I have these booties, and love their refined casual appeal, pointy toe, non-cowboy look. They are ever so slightly grey, which looks a dash softer than black. Soft leather makes them super comfy, but you have to add a cushioning insole because the footbed isn’t spongy. They are lightweight, have a tailored fit around the ankle, and the elastic inserts make walking a joy. No rubbing and very well made.
