Highly versatile and strong boots...
These boots are truly fantastic. I don't use spurs, but they do have a ledge in the back for them to rest on. The rubber heels are soft enough that they don't click like high heels, and the leather is strong, yet supple. These are great for walking in, but your feet will get tired after a few hours. My heels will get pretty hot from rubbing back and forth a bit, and my arches + the balls of my feet get sore. That may just be the way my feet are, though. You probably won't be walking in these for several hours in a stretch anyhow.
The insole has gel in it that provides great cushion, and combined with the rubber soles these boots have good shock absorption. This is pretty basic, but I'd recommend that you use boot socks / crew socks, because the inside seam may rub your leg a bit. Wear socks, and there is no issue at all.
These boots are versatile; wear them a bit and they're nice and light brown. Bick 4 and waterproof them with LP, and they turn real nice and dark. It's a very dark oil type of color, and is pretty close to black. Use an old toothbrush or something to clean out the wide stitching by the toe and it'll clean up nicely and turn white in good contrast. I'd strongly recommend you do this as soon as you get them. Don't worry, they'll lighten up again with wear. LP is made from beeswax and all that. It waterproofs and moisturizes the leather. Personally, I think you'll get more wear out of your boots if you Bick 4 and LP every now and again. If you don't LP it right away, dirt will be more likely to be able to get stuck in the thread and you won't be able to clean it up and get it white when you want to. The wax will provide a resistant layer.
I highly recommend these boots. They're strong, sturdy, good looking, low maintenance, and long lasting. I bought these a year ago, and they're starting to wear down, but that's fine with me. I bought these for work, and I'm able to use it for looks also. They run true to size, and I think you'll love them!
