I ordered these during a free shipping promotion, I normally wear a size 8.5 or 9, and a European 39, but after a few experiences with online shoe-shopping, opted for the 39.5 in these boots. They're too big and will go back. The decision now is whether to exchange for a smaller size or keep looking for a similar style.
This is a unique design. The boots are comfortable and stylish. The leather is soft and has a shine to it; possibly it's a glaze of some kind, but in any case I'm not sure it's the best quality. The design is Italian, but manufacture is in China.
The toe portion of the shoe is long and narrow, which makes feet look bigger. That will probably be the deciding point for me, since my feet don't need magnification!
I'm sure that if I'd ordered the right size, I'd keep and wear them. However, exchanging is a hassle and $218 is a high price for ambivalance. Still thinking.

These booties are great. I got these at the sale price ($99.95), but would have paid full price for them. I am usually an 8 or an 8.5 and am either a 38.5 or a 39 for Euro sizing. I ordered a 38.5 in these boots and they fit pretty nicely. I find them a tiny bit big/wide, but not so much that I would have to exchange for a 38. I do have narrow feet, so that probably explains it. Unlike the other reviewer, these boots do not make my feet look bigger. If anything, they complement my narrow feet. Also, I feel that the quality of the boot is fine. Overall, these are a great pair of stylish, unique, and comfortable boots. Definitely get them!

The main reason I'm posting is to give you a size reference.
I'm usually a 9.5 I got the 39.5 and they fit perfect.
The shoes run narrow, so if you have wide feet, sorry.
My only complaint is the heel is very hard, so it's quite loud when walking on hard surfaces. Pretty standard for women's shoes though.
