Love these boots!!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: DV by Dolce Vita Women's Prince Boot (Apparel)
I love these boots!! I've wanted a boot like this for *years*... now fashion has finally produced! I was concerned when I ordered them that there would be a chance they wouldn't fit, but luckily I found reviews elsewhere that suggested their width would be accommodating. I don't have a *wide* foot, but I'm nowhere near a narrow and thus can only order certain brands online as I know they'll fit (I'm always a perfect 7.5 in Marciano, Nine West and Naughty Monkey, most others are a bit of a crap shoot). When I pulled them out of the box I was concerned as they look like they'd be narrow, but the leather is so soft that they fit fabulously within an hour (I wore them around the house the whole first day!).
I really love that the sole is rubber so they have great grip and are comfortable for walking. It would be nice if they were a bit more like my old-model Havana Joes I wear around (they look a lot like this, but just an inch or so heel) as they'd be much more hardy, but they don't seem delicate. I likely won't wear them in deep snow days, but casual weather situations will likely not hurt them. They are fashion boots though, so I can't expect my *dream* boot necessarily. :P (though if Asolo ever decides to make a 3.5" hiker I'd be ecstatic!)
One note though-- if you can't handle a weighty boot, these are not for you. When I'm not wearing my various stilettos, my usual shoes are my Havana Joe boots or my Asolo's, both of which are quite utilitarian and hefty. So these are nothing to me. But to get that kind of solid heel, you will get a bit of weight.
I did add some insoles to these as I do a lot of walking and the built in soles are so-so. They're not bad, but they're really comfy now with the cushion insoles! I love these boots!!!!!!!
