Well worth the price
on July 13, 2011
I have been eying these boots for a long time, but have been put off by the "you have to have tiny calves" type reviews. Finally I decided to buy them all the same, and I'm glad I did. I will admit that the calves are a little tight, and if you have larger calves then you might as well forget it. The shoe is true to size though (I always wear a 9 and the 9 in this boot fit perfectly)and while they were initially tight and difficult to zip up on my normal sized calves (about 15" around), the boots got used to my legs after just three wears and now the boots zip up easily and they fit comfortably on my calves.
The boot material is far thicker than I thought it would be, the PU upper closely resembles a shiny leather, and they feel very sturdy around my ankles. Overall the boots look far more expensive than they are. One of my more fashion conscious friends thought I had spent four times the boots' price on my pair because they thought the boots looked like actual leather at first glance. If you are used to wearing 4-4.5" heels then you will find these both comfortable and easy to walk in once you break the ankles in. They could use a little more padding under the balls of your feet, but they by no means kill your feet without additional inserts. I wear them at the office without a problem. Learning to drive with these boots on was a little touchy at first, but after one extended wear the ankles broke in enough that it hasn't been much of an issue since. All in all I am very very pleased with my purchase and will not hesitate to buy another pair when my current pair wears out.
