FRYE Womens Veronica Slouch Boot
I bought this boot because I've been obsessed with Frye for awhile and thought it would be a nice, versatile style. I immediately liked the boot: the leather shaft is thick and of high quality, the boot itself is comfortable (true to size to my standard size 10) and there was very little "breaking in" period. Also I will note that the boot shafts were roomy but not too wide, which was nice because I have slim calves.
The thing that really impressed me was that I took these boots to Montreal - not knowing that the city had just received an almost-record snowfall - and they were the only shoes I had other than sneakers and flip flops for the next three days. I had to walk two dogs three times each day in everything from fresh snow to brown, melted slush. These boots PERFORMED. I could not believe that the boots stayed completely waterproof!
So yeah: stylish, comfortable, waterproof. Hopefully will last forever, too!
