Lovely Boot, Bad Fit
on February 24, 2011
Let's start with the good about this boot: It's beautiful. Everything about it from the leather to the buttons to the shape of the toe, is absolutely GORGEOUS. I wanted desperately to love this boot!
However, this is where the bad comes in and why I'm only giving this shoe 2 stars. The shoe is HUGE. I am a 7 1/2 normally and ordered this the first time in that size. The shaft was a little tight, but nothing I was terribly worried about at that point, so I returned it and re-purchased this boot in a 7. I was so excited for it to come in, certain it would be perfect now. I was so wrong. The difference in circumference between the 7 1/2 and the 7 was night and day. I could BARELY zip the 7 up when I had very little problem doing so on the larger size. Not only that, but the 7 was STILL HUGE in the foot area!
If you're looking at this boot order it a whole size down (if you wear an 8 order a 7) and also measure your calf first. My calf is 14" around and this was really REALLY difficult to zip. It is NOT, as the description claims, 14 1/2" circumference. If you have a calf my size or bigger this boot WILL NOT FIT.
Otherwise, by all means, please purchase this boot as it really is stunning and could be a classy addition to any outfit.
