This is a very nice looking pair of boots which I wore once, with a trouser suit, for work. The boots have a working zip on the inside of the leg, and a gold-colored fake zip on the outside of the ankle. The plastic that the boots are made from is very rigid, and even more so where the fake zip is attached. After just one day at work, and despite wearing them with socks, the boots had cut into my ankle on each side where the fake zip is located. The cut was very deep, and I have not been able to wear them since; which is a shame, as they look the part.
