Â by GeoInCalifornia Size up! Delicate!
These booties turn everyday apparel into a cheerful holiday outfit.
SIZE: I normally wear a US 8, sometimes an 8.5. The initial reviews mentioned a tight instep, so I ordered a EURO 39. My foot is slightly wide across the front, narrow at the heel, with a low vamp.
FIT: These run small. The 39 fits perfect in length, and is snug all around. The instep is tight, but not uncomfortable, because the leather is soft and flexible. If you have a high vamp or wide foot, these may not work. My narrow heel does not slip out the back, The Foot-bed is adequately padded. What makes these a hit is the flexible anti slip sole.
I wore these booties shopping for several hours and found them comfortable.
DETAILS: Because the heel has minimal support at the back, and the fit is snug, I had to pull these on. Iâ€™m not wild about the wire-like ties, but they donâ€™t come undone. The lining is cream leather and the topline is cut clean. The decoration colors are bright pink, purple, red, and green with brown outline.
QUALITY: The welt is painted brown and has a few rough cut edges. Several construction issues can be seen in the online images. The front of my boots suffered chips in the brown paint when I wore them the first day. The decoration appears to be hand done since there are differences between the left and right boot.
Recommended! Size up! The fit is snug but flexible. If you are a 1/2 size, expect them to fit slightly big if sizing up, or slightly small if sizing down. The welt is painted and delicate so treat with care. These were worth the sale price plus B-day discount.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by raffy Very distinctive boots
I was very pleased with these boots. They are exactly as shown in the picture and seem very well made. They are slightly tight over the instep but I am sure this will stretch with a couple of wears. I was worried that the embroidered panel would be too bright but they are just lovely and best worn with a single coloured dress or skirt.
I know I am going to be wearing these for many years..

Rated 5 out of 5Â by MissS beautiful and comfortable
very special design and fit remarkably well. I have a narrow heel, so I am used to shoes being loose in the heel. This one is no different. However, the sold is really comfortable and gives good arch support. Overall, I love the way they feel. My one complaint is that there is somewhat of a consistency in the brown leather coloring between the two shoes. Subtle, but I was not the only one who noticed. it might make a difference if I oil the leather.
