As soon as these shoes appeared online, I knew that these were the lace-inset booties I'd been searching for the past few years. I ordered my usual 9. The shoes fit fine on my foot except for the toes--the shoe narrows quite a bit at the front, resulting in the middle and especially fourth toe to be jammed (due to the heel) against the front of the shoe. You can see in the picture how much narrower the front of the shoe is compared to the front of my foot. I have long, narrow feet and I have never had this problem before--most of the time, my heel slips in shoes. I tried the shoes with and without socks and I even cut my toenails to stubs, but I could not make these work. Aside from that the shoes are of decent quality--the front appears to be sewn but the back of the shoe is glued, somewhat sloppily. The leather on my pair was a bit dry and would need to be conditioned before wearing them. There were also small, black marks (pen?) on the left shoe. I'm returning them.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by shopgirlchic These arrived last week, I was holding out for a review but committed when the free shipping promo came out. They really are pretty, I am still on the fence as to whether or not I will keep them because of the light color as I do not want them to just sit in the box because I am scared to get them dirty!
I love Miss Albright and the fit is comfortable as always with this brand. I am an 8 1/2 and always go up to a 9 for boots which is great but I could have fit into the 8 1/2 fine as well. They are well made and the leather/lace combo is unique and the zipper adds a bit of edge. Color is true to online, a buttery cream colour.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by SarinPak Absolutely adorable!
I honestly love this recent purchase I made. However, I do have to agree with the other ladies, it is kind of painful wearing these bad boys around all day. I suggest purchasing a half size or full size bigger.
This pair of booties seriously matches every single one of my outfits!!! I can play them down during the day, and play them up during nighttime extravaganza's at the bar.
I have gotten numerous compliments on them too!!!
I was kind of afraid of getting them dirty as well, but I feel like it adds character to the shoe ;)
