The boots arrived today, they look fantastic and fit well. Quality features like a pegged arch aren't always found at this price point. The python material looks and feels sensational, and is cut and trimmed perfectly. My other C-town boots are 14 years old (lizard) and 13 years old (full-quilt ostrich, my previous favorite) and so I'm glad to see the same level of care today as with my other pairs. But I had heard python boots often run small, and I'm glad I went a 1/2 size up on these (I'm normally a size 11D).
