Rated 5 out of 5Â by wahlsl I am glad I did not miss out on these
I initially saw these in the new catalog and it was love (it helped that I was looking for a pair of brown booties). I pulled the trigger at full price and am glad I did as my size is sold out. I was extremely pleased when I received them. The quality is EXCELLENT for the price and they are very comfortable. I would say they run TTS to a bit large (my feet are wider and they fit with no problem). I have a narrow ankle and they fit well, they may be tight on those with a larger ankle. My one comment is the leather while high quality will show wear/mark over time. If this will bother you, this may not be your boot. Anthro, please carry more from this brand!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by GeoInCalifornia Color is different! Rubbery Leather! TTS to Large!
I wish listed these boots and returned later to find they were sold out and on back order into 2014. I couldn't believe my luck when a pair of 8.5's popped back. I grabbed them!
SIZE: I normally wear an 8. If a med width looks slightly narrow I size up to an 8.5. My foot is slightly wide across the toes, while everything back is narrow. My vamp (instep) is low. I usually need a strap to keep shoes/boots on my feet.
FIT: These fit great up front. The toe cap and heel have hard support to hold shape, but the sides of the shoe are flexible. If your foot is a bit wide, there should be no problem. However, if you have a narrow heel, these might be very loose. My foot slid up and down while walking, so it felt like they were falling off. I went to the tightest buckle hole, but they still felt too loose. My low vamp made matters worse, and there are no laces or strap to tighten the fit across the top. There was too much space around my foot everywhere. If you plan to walk any distance, there is room for inserts. These need the extra padding.
DETAILS: The inside is backed in soft brown suede, but I didn't care for the rubbery feel of the leather. Folds bulged out around my ankle where they were too big. I don't have small ankles. I tried these on with very thin socks. The straps on this pair already looked creased and distressed. The sole is anti slip, and flexible for comfortable walking. The heel is sensible and well made.
COLOR: I took photos, but Anthro isn't accepting them at this time. When I used flash, the color looked like the online photos. Without flash, the color is tan with no orange and the leather is not as glossy as the online photos suggest.
I agree with the first reviewer, the leather scratches easily. Applying Mink Oil on a regular basis, will waterproof, help prevent scratches and keep the leather from drying out.
I adore the color-blocked effect on the sides of the shoe. But wasn't in love with the seam down the front. For me, these lack the girly details I love in a boot. I was also expecting the same rich color as in the online photos.
There is a care guide, and brand info booklet included in the box.
These are recommended and deserve 5 stars. TTS to slightly large! These will work for slightly wide feet. If you have a narrow heel or low vamp, these may slip when walking. Size up if between sizes or you plan to wear thick socks. Don't expect the color to look the same as the online photos.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by greenmeadow74 Amazing boots
I slept on the idea of ordering these boots for some nights as I wasn't sure how the fit would be. I usually wear size 7-7.5 but my feet are not exactly easy to buy footwear for, especially anything higher than 1 inch, due to their sensitivity and lack of arch, let alone buying online. When these finally came, I was thrilled - they are absolutely beautiful and unique. They fit true to size (I ordered a 7).The colour, even though not as dark and vivid as shown on the website picture, is still great and goes well with almost anything. The boots require very little breaking-in. I walk around at work for the whole day without having any discomfort. Received many compliments. Love! Love! Love! Well-worth the price and hefty duty charge to have them sent to Canada.
