thrilled with these boots,
I got the navy/black and thought that meant color block navy blue and black but its that they are such a dark navy as to look black, so the suede is dark nearly black navy and the thick lug sole is black, the inside shearling is black.
They are so chic and comfortable, they're not heavy (when you hear lug sole you think heavy but walking in them doesn't feel heavy), & they look really, really nice. I live in NYC and we walk everywhere, I walked 60 blocks on the 1st day and they were very comfortable the whole way through. (they also come with that nice suede sponge brush, great to wipe off NYC dirt before putting them away for the night).
Size Wise: I'm an 8 in stuart weitzman and in Aquatilia Peony but went w/ 8.5 in these based on other reviews that said the shearling fill requires a half size up, and they were right, the 8.5 in these fits perfectly with a thin winter sock.
And like all Aquatilia they come ready to wear, i.e., other shoes of same price point I have to bring to cobbler for rubber soles and if suede for treatment so dirt doesn't seep in, but aquatilia comes with rubber soles and treated to be dirt resistant, they even incl a suede sponge brush, so happy with Aquatiia.
So happy with Aquatilia, they're my new go to.
