Drifter Boots

Item #Z10034
Rated 4 out of 5 by from No one will show up wearing the same boots! I think I may be keeping these Drifter Boots. They are quite artisanal, unique, distressed and boheme. They look as if I plucked them right from the hands of a villager in the mountains. What they are not is tailored, urban or conservative. These boots appeal to my hip and casual side. (As opposed to my very real polished and tailored side!) I was prepared and knew what to expect as I opened the box after I read all the reviews here. When I opened the box, I was greeted by a bow on top made of twisted wrapping tissue. I could tell there was effort in packaging the boots, but because of the slouchy nature of these boots, they still moved around in the box, which did rumple up the fringes. They will need a couple of days to smooth out once you remove them from the box. Suggestion Peruvian Connection: if the boots were lightly stuffed with tissue paper, they may package more appealingly and travel much better. The color was what I expected as shown on the website, really. A mid-tone, taupe-mink brown color. These boots are not a dark or rich, warm brown if that is what you are looking for. As I mentioned in my first line, I may be keeping these. The "may" part is due to the price tag and how much I like them enough now that I have had a chance to try them on. I have nothing like them and they are soft and broken-in.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Original but too expensive I loved the originality of these boots, but the same artisanal quality that made them so unique also resulted in visibly different leathers on the part across the top of the foot. The fringe was curled from the packaging, although it may have straightened out, and the color was a light grey/taupe, with no vestige of brown. I have slim calves and the boots were comfortable with tights, but not over skinny jeans. So, for the price, back they went.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful product I was very, very disappointed in these boots, and I sent them back the day after I received them. 1. The boots are nowhere near the color online or in the catalog. The ones I received were a light purple/taupe, not brownish. 2. The boots arrived crumpled up in a ball and stuffed into a bag, then thrown into a shipping box. The crumpling resulted in what appear to be permanent wrinkles in the body of the boots. The fringes appear to be bent for good, because of the creases that resulted. Would laying the boots out in a box with tissue paper protecting them be too much to ask? 3. One boot had a long cut on the side - looks like a razor blade cut. 4. The sole of the boot is white rubber material, which would be fine. But the boots I received had permanent (does not come off) black coloring on the sides of the soles to make them look "pre-dirtied". Whose brilliant idea was that? Why would I want to look like I have been walking in who-knows-what and I don't clean my shoes? For this price, the boots should have arrived in the color pictured, properly packaged, and undamaged. Some re-thinking of the soles material is certainly required. I can only hope that my experience is an exception.
