Better than I expected!Just came in the mail. The ginger colour is more dark brown . Perfect for jeans or leggings. Crepe sole is shock absorbing. Very stiff leather - hard to get on the first time but will soften up with time. Usually a Roots 8.5 and these fit true to size. Don't think I can put on my Roots socks yet until the boots soften up. Love the look and so comfortable.
Cautionary Note: Afraid the boots wouldn't arrive! I ordered these boots with a cabin sweater - Roots cancelled my cabin sweater order without any explanation two days after I placed the order online and received confirmation. Received a form email at 11pm at night. Still have no reason why. Not cool or good PR Roots! My local Roots store had the sweater in stock so I picked it up there so why couldn't they have shipped me one?

Very comfortable!I bought these a month ago and wear them to work and for leisure. They are very comfortable due to the soft, crepe footbed, no work in was needed despite the stiffer leather. They look great with jeans, skirts, leggings and the burgundy gives my wardrobe a nice pop of colour. The leather is durable as one expects from Roots. I give them a quick polish and they shine up nicely. The quality of the boots is excellent and I will wear these for years to come. I ordered size 8.5 and they fit true to my usual Roots sizing.

Beauty boots BUT stitching is offJust received these and for the most part I love them. They're stylish and comfortable and they look/feel durable BUT I'm a) disappointed as they're made in China - I know roots has had to outsource but I thought the boots/leather products were always Canadian made, my other pair are and b) somehow the stitching and composition of each boot is different - they appear to have different widths and the soles don't actually match up, it almost looks like two different shoes. I'm not usually picky about these details but this is quite noticeable. It might be a factory defect so am going to see if the closest store will let me exchange them, otherwise the design and quality great and typical of the roots brand.
Highly recommend trying on and checking them out in person before buying - sizing seems a bit bigger than usual.
