I passed up on these the first time around but I can feel them sucking me back in due to my inability to find a black chelsea boot. Word on the street is the studs start coming loose and/or just fall off after the first wearing but I still love the shape without the studs. Plus missing some may add to their rough and tumble aesthetic. And it would make them look more lived in and loved.
Contrary to popular belief, while I, like every other red
headed blooded woman love a new pair of shoes, there is something about a lived in pair of boots that really satisfies and if they're of good quality they only get better with age anyway.
