I purchased these three or four years ago to be my workhorse black boots, and they’ve gotten lots of wear … but not recently. I’m not terribly fond of that heel at this point, and wish it was a bit narrower. I tend to fall back on my Aldos and Diesels instead, but since these are Danskos they’re super comfy … so they do get worn when I have tons of walking to do.
If you look closely in the first photo, you’ll see some band-aids and moleskin on the inside of the boot. That’s because there were some petrified threads in there that both ruined my tights and mauled my calves until I covered them up. Annoying.
