Got mine in black today and don't have any of the issues that Kaizen21 has.
Are these steel toe?
I received them this afternoon. Get charged with $42 import fees in Quebec. So not the best deal ever.
Great looking boots. The laces are not black like in te picture, but brown and wheat. Look nice butI also like the contrast with black laces. The laces are very stiff and difficult to lace but I think they will break in.
They are true to size. The boots are very confortable, there is a thick rubber inside sole. I think they will break in very fast.

Here is the photo with aftermarket black laces. I removed them after the picture because it stains the tongue.
They look nice with a 511 chino.

The are also great with raw denim.

I hope it helps. Sorry for bad quality photos.

EDIT :
One little thing get my attention: on the left boot, the sewing is weird, it's like the leather is returned on itself. The right boot is "normal".





"hand crafted" shouldn't be an excuse for bad quality control. I'm not really happy, detail like this shouldn't be on a $260 MSRP boots.

Thanks for the review and photos! I think the marketing images look great, but with the lack of reviews/information I could find about this brand, I couldn't be swayed to take the plunge.

Thoughts:
- It's awful that you received laces different from what was represented in the images. MD either needs to update the image or make that clear in the description.
- That stitching problem you highlighted looks awful. I've not seen anything like that even on my Dr Martens boots that cost half the price of this one. Has MD offered an appropriate response/explanation?

Yes there isn't a lot of reviews on this brand. I email Gorilla USA they answer that this kind of stiching is "totaly comon because the boot is handmaid". I think they don't give a shit about detail, but this doesn't mean the boots are bad quality. Even on their website on some models you can see bad stiching, maybe they like the style of a "raw boots" but I think they loose a lot of customers because of that.

Yes Massdrop offered me a full refund if I send back the boots (I paied 42 CAD import fees so I choose to keep them) or a 25$ refund. I took the 25$.
This is a great looking boot. If these come back around, any chance the saddle colorway will be available?
Do they make these small? I know it's Men's Apparel, but I'd love a pair of these. Size 3 in Mens.
Anyone know if these run big or small? Would hate to get stuck with a pair that doesn't fit.

True size
Too bad there aren't more photos...
I wonder how they would look from above, behind and how they'd pair with different pants and jeans
Do they run wide or narrow? Anyone know?

i would say wide
I would like to know whether it is a full grain leather upper.
interested in these but reviews online say the leather laces come too short and it’s hard to lace them up properly, expect to be replacing the laces if you get these.

I have "hi boots" and "chuka" , had no problem with laces, nether they are to short, nether they are prone to breaking . Only thing that I see as a problem is when the boots are new and you have thick socks on your first day. Leather boots will stretch little and the leather laces will stretch little and then it will be perfect length.
