The shoes are the culmination (at least for now) of my desire for riding boots. Specifically black ones with brown tops that fit a wide calf. I wouldn't say they were as comfortable as the Bandolino name would suggest but I traipsed around NJ in them for days after they arrived and they seem to be holding up pretty well. For under $100 (I used a coupon) they'll work for me until I find an even more perfect replacement.
