These boots are absolutely incredible. They are a beautiful dark brown with the super comfortable and durable commando soles. They've been tried on once but never worn off of carpeting. I've just decided that they are a little too similar to other shoes I've got, and now I've missed the return window. They retail for $565, so get these for a great deal at $465. Please know your size in the Alden Barrie last, because no returns will be accepted. They will come brand new in the original box with shoe bags. No shoe trees included. Please do let me know if you have questions.
