    Yikes. Are those ever . . . somethin'. I had to go back to re-read the description to be sure they weren't really women's boots, with all the buckles, chains and general "glam rocker" get-up. (hey, maybe they were custom made for Rod Stewart and are worth a mint.)
    As for whether they're Weston's, I'd expect that they are, if only because (i) Weston makes some flamboyant shoes and boots upon special order (e.g., blue lizard skin), and (ii) who's ever heard of "fake" Weston's? In any case, I'd ask the seller to please take a picture of the label/marking to see what it looks like. Or, call Weston.

    This person obviously has no idea of what he is selling. Man-made materials?

    I would expect fake John lobb albeit in a most extreme instance. But probably not J.M. Weston.

    Someone who uses the adjective "Fancy" to describe any clothing item has no credibility in my book. Regardless, those are some kick-ass boots, though the heel is a bit severe.

    I'd pick them up it were my size for no more than $30.
