I think your satisfaction with the Boone will depend on why you are buying them and how you envision them in your wardrobe. I ordered a pair because I enjoyed my suede MacNeils. For me, their softness made them look more causal than I wanted. My biggest issue was the tight fit in the vamp. The shoes also closed poorly for my foot shape and left a very wide ga that exceeded my personal tolerance.
The suede MacNeil, in contrast, had more leather and the closure was more than sufficient.
Closure of similar calf shoes.
Given these issues I sent them back and I will keep my eyes open for something else.
