I just got these in the mail today & they are gorgeous! They are extremely comfortable, look amazing on, and the colors are beautiful. I would definitely recommend ordering a half a size smaller as they do run a bit big. I ordered down half a size, and the fit was perfect. Definitely worth every penny!

Beautiful, but not comfy on my ankles
This shoe is stunning! I think it is beautifully made. I am so sad that they are hard for me to walk in and somehow uncomfortable in my heel area. Maybe because I am usually in flip flops or low heels? Still deciding whether to keep or not. So beautiful!!

These boots are so comfortable I don't want to take them off! The color is slightly darker than the picture- they are more tan/beige. The leather is super soft and they are easy to walk in. I wish I bought the other color before they sold out!
Fell in love with these shoes when I saw them on the website, and just received my pair today. They run narrow, but not short; I'm a size 10 (Euro 40/41# and they fit fine! However, I have a very narrow foot #4A - two widths narrower than a standard "narrow" width in shoes#. These fit nicely on my foot with the buckles in the middle hole - in fact, they might be the first pair of strappy sandal/bootie style shoes that haven't gapped on my feet. But they are not too short. Slender-footed ladies of the world, rejoice! Those shoes are for you!
The only thing I don't quite like about the design is that the leather straps aren't anchored into the back of the shoe. On the buckle side, there is elastic #of course, to allow for some flex while you're wearing it#; this isn't a big deal. But on the opposite side, the leather straps don't just anchor into the shoe - this is what surprised me. Instead, they connect to a bit of heavy cotton tape that then anchors into the back of the shoe. This may prove more comfortable #a soft material at a joint#, but I'm not sure it'll prove durable in the long run. We'll see!

Glad I did!!
I am so glad that my birthday was last month and I was able to score the red Tulpen Flats in my local Anthro store and use my 15% b-day discount!!! By the time this sale (49.99) came around, red was no more to be found! The red is not red-red, but a washed out red with a pinkish hue to the color—it really is a beautiful color and shoe. I just received the brown today and I am just as impressed. Sort of a Vintage/Bohemian vibe going on.
I have a thin foot, size 6.5—7, but Klub Nico,in my opinion, sizes shoes differently(?) I ordered the 7 and the size on the shoe is 36. In Euro size that is typically a 5.5-6, so I was happy the red fit and this helped me determine to order the brown in the same size. Don't be taken aback by the Euro sizing...order your true shoe size.
This shoe may be a challenge for gals with a wider foot, but try on before you decide ;) !
There is some stretch on the straps, opposite side of the buckle, and I worry a bit about the stretching...
Definitely a shoe that makes a "point" to stand out. Yes, the tip of the shoe is very pointy, a great fashion statement if you need to make one—so get them before there gone, as I can't imagine at this price they'll be around much longer!

Love at first (and second) sight!
I fell in love with these flats the first time I laid eyes on them, but was not willing to pay the full price. When they went on sale and then were an additional 20% off, I knew it was time to make my move. I ordered the brown ones. I normally wear a size 8 to 8.5 M, but since other reviewers said that these run small and there was no half size, I went with the 9M. They are a perfect fit! They are not too roomy, but still spacious enough in the (pointy) toe area and I can wear them, both, barefoot and with socks or tights. They are neutral enough in color and style to pair with many outfits while still adding a touch of whimsy. Love 'em!
I was in love with this shoe right out of the box. Per the Anthro Personal Stylist review, I ordered my normal size 6. The fit was fine in one foot, but almost too snug in the other. I imagine that over time it would stretch so I am not sure if I would order half a size up, but likely would if I were to keep them. Given the fit, I had these buckled on the second to last hole, so half a size up with a tighter fit around the ankle might have been perfect. Again, just my personal experience, others may experience a different fit. Unfortunately, I am returning these as the soles were a bit slick while walking on tile and I could see myself taking a mighty spill in these 4" heels. They were fine on carpet, but unfortunately, or fortunately as it were, the world is not carpeted so back they go. If you can navigate in these, I highly recommend these, the black and white print (though almost looks dark brown in certain light) with the copper accent leather is truly gorgeous.

Darling and Unexpectedly Flattering
I bought the "black and white" version. As another reviewer noted, they are actually dark brown and off white, with bronze metallic straps and accents. The whole effect is a neutral shoe that will go with anything. The color palette is really darling and just eye catching. They are just special. I'm typically a size 5.5 ish with narrow feet and high arches. The size 6 fit wonderfully. What really grabbed me was how comfortable they were given the heel height. I don't normally wear heels often because I have such a hard time walking in them and being comfortable. The issue is small feet--high heels on smaller sizes create a much sharper foot angle from heel to toe. So a size 10 foot in a 4 inch heel is pretty moderate, while the same heel height on a 5.5 foot is crazy high (think tippy, tippy toes high). Most shoes don't adjust for this difference when sizing (though some brands do). However, given this and the fact that I rarely wear heels, I was able to go dancing for 8 hours before feeling like, ok maybe I should change into flats (not like it was killing me, but just that it was time to change). And no sore foot beds the next day (which happens). They don't feel very stable on at first, sort of slippery on the ground, but once you start wearing them, they are are stable, really well put together, and comfortable.

Neutral with personality
These are classy shoes in neutral tones (despite being called black and white, they really are, as they appear in the photo, more of a very dark brown), so they could presumably go with many outfits, yet they have so much more personality than a typical neutral shoe. They make your legs look great, and the heel offers a lot of support while still being feminine. I've only worn them in the house so can't vouch for their all-day comfort. I normally wear a 9 1/2, and these fit true to size.
This wedge is so comfortable, the leather is so soft! I got them in black because I have so much brown and they are so classy looking. Great for fall, winter or summer! Can't wait to wear them out.

I ordered 2 pair!
I could not decide if I should order brown or black so bought both and so happy. These boots are very comfortable and are especially great for transition seasons. So happy with my purchase.

Love and ADORE
I bought these in pink, just because it was a different color for me, and really these are amazing. I just put them on and walked around the house in them, so for the long hall I am not sure how they will do, but they feel fantastic. Great heel height, and comfy. I have WIDE feet, and they are great, maybe even a tad big. The "leather" is not stiff at all, though the zipper at the heel sticks a bit, but maybe with more use it will loosen up.....I am actually going to purchase in brown because that is how great they are.....
Bought these boots on sale, worth every penny. I have wide feet and normally wear an 8.5 due to this, but the 8 fit me perfectly. There's even some room left for socks! I wore these out the first nite I got them and was walking for 6+ hours and did not get a single blister. This is a miracle. I love these boots and would highly recommend them. I gave a 4 on quality only because the heel isn't wood and I feel it just kind of cheapens it. Color as appears in photo.

boot runs a half size larger in my opinion ..I wore thicker socks to fix that. The cut out is lovely and the boot is so comfortable to wear for hours.

Almost Perfect and I love them
As other reviewers raved, these are light, well made, and overall cutest booties which I adore. The only drawback is that the sole is a bit slippery and they make a very audible clicky sound when walking (I notice folks on the street turning back to see who's approaching lol), but this too will be remedied through wear and tear over time. Anywho, two thumbs up!
I wore them for the first time last night and got so many compliments. I wanted the brown but they were out in my size but so happy I ended up with the blue. They are really comfortable and look so great with dark jeans. I love these boots!

Really good looking booties. Feels comfy. Got the blue ones on sale. Totally worth it! Feels true to size.

I love this boot! Goes with lots and is comfortable to wear. I found it to be true to size.
So my usual shoe size is a 6, but I ordered a 5 after reading the other reviews. I'm glad I listened to them! The 5 fit me perfectly, they would have been too big on me if I had ordered 6. The material is soft and the detailing is beautiful!

I bought these in a 10, I normally wear a ten and it was perfect. They are comfortable, they are a little more pointed then pictured, but that's okay, these will look great with a skirt or skinny jeans in the fall before it snows! Very much like!

I ordered the black ones and they are beautiful shoes, however they run a bit big and they do not sell them in half sizes but perhaps order a size down.
