boot I was looking for, or would pay that much for - definitely does not represent the esteemed name of "Bruklyn" which the picture, in my mind, DOES represent.
Bought these shoes on a whim when I was with my friend to buy some dress shoes. Wanted a pair of brown boots and liked how they looked/fit. Happy with the decision. Recommend for anyone.
Nice addition to the closet...
This boot is a nice addition to a casual wardrobe, that can even be used to dress up a bit. The boot fits nicely with most pant openings. The sole is a hard synthetic material so it doesn't have as much give as a leather or rubber sole, but is still comfortable. The boot may be a bit snug in the toe box if you try to put in an insert. Overall a nice short boot and I am very happy with the purchase.
