||- good size collection growing since 2005 (about 130 videos, over 200 photo sets)
- nice selection of British regulars, a few new faces
- lots of girls in leather boots!
- regular updates, every 3 days; every 4th or 5th update is video
- photo sets reasonable softcore content
- a few sets/videos slightly stronger
- generally exclusive content
- host responds to emails
||- poor site usability; no search, just a list of galleries
- endlessly opens up new windows for each link
- one size pics (generally 1000 x 670, 250 dpi)
- no zips!
- video production is poor, content a bit repetitive
- one video format, wmv, typically 128 kbps, 720 x 576
- videos typically 3 minutes only and have large watermarks
- predominantly softcore, a few mild bondage and punishment sets
- there is some non-exclusive content, but I believe this is legacy - designed to pad out the site in earlier days - and not being updated
- no model bios, interaction or shoot descriptions
||GILB services a niche and makes few bones about it.
Host, Raif, is a genuine enthusiast like most of those attracted to the content. Yet, the site has the tell-tale signs of an amateur.
It's very boot content focussed, but let down in other areas.
From a technical point of view, the media content is poor with no format options. Downloading was at a reasonable speed and there was no daily limit.
The site isn't the prettiest on the eye and not designed for easy use. Searching is non-existent; just a random list of galleries. There are also a few broken links. (Hi Raif, even with my limited knowledge of HTML and CSS I could design a better site.)
That said, the content - if the boot niche is what you are after - is generally good. Scene settings are a bit repetitive, but there has been some thought to content and outfits.
Don't expect anything much stronger than softcore from mainly British models. There's a few insertions, but it's mostly posing or stripping. Some of the bought in content features bondage and humiliation. (I hoped Raif got this properly licensed.)
There are a few familiar faces - Lucy Zara and Frankie - plus a couple of bored looking European girls. Otherwise, the models put on a good show, giving prominence to the boot.
For the content, it's a reasonable $20 a month. Even without zips you could download the whole site in a few weeks.
Raif did respond quickly to an email about a broken link.
I'd want to score GILB higher if only because it's one of the few sites to guarantee good boot content. Other options include Bootiful, which has little or no video content, and features some rather tame stuff even in comparison to GILB. Only Tease does feature quite a lot of boots. It would be interesting if the production team produce an Only Boots site.
Overall though, GILB is let down by amateurish production values, the lack of format options and a clunky website.
But...fills a niche.
