These boots are of a much better quality than I was expecting. They run a little large, but that is good because I can add a good insert to them and still have plenty of room. I have only had them for a couple days, but so far they are holding up well. The color is gorgeous! Even if for some reason the Ravenclaw info were to rub off, which I don't see happening, but, if it did, they are great blue boots that I love.
