These are currently my favorite non doc martin shoes- I am 5'9" but love the extra boost the heel on these gives me. They are so versatile; they look great with casual/dress as expected, but they really dress up a pair of jeans and just about everything! When I ordered mine I read all the reviews and took their advice to order a 1/2 to 1 size up from my usual- since I usually take a 9 or 9.5 I ordered these in a 10 and they fit perfect. Especially if you're like me and wear flats most of the time; the narrow toe combined with the mid-heel can make it feel like your toes are cramped in- but with the extra room half a size larger provides, I never had this problem. In fact, over the winter I found they fit fine even with a pair of socks (med. thick, not "trouser socks". When these give out, not that they show any signs of it, I am definitely ordering more- service was excellent, arrived 2days after ordering.
