I don't love it like I thought I would
on September 12, 2013
Some of the reviews were confusing as to whether or not the boot would be a slim fit or not. I have small ankles, small calves, and a normal size 7 in shoes. My other boots (just ankle tall work boots) are a 7 (USA) and they fit fine. I ordered these in a 7 after reading many of the comments. I would say that I agree with the buyers who said it fit SLIM or SMALL and that if you are a wider size in your ankle,calve, or foot that you may want to go a half size up from your regular size. If you have wide ankles or very muscular calves-this may not be the boot for you. I know that leather will stretch, so my husband said to just break them in and they will form to my foot better. I would not say you could wear thick woolly socks with these.
Pros: Nice dark brown color. Real leather. Decent price. Thick rubber soles that have good traction. Comfortable arch support. very cute in person. Sleek and simple design. The heel isn't as tall as you would think from the pictures. It hits just below my knee bone, I am 5'4".
Cons: Slim fit(for some people) Narrow at the toe(for me, my foot is wide from heel to toe) Has more of a slim Western style to it than I thought in the pictures.
WARNING: It may just be me, but my box came in the mail absolutely demolished. I was worried that the boots were ruined it was so bad. The box had merely been slipped into a shipping bag and then my postal service put a "rain protector" bag over that. It was a severely poor packaging job. My boots have some water spots and wear marks on them, but I suspect that was from the seller. All in all, very bad mailing job.
