by HikerChic LOVE LOVE LOVE...after getting them stretched
These are officially my favorite pair of booties. I absolutely love them. They go with everything; they make my denim shirtdress look super cowgirl chic, they make my plain blue sheath dress into a trendy day to evening look, they also pull together my street wear outfits! (They look especially sexy with the orange color Pilco Serif cord leggings, also on sale!) I really like that they opening is a tad bit big - it gives them an effortless, thrown together look.
When I got these in the mail, I was absolutely elated to see that they are just as cute in person as online. However, I COULD NOT get my foot into the boot. The shaft was wide enough, but it was so narrow through the bridge of the boot (where the shaft goes into the toebox) that I had to get them stretched. Luckily, I have a master cobbler right up the street and for a few additional bucks, I got a gorgeous pair of boots.
I also found that they fit pretty small - I am a true size 7, and got a EU 38 in these and still couldn't get my foot in them. I definitely can't wear them with thick socks, they are a tad bit tight.

Rated 2 out of 5 by VeritaBella Beautiful...but unwearable.
The shoes are a supple grey, with slight darker fade toward the toe, and the floral pattern is beautiful at the ankle. However, the leather is very stiff and difficult to wear. I have a narrow, flexible foot, so putting them on wasn't too difficult. But the opening was very stiff and much too wide for my ankle. Even with a thick sock, it still looked very awkward. I feel that the fit was TTS, but the heel would pop when I walked. Since the shoe had no movement, it was like walking with cinder blocks on my feet.
I feel that the shoe would work much better for a person with a normal to full ankle and calf area. Much too wide and stiff for my narrow ankle and foot.
So sorry to leave a negative review- because they are beautiful shoes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SeraReed Beautiful, comfortable staple
These are not Holding Horses, but actually Jasper & Jeera, a brand I haven't previously purchased. They are very comfortable and I love the ankle height. Sometimes the woven tops on boots like this are all individual and different, however this boot is the same no matter what pair you get. The toe and heel are a little darker than the rest of the boot, but it gives it more dimension and is not distracting. The gray is just what is shown here and is a great neutral that I normally don't gravitate towards. The bottoms have no grip, but nothing that a walk around the block can't fix.
