These boots look amazing and are my favorite that I own. They are comfortable to walk in. I did see very minor marks on the boots, one that looked like a pencil dot, and one that looked like a very small splash of black, but they are not noticeable. Around the top of the calf it starts to get very tight if you have thick calves, but they can be adjusted. I am a size 8.5 and got a 9, and they do seem slightly big in the toe area, but not too big. Overall, they have one of the best designs I've seen, and are going to be a boot I wear a lot.
