Love these boots! I could walk for miles in them, they're super comfortable. The 2" heels do get worn down over time, but you can get that fixed for like $15 at your local shoe repair shop. The design is simple but not plain--you could wear these with almost anything :). Mine finally died after two years of continual usage, but that was only because my jeans would get bunched up in the zippers, which caused the zipper to fray--if you treat them with care I'm sure they will last a lot longer.
