I saw these boots online and knew I had to order them and see if they were as stylish in person as they appeared online. They are gorgeous! The suede is soo soft and the sole of the boot is very well made with excellent padding for extra comfort. I typically avoid heeled boots or shoes for work, but these boots are so comfortable that I find myself wearing them to work quite often! I will be purchasing the boot in cognac as well. These boots are a must have.

How have I already missed out??
Anthro, these are the perfect boots! I looked for them all through last fall and winter and couldn't find them and then here they were on my favourite website. But I want the cognac and they don't even appear anymore! Are they all gone? Will there be more? I am devastated! How have I missed out already and it's not even fall yet??

I second the note above! I had the same reaction to the cognac no longer being on the site.
But now I see the gray is back up again so I hope the cognac will be added as well!
I recently purchased this shoe in-store and found it to run a half size smaller, due to whole-number sizing only. So if you're a half-size, I'd recommend ordering down instead of up.
While trying on these shoes, I noticed in a couple pairs that the right inner-sole had a staple or a nail actually poking through the fabric! I chose a pair that didn't seem to have that problem...but after my first full day of wearing them, I can feel something similar poking through my right shoe's inner sole as well! I will be putting inserts in to prevent more wear and tear on the insoles... I'm really glad I got them on sale instead of full price!
That said, the material of these shoes is COMFORTABLE. The insole material, the ankle strap and the shootie part are all very cozy. The heel is tall, but so sturdy, and the soles & heel really show minimal wear & tear after a day of party hosting, set up/tear down, and driving.

Love these! They look great and they are pretty comfortable. They fit true to size, but a little wide. However, I have slim feet!

These are so cute and great quality! I'm usually an 8.5, but went with a 9 since they are only in whole sizes. They fit well. The heel is a little higher than I thought, but they are very comfortable. I got the gold color and love them, would get the brown too if I didn't already have 15 shoes in that color.
After reading the reviews, I purchased the 8.5 and am glad that I did. I vary in shoe sizes 8 or 8.5 (more typically purchasing 8.5) and always wear a European size 39. The 8.5 in this shoe fit absolutely perfect. The first time i wore them, they were on my feet all day and they were very comfortable throughout the day. I find that higher heeled shoes with any sort of tapered toe often squish me across my toes but these fit my foot without any tightness. The ankle strap never pulled when I walked. I found that the strap just needed a loose tie and was not a big necessity to keep the shoe in place. It also stayed tied all day. The design of the shoe is a very high quality.

I ordered the 6 1/2 and just had to send off for the 7. Lovely design. but order a half size up - even if you are wearing them with thin tights.

I ordered a 7.5 & an 8, I never know which will fit. I am a true 8 in most shoes, and that is the case with this pair, too. I like that the laces are adjustable for width's sake. I have a wider foot, and the smaller size was unbearable. The heel height makes these very wearable and versatile. These are pretty comfortable, I think they will become more flexible with wear, but they are not super-cushioned. Attractive leather, kind of rugged looking, but not at all bulky. Will look cute with ankle-bearing crops. I also want to try them with tights!
Really lovely pair of boots- they look very similar to the image. If anything differs, it would be the color of the heel.. appears a bit more reddish purple in real life than in the picture would suggest.
I usually don't wear shoes with a very tall heel, so perhaps that's partly the reason (could also be because I have wider feet), but these shoes were VERY uncomfortable the first day I wore them. So painful that I was about to try to return them the next day. But I decided to stick it out, and have worn them a few more times since then. While they still are not comfortable by any means, they're bearable... and worth it considering how cute and flattering they are. So if you're used to wearing heels or have narrower feet, then I'd say definitely go for it! But if either of those two statements don't apply to you, then you've been warned :)
But I'm still happy with my purchase and hope that with more wear they will become less uncomfortable!

The ad is not truthful about heel height. It is a 3 3/4" heel.
The fit is snug, so maybe order a size up, especially if you plan on wearing more than a stocking or tights with these boots.

Beautiful in real life, but I should have listened to the prior review and sized up. My normal 9.5 was a no-go; hoping the size 10s I exchanged for will work.
The second I put these shoes on my feet I was inundated with compliments ;-) I would have given these shoes the highest possible review but unfortunately after one month, one of the gems fell out :-(. I was unable to find it so I cannot wear then anymore. SO if you do purchase these shoes (which you definitely should), I suggest getting the gems reinforced somehow.

I love this shoes
I love this shoes!!! They look so pretty in the feet and are really comfy, right size also! Very happy with this purchase.
These shoes are so, so gorgeous. If you're as charmed by them online as I was, just wait until you see them in person! I bought a pair of the blue slippers in a 38, and they fit like a dream. I swore I was Cinderella as I put them on. The color in the photo is fairly accurate as they are a shimmery dusk blue with flecks of silver in them. Despite the fact that they are long and flat, they are pretty comfortable, although there is no sole support. In the 38, I have enough room to move my toes and my heels won't scrape and chafe at the back, but they're still snug on. I usually wear a US 7 in shoes, and I think had I gone down a size, these would have been too tight. More or less, I would say the 38s are true to size. The buckles have a really lovely sparkle and are fastened securely to the top, and the little bit of gold gives flair without seeming gaudy. Really, take advantage of the sale and buy these little gems! They are truly elegant, and are probably the loveliest pair of shoes I own.

This is the best shoe ever and very comfortable fits true to size. Even more beautiful in person
I love this shoe. It fit true to size. Very well made and stylish. This shoe can be worn with skirts, dresses, jeans, pants. Very versatile. I love the silver on the shoe compliments the suede color perfectly. Highly recommend this shoe and couldn't beat the price. I love the sole is leather as well.

I saw these shoes styled with the Goldform Trousers and couldn't get my mind off of them, so when they finally showed up for sale, I jumped on them despite the exorbitant price (I had a birthday discount, but even then, I haven't paid this much for shoes I know I won't wear particularly often in years). They're just so unique...sturdy and aggressive (grommet details and chunky, sculptural heel), yet feminine with the ribbon laces and cutouts.
The only minor issue I have with these shoes is that the grommets are silver, and not gold. The picture here depicts gold grommets, but in the picture of the shoes styled with the trousers, they are silver.
Sizing seems fairly true - I usually wear size 9 (occasionally a 9.5) and these fit fine in 9. The toe hole of the right shoe rubs a little bit, but I figure the leather will stretch out in time.
