Hey,

I would like to have your opinions on these boots:



Do you think these boots are worth 120 Euro's // USD 152.44800?
I can probably get them with a 15% discount though, making them 102euro / USD 129.58080.

If you think they are worth it which color do you prefer? I personally prefer the brown leather ones, but the black ones are pretty cool as well.

Perhaps I can also use this post to say hi to everyone, I'm new here.

Welcome. "Are they worth it" posts are inherently subjective. Without seeing them in person or knowing who makes them, it's hard to assess quality of construction and leather, which are the two most "objective" factors. Assuming they're even decently constructed, I can't imagine you're going to get something for a whole lto less. Bottom line, if you like them enough that you'll get regular use out of them, they're probably worth it.

Well, I've checked out the quality and it's good. The thing is though, I've bought a pair of normal shoes from the same brand before whom lasted pretty long but the leather started to loose from the sole after a schoolprom. Perhaps because there was glass all over the place. They're still intact and wearable though. I'd reckon the quality would be about the same.
I was more curious about how you thought about the design / price comparison though.

You can likely buy boots of better quality and the same design for less money on ebay.

What's the maker of those boots?

Also, those are really casual. Not meant for a suit (unless it's the slim black kind so popular with the Hedi Slimane crowd)

I think they are sporting the name of the shop that's selling them, Invito. I have no clue who actually manufactures the shoes though I'm not planning on wearing those under a suit, under a pair of jeans more likely. Also, I can get 35% discount since a friend of mine who works at the shop there can buy them for me with a 35% employee discount. That would mean they would cost 78Euro / USD 99. Could anyone link me to relating pair of shoes on E-bay? Btw, I would like to wear them like this, or is that a fashion no-no? :/

This topic really just screams streetwear + denim.

Only in a flood, or if you wear them fly-fishing.
Just kidding. It's boots and jeans - wear them however the hell you want.

They look pretty cool, but I'm wondering about quality at that price. Damn good deal if they're well made.
