Rated 2 out of 5Â by Carlyekat Pointy Oxford Booties
I bought these boots on sale thinking they were a great value for the price. I though the quality and color of the suede were very nice, however the were not aesthetically appealing to me due to the shape of the boots. When I put on the boots they had SUPER pointy toes! I also did not like them because they were much shorter than most ankle booties I have worn in the past. I thought they were barely taller than oxfords on my ankles. Also, I bought these in a size 39, which is supposed to be approximately an 8.5 in U.S. sizing, they were slightly too loose in the heel area so size 38 wouldn't have fit well at all. I will be returning these today.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by alimei16 High quality booties, slightly off on design/fit
Color: The image is slightly misleading since the booties are more like a taupe nude than the warm nude pictured. These don't match my skintone at all since it does have slight grey undertones, but they still give the illusion of elongating my petite legs.
Fit: The ideal size for me would be 37.5 (correlates to a US size 7 in some brands), but I didn't want to risk pinching my toes, so I got the next size up available, which was a 38. The ankle area of the boot is slightly wide doesn't quite hold my feet in completely, but I can still walk in them without anything irritating or blistering my ankles. The size 38 is slightly too big on the footbed, but probably the better fit considering the bootie's toe area is a pointy almond shape. To be honest, the fit is generally ok and doesn't bother me too much.
Design: I was disappointed that the gold strip (one of the main reasons I purchased these booties) was not as shiny as I had anticipated.
Quality: the leather is AMAZING! there is even a leather footbed that is actually quite comfortable to walk around all day on.
Verdict: Keeping. I have been searching for the perfect nude booties for the longest time (what I was looking for in a nude bootie: pointy almond toe, not high on the ankles, has a slight edginess to the design, comfortable, very low heel, the color would be close to my skintone), and these satisfy my cravings for now. I hope to make them my workhorse booties for fall, winter, and next spring.

The booties are a great style and the quality seemed nice enough. I ordered my regular size and they pinched my toes. I will be returning them.
