Boots are very comfortable. They look great with skinny jeans, leggings and tights. This year they seem to run smaller than last year. I purchased a pair last year and this time I had to go up one size. Warm and waterproof.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
I think they are attractive but there is not much padding in the forefoot and you couldn't put anything in it because the toe box is too shallow. Even if it were padded the toe box would be too shallow.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
