Okay, here are some pictures of my brown horsehide semi-dress boots. The first few pictures are after I only wore them inside the house to make sure they fit properly so I could try to send them back if they didn't. The good news is that they were perfect on me, except for needing to be broken-in and molded specifically to the form of my individual feet. You can see the boots are barely creased. The next set of pictures will be after a long day of wearing around on pavement, in the car, in the office, etc., but even then you will see they are just beginning to break in a little.
I tried to take this first set of pictures from a variety of angles and in various lighting conditions so the full range of color and profiles could be seen. I still had problems showing the depth and pattern of the beautiful horsehide. You have to see it live to appreciate how good it looks and how sturdy it feels. I'll post the second set of pictures momentarily.
