Gorgeous, but cheep
on December 9, 2011
So this boot looks absolutely amazing. I got the chocolate brown one, and it's a deep rich color. The buckles are cute, and overall it looks really good. I also normally wear a size 11, but they didn't have that so I got the 10 and it fits perfectly. There's some room for adjustment because the heel doesn't have a defined end, it just sort of becomes the tall part of the boot. The faux-suede feels like a dream, it's incredibly soft and comfy and I didn't want to take the boots off.
Now for the parts you should be wary of:
This is a twenty-dollar boot, and therefor it is twenty-dollar boot quality. It's great for the money, but it is not better than that. It seems like a super-cheep boot, and that's what it feels like (although it looks very expensive).
The fabric is super thin, my jeans are thicker than it. It's fine if you're not looking for a warm boot, but would be awful walking home in the snow.
The heels are high, narrow, and hollow, so it's kind of unsturdy. This isn't a huge issue, it's just going to take some practice walking in, and these are not the kind of boots that you can run or walk very quickly in easily. Also, when worn for hours on end the lack of padding in the soles starts to hurt, but they're super comfy when you're not putting weight on them. Like most heels there's a hotness-to-pain ratio that should be kept in mind (But they're so cute that I can put up with hurt feet with no problem).
The buckle arrived broken on one of them, or not quite broken but more that it's for decoration and wouldn't stay buckled, so that part was flapping around. I can fix this by sewing or super-gluing it, but be prepared to to a little tinkering with these boots.
Overall, I really like them, but these boots are more focused on looks than on durability. They're wonderful fashion boots, it you just want to look good and don't have to run somewhere in the rain, and you can't beat that price.
EDIT: A little bit of superglue on the buckles and they are perfect, I would definitely recommend them, they're beautiful. Just have a tube of crazy glue handy.
