Bought these for this year's Halloween costume. Thanks to other reviews I learned they run a little small, so I ordered an 11 to fit my size-9 foot and a pair of thickish socks. They fit fine.

However, like someone else I had a problem with the laces being too short. (My calves are fairly muscular from all the hill climbing I do here in bumpy Nashville.) The shoe fit, width-wise, but I needed about 16" more lace. Shocking, I know - the laces that come with these a a full 10 feet long!

Trouble is, laces are expensive!! I looked at one of those custom-order websites and they wanted $18 for a longer lace. I see someone else tried clothesline cord - I ordered a bunch of grosgrain ribbon in a cute zebra print pattern and am going to try that. You can use heat-shrink tubing to fix the end of a ribbon like a shoelace: Anytime SHRINK TUBING SLEEVES ASSORTED

Anyway, I'd buy these again. They do have a zipper up the side, which I somehow overlooked when I ordered them and was pleased to see. Had been thinking I might trim the tops a bit and I can't do that because zipper, but it looks like I can roll them down fairly easily.

I usually wear a size 8 shoe but the 9 fits very well. These shoes are so comfy and light weight I hardly know I'm wearing shoes. Very happy with purchase

They came with blue laces as well as white, which was awesome. The fabric is flexible enough to allow for a somewhat custom fit over the length of the calves. Flexible enough for my body, anyway. The tongue is just barely wide enough for my calves.

How I Chose My Size:

I tried on all my existing closed-toed shoes, which consisted of several sizes ranging from American 9.5 to 11, and one European size 41 shoe. I noted that the size 11 shoes were all slightly large, and went with the 10 instead of the 9.5 because product reviews said they run small (as of this writing, there is no 10.5 option). The shoes are a bit snug right now, but this is the same canvas material on my other shoes which stretched out over time, so I think they will be perfect for my feet after a few wearings.

Negative Notes of Interest (why not 5 stars?):

-Like someone else, I received laces that are too short. I solved this by lacing them up every other hole. It looks just fine as far as I'm concerned (see attached photo), and functions well.
-The fabric and stitching are cheap. They look okay from a distance, but I foresee repairs in my future.
-The soles are covered in some kind of fuzz, as shown on the page. This fuzz makes them very slippery, so until I rough them up, they won't be safe for dancing and walking will require care.
-Even though these are a pretty royal blue, the zipper on the instep is black. If they manufacture black zippers on all their colors, it could be even more weird on other patterns.
-The shoes arrived folded and squished into a tiny box. That's great for shipping, but they have some weird creases in them that will take a while to wear out of the fabric.
-These shoes have clearly been worn before. Not much, but enough that I can tell. I don't particularly care enough about it to return them, but it's still annoying.

The shoes fit my feet perfectly. The only issue I had was that I have pronounced calf muscles, and the upper part of the boot didn't wrap around them really well.

!!!!PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO READ THIS IF YOU ARE SERIOUS ABOUT PURCHASING THESE SHOES!!!!
I actually like these shoes but I do have a few things I would like to discuss about them
1st I would like to say I purchased the white shoes and was very disappointed when the shoes both came with pretty large yellow stains. Currently I'm trying to get them out but it's an extra step I shouldn't have to take so I deffinatly don't recomend this particular color. If your wanting to use them as Halloween accessories it would be okay but I was wanting to use them as actual shoes the I could walk around In.
2nd I have fairly large calfs so the tongue Barely fits to fully close off the shoe. The widest part of my calf is about 15 inches if yours is any larger I don't recomend these shoes at all. But once on they do look awesome
3rd I read the reviews and purchased the shoes a size larger than I normally would and that allowed the shoe to fit properly. So deffinatly GET A SIZE BIGGER. If I hadn't they would not have for at all.
4th the laces barely made it to the top of the shoe. I realize it has a lot to do with having large calfs so I don't find that to be a big deal at all worst case scenario I have to purchase longer set of shoe laces
5th I was worried when I purchaced these shoes that they would not fit. I have wide feet and when I received them I was pleasantly surprised to find they fit purfactl
Over all I recomend these shoes just not in white! if it weren't for the stains I would have given a 5 star review.

These shoes are fantastic, I get a ton of complements on them, people are always asking where I got them and you can't beat the price. One small issue I have with them is that this pair was a bit too big on me but I bought a size up from my usual fit so that's to be expected, and as long as I wear thick stocks they're perfectly wearable. If I don't wear thick socks they have a tendency to bunch up around the ankle but again this wouldn't have been an issue if I'd gotten the the right size and it's easily avoidable with thick socks or shoe insoles and a tightening of the laces. A lot of other reviewers suggested buying a size up but I've purchased two of these boots, one in my usual 7 1/2 and one in an 8 and I can honestly say the size 7 1/2 fits perfectly, although the 8 is still wearable.

They are a pain to lace up (I think it took me an hour to get both done) but after you lace them once you're good to go since they zip on the side. One thing that makes me a tad nervous are the zippers on the side, I wish the tongue of the zippers were just a bit sturdier but I've been careful when zipping and they've yet to break. The boots do catch lint like nobody's business so invest in a lint brush, especially if you have a cat, but that's just a minor thing. Some people seem to have issues with the laces being too short but I've not had that problem. They're quite comfortable, they're flats so if you have to do a lot of walking I'd suggest insoles to support the arches of your feet but that's just how flats are and doesn't reflect on the shoes, that said I've been able to walk two miles in these comfortably.

There are some loose strings around the zipper area but the shoes have held up wonderfully for about three and half months now, even after extensive wearing so I'm not convinced those are really a deal breaking defect, not at this price. Bottom line I'd recommend these shoes, they're awesome looking, they fit as measured, and they're great quality for the price.

The skate shoes are way small. Since I already knew this after reading the reviews I ordered a size up. I would have ordered 2 sizes up but they didn't have a size 12. They still fit anyway, toe is right up to the end but it doesn't push on the toe so everything is just fine. I love these shoes, they are so very comfortable and will work well in the winter when I'm around the house and outside, as long as it's not snowing. These are not show shoes. I do use knee high socks, the shoes are lined. I did get an arch support because these shoes do not have an arch in them. With the supports these shoes are wonderful for long days on your feet.

I bought them for my niece. She loves them. I like them because they are soft sided. Not rough like other brands. These also come in cute patterns that I did not see elsewhere.

I adore these shoes. They were a great price, they shipped fast and the bottom half of them fits fine. Unfortunately, I'm gonna have to return them because my calves are about five inches too big to fit. I knew my calves were larger than 12" when I purchased them, but I was hoping I could just loosen the laces. Uh, no. There just isn't enough fabric to go all the way around and I was left with gaps between the tongue and sides. Sad to see them go back.
