I bought these Jeffrey Campbell "Mercer" boots back in 2013 because of their look. Liked the polished leather and the chunky heel - but was close to sending them back to the store, as they were the only pair I own that smelled "chemical" (I have no other words to describe it) when they arrived, mainly from the plastic/rubber sole.

I put them on my balcony during summer for a couple of weeks till the smell faded away. Did your boots also came with that strange smell?

 

From a quality perspective (just my personal opinion), Jeffrey Campbell shoes are overpriced. Produced in China, cheapest leather (at least my cobbler said so when he had to replace the zipper that stopped working after just using it three times (I was basically stuck in my boots and couldn't get out, as the zipper wouldn't move).

 

I like some of his creations (e.g. Hbic), but that was my first and last pair. Yes, even I get tempted to buy another pair every now and then, but then I look at these again and refrain from ordering...

Well I'm always happy with the quality Freestyle75

I guess that your boots were just bad luck :-?

I own a studded shoe and they are still on the shoe , and they smelled like leather a few days :cheeky:

But thanks for the post , your boots look amazing !

I do agree that the quality doesn't really match the price you pay for them, but then again mine are used from eBay and were at total bargain.

I bought my lita's when they were on sale so the price/quality was pretty okay :cool:

I hope I can be forgiven as mine are only knock offs. But I really do love the style of the Lita, and I got mine from a friend for $10 haha.

I'm almost daily scoping out the local second hand goods site for a pair of lita's but even second hand they aren't cheap. For now i'll have to make due with a pair of look-a-likes. Posted a pic in the who has bought some new shoes topic a while back:

I'm a Jeffrey Campbell fan too and have had several different pairs. Overall, I've been pleased with the look and feel of them. I'd like to get a pair of Mulder boots next.

The spikes take some getting used to (can easier scratch/cut yourself) but so far I really like them!

Fellow Lita lovers, I have a question. I'm being offered a pair of "Lita's" but I'm having doubts about the authenticity. The logo on the inside doesn't match my other pair of Lita's which I'm 100% sure are genuine. These don't come with a box either so thats why I wonder. I attached some pictures of them. Are they knock-off or real?

 

There are a few things more I notice which makes me doubt but before I accuse someone of trying to sell me something for too much money I like to be sure. :fine:

Thank you for your reply! I'm under that impression too, but wanted some verification. The are different from my 100% genuine pair as well. I'm going to decline the offer.

I actually think they are the Lita Espana boots that were made in spain and limited in numbers. Does it say "made in spain" on the sole? Also that jeffrey campbell logo was used in other styles too as i have the "Areas" boot that has the same logo.

Did some searching and I think you are right! I found some pictures with the same logo. Judged to soon. But also found out they run small compared to the regular Lita so still don't want to take the gamble due to the size. Did sent the seller an e-mail to let her know. :)
