Rated 5 out of 5 by Crew Add Fun to Winter
LOOK: You can not tell from pictures how dressy the fabric is. It is almost like a velvet or corduroy. It has a nice sheen to it. Just enough to add a little dressiness. I thought they would be cotton canvas like Chucks, but they are much nicer.
FIT: True to size. I am a 7-7.5 in Miss Albright's. I got the 7.5 so I could wear thick socks for winter. Comfortable height and well balanced.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mbird1 Great sheen
I agree with the other reviewer that these shoes have a great sheen that is not shown well in the photos. The fit is TTS although I'm not sure that I could wear thick socks (I plan to wear with tights or thin socks). I'm used to knee high boots so getting used to where these boots hit on my ankle is uncomfortable (would have been better i think at about an inch lower or even higher) but it's worth breaking them in because they look so great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bludog A bright spot
I purchased these oline as a whim and was absolutely stunned by how much I like them. They fit TTS and are surprisingly comfortable. I will be more likely to wear these in spring and summer, as winter can be quite messy in Chicago. Since these are fabric, they are not as warm/sturdy as leather - but that is also what will make them comfortable in summer with skirts and ankle-length or cropped pants. The bright color and bold pattern will certainly attract attention. These are not for wallflowers!
