I have been on the hunt for the perfect bootie. I was surprised that I liked these so much because I am tall and don't wear heels often, infact I often shy away from buying shoes with heels altogether. But these -- these are perfection. I honestly forget they have a heel they are so comfortable. Like another reviewer mentioned they have squishy insoles, which I think really helps. I also LOVE the little slit detail in the front (I think it's kind of hard to see in the picture), but I think it makes them really unique.

Gorgeous booties perfect for autumn
I've been on the hunt for the perfect pair of booties for this fall, and I found it here at Anthro. These leather Seychelles booties are KILLER. I took a chance and ordered both the black and the cognac colors, and I'm in love with them both. They are SO comfortable -- the foot bed is padded, and the heel is high enough to look fashionable but not so high that it's painful to walk in. I did experience some rubbing at the ankle, but it was just a matter of breaking in the boots. I highly recommend these booties!!

I was looking for a bright pair of cognac booties for the fall and winter and I was blown away at the leather and overall quality of these! The heel is a little higher than I originally wanted but I kind of dig the height after wearing them a bit. I always wear thin socks with boots and had no problems with rubbing at the toe box or up top. I have wide feet, so these gems were a lucky find for me! Also, they have a rubber bottom, which makes them great for going out for dinner or drinks. My fiance loves these on me ;)
I ordered a size 5. They were a little big, so I wear them with my insole insert (no smaller sizes are offered). These shoes are comfortable, not to high, and has a beautiful heel design. Love this shoe!

The design of the shoe is gorgeous and they are very comfortable too.. Color is as shown. Leather is very soft. I didn't find that they ran large, but if are between sizes I think it's better to round down. I don't recommend a whole shoe size down though.
I was disappointed with the quality of the shoe, however, especially for the price. Since the heel of the shoe is separated by the gold lining, individual pieces of leather were cut and glued for each of the 4 parts. Well, all the pieces aren't cut perfectly, some are a tad too small, some a tad too long. I expected better quality from a shoe this price. I would definitely wait until they have another 20% off sale or they go on clearance, otherwise, I don't think they're worth it.

Well made; run large
I am a true 9 1/2 and since these don't come in half sizes, I ordered a 9 and a 10. The 10 is huge and even the 9 seems slightly big, but I think an 8 would be too small so will probably keep the 9.
They are extremely comfortable and very well made. Definitely worth the price! I got them to go with a dress from BHLDN to wear at my rehearsal dinner and will bring them on my honeymoon to Hawaii as they will go with several of my dresses! Can't wait to wear these shoes!
I saw these shoes when they were on sale but they did not have my size. I looked one day and there was a size 6 and I pretty much ordered it on the spot!
I am usually a 5.5 in shoes and I am glad I read the other reviews about the size running small. The fit of a size 6 feels like a 5.5, which works for me. The quality of the material is better than I expected and I am pleased with my purchase. Great at the sale price!

I should have paid attention!
I fell so in love with the photo, I didn't pay attention to the reviewer indicating they "run small" Or maybe it was just that I was hoping she was wrong. She was right! And it's not just small in length. For me, they were small in width, too. Especially around the toe area.
It killed me to have to return these shoes. They are so incredible! I could just see the look on my girlfriends' faces when I showed up in these shoes. They are so beautifully made, and the details are absolutely extraordinary. I'm totally jealous if you find the 1/2-size larger than you normally wear available. These are the best!

I saw these shoes in one of my local anthro's as a return... and they were a size 5.5 and caught my eye right away! I normally wear size 5.5 for shoes and occasionally size 6. The size 5.5 fit me but was snug on the toes so a 6 would have done the trick. So sad that these are out of stock, the quality was nice even though it is a cloth shoe, and very sturdy. Such a pretty shoe and I can see it going with so much... I say anthropologie should bring this shoe back for spring! they would be perfect for spring!
I love these boots. They are so pretty. Great quality. The problem is that they are difficult to put on. No back zip, so prepare to struggle a bit. Also, they are too narrow. I have a normal to wide foot, and they were just too narrow. Unfortunately they are going back.

These are beautiful, high quality boots. Fit TTS. Bought both colors!

I am super happy with my booties! I was blown away with the level of craftsmanship! The black leather pebbling is so beautiful and the sole is so comfy. I ordered a size 38 as I usually wear a 7 1/2 and they fit perfectly.
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.
These boots are great. I especially like that they're not knee-high. I'm 5'5" and the height of the boots is perfect for me. I will actually look for more boots at this height because I think it's actually a little more flattering than knee-high. These boots are comfortable and cute. Solid purchase.

PURCHASE THESE NOW!!! DONT THINK TWICE!
These are, without doubt, the most comfortable boots I have owned thus far in my life. If you are considering these, I would recommend you purchase them, and never look back. Nice work Anthro, you've done it again!

LOVE these boots!
I'm 5'3" and have large calves. It's difficult to find boots that fit well. These hit right under the largest part of my calves. You wouldn't be able to wear your jeans tucked in if you have larger calves. I hope this helps someone. I took a change. I'm glad I did. Oh and they do look exactly like the picture.
I have been looking for over the knee boots under $500 FOREVER. I have long legs and very slender calves so I always have problems finding non-pull-on, non-stretch fabric affordable boots, but over the knee was especially problematic. These are great: they are beautiful with the suede scaled back, comfortable, run true to size -I'm 9, are actually OVER my knee, not in the middle of it, and the circumference is not too wide. They are still a little loose in calf area but not so much that they would look bad. They fit great over skinny pants. I am keeping these and can't wait to wear them.

I am so glad I ordered this pair of shoes. They are very well made and very comfortable to wear. They are also stylish and easy to put on and take off.

These boots are amazing. I waited almost two months to receive them in the mail (size in black was backordered) and it was worth it. The leather is good quality, they have the fun scaling detail on the back, and my favorite feature is that the height can be adjusted (roll the tops down a bit if you are uncomfortable wearing such a tall boot). I have a petite body type and they still look nice on me. True to size. Will definitely be a staple in my closet.
