Soft and pretty but too large
on October 26, 2011
I was so excited to receive these boots, even after reading some of the negative reviews. The first thing my husband said when the box arrived was, "If these are boots, they are REALLY light!" He was right. They are VERY light and soft and pretty. I love that about them. I know that true cowboys boots are stiffer but for the price, these boots are great. I had been looking at boots that were $250-$300 and I have no doubt that those boots would be sturdier but, as with anything, you get what you pay for and, in this case, I think these boots are a GREAT deal. Now, the downside - based on the size chart, I ordered a size 7, which I typically am but can sometimes get away with a 6.5. The boots are too big and slip in the heel. I hesitate to return them, based on some other reviews, for fear that they will then be too small. I will buy heel inserts today to see if that helps, if they do not make the boot tight enough, I will return them for a 6.5 to see if they fit better. I have an event that I want to wear these boots to in a couple of weeks so I want to be sure I have a great fitting boot. If I can get the boot to fit well, either with heel inserts or a smaller size, I have no doubt that these boots will be comfortable and well worth the price.
EDIT* - the boots are great for the price but they are too large. Have reorderd a 1/2 smaller hoping that they fit better. PS - the one thing I'm not crazy about is that I couldn't exchange the boot for a smaller size but had to purchase the smaller size and return the larger ones for a refund, which will take considerably longer to receive.
