I'm very glad I took the time to do my research on dress boots online. Oftentimes a person might be concerned with purchases online because the color in the pic might be a little distorted, or the product might be situated in a certain angle in the pic to distort its actual look. These shoes are exactly as they look in the pictures. I usually buy Stacy's or Marco's, so I was skeptical of Zotas, but they are just as nice. I appreciated that they also came with shoe horns. I've notice some commenters have a problem with the gasoline like smell from the shoes. This can be remedied by wrapping them in newspaper. But don't let that stop you from making a good bargain purchase.
