    How long will it last? I'd guess about as long as a decently made shoe. But really, it's a fashion boot, I'd expect it to look out of fashion before it actually wears out.

    #1 and #3 are the same.
    Actually, #1 is black and #3 is brown.

    I like #3. I'm not sure about that stitching on a black slip-on.

    All-in-all, they are all great.

    I'd go with 1, then 3, then 2.

    As far as durability, I've had a similar pair of Varvatos boots for two seasons and probably worn them 20 times or so and they look the same as when I purchased them. If you're talking about durability in foul weather when worn every day, they'll likely last fairly well, they're sort of distressed so they'll just get a bit more distressed, its not like they're patent leather or anything. I think durability will be fairly similar with all of those boots.

    I'll take #2. They're distressed enough that you don't have to worry about them when going to grimy bars. Besides, I think distressed boots look better with old worn jeans (whether you buy them distressed or wear them until they're distressed is another debate [​IMG]). There are some nice Varvatos boots on eBay if you don't want to pay full retail. Like these: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=300012023217 Or these: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=300012303489 Or these: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=300012631944 They might not be your size, but you get the idea.

    Funny, I just ordered the #2 today.

    From what I know of Varvatos shoes, they're made extremely well for a "fashion label."

    Now I need to find a decent pair in black.

    EDIT: Sorry to be harsh. Late night at work.
