Rated 2 out of 5Â by AnArtistatHeart Beautiful but big.
This beautiful shoe in my usual size 10 was easily a full size too large. The look of the shoe is great and the overall quality is average, but the fit of the shoe is awkward and bulky and the execution just wasn't comfortable for me. The heel is fairly high for those of you who don't have to be on your feet too much or if you don't mind taking a cab.

These boots are amazing! I just got them in the mail and immediately took them out for a spin. No need to break them in, they are super comfy on the first wear. And I'm a person who does not wear heels EVER. I saw these and wanted to expand my wardrobe a little for spring, so I thought I'd take a chance. I'm really glad I did, despite the other 2 star review. I actually looked them up and everywhere else they are getting 4-5 stars.
I'm a size 7 1/2 (7-8 depending on brand), but ordered the 7 thinking a little bit tighter fit would help with the heel factor. Of course, having the straps helps from keeping things from slipping as you walk. I put true to size though, since the fit is comfortable for me. What makes them so comfortable is that the cut-out areas allow the foot to get air flow, making them perfect for spring. Also, the thick stacked heel distributes weight across a larger surface, instead of a tiny point making them quite comfortable to walk in. I just wore them out for the first time last night for 5 hours and I felt like I was wearing flats the whole time!
My other concern besides how comfy the heeled shoe would be was that I have skinny and bony ankles and most ankles boots are huge in the ankle area, making my legs look like they are swimming in them. Not these though; the buckles allow adjustments to make them come in a the ankles for a very attractive silhouette. I was also a little worried the buckles would bother my bony ankles, but again because of the ability to adjust them, they don't come in so tightly that they rub the bone there.
I would have paid full price, but I'm extra lucky I got them at the sale price! All in all, amazing shoes, very glad I went out of my comfort zone to take a risk and get these.
