These are definitely cute boots, and about what I anticipated for the price. The quality isn't the best, but again, what I expected. The material is nice, pretty thin, but the upper part is lined, so they have a nice shape. From the picture, I expected the buckles to be gaudy gold, and was planning on painting or replacing them, but they're actually brushed metal, and not bad looking at all. I have average-width feet, and wear a 7.5 to 8 in sandals and 8 to 8.5 in shoes/boots, so I ordered the 8.5 in these. They definitely run SMALL; my toe is touching the end. I'm wearing them around inside for a while before I decide if I'll keep them--most likely I will, because returning is such a hassle--but I definitely will never be able to wear thick socks with them. I would recommend ordering a size up from what you normally wear! In other news, these boots have ZERO support. I mean *none*. They are absolutely flat, and the sole is really thin. I've been wearing them inside for about a half hour, and my feet already hurt a lot. Plan on buying good arch support inserts for these. Overall, very cute looking boot, average quality, disappointing comfort level, great price...and again, they run small. Buy a size up and some inserts, and you'll be all set!!
The boots are quite a bit shorter than I was expecting, but only because they slouch A LOT more than the picture shows. When pulled all the way up, they do look like the picture, but they will not stay up on my leg. The fabric used for the boots is thin so its not sturdy enough to stay up on its own. I still do like the boots for what they are, but its just not what I was expecting from the picture.
Yes, these boots are cute. However, they are FLIMSY from top to bottom. They literally have NO inserts, NO walking support and NO linings and paper thin soles. For the money they ended up being very expensive slippers for inside use only. I am pretty sure they will not hold up well in wet weather. I actually bought 2 pairs- one black and one brown. As soon as I opened them I wished I had paid more attention to some of the other reviews that mentions how low quality they were. These are NOT a good choice for safe or warm outdoor use. They will be really cute to prance around the house in during home gatherings, which is what I will do with them. BEWARE - I wear a size 8 ALWAYS.... and these are so big on me that I have to wear 2 pairs of socks with them. They are at least (if not more then) 1 size too big! You are probably asking yourself, "why did she keep them".... easy answer- I am too lazy to mess with returning stuff so instead I find a use for the overpriced slipper/boots.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? True colors.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Low quality with flimsy suede leather and paper thin soles.
- How accurate was the sizing? NOT ACCURATE SIZING - these run at least a full size too big....order 1 size smaller then you normally wear.
These boots are very cute and stylish. I wear them with jeans to look casual and they also look great with tights and a dress. Two drawbacks, they are cheap so they're not the best quality and the soles are fairly slippery. If you live someplace with snow and ice, you may want to consider having the soles replaced - pretty cheap thing to do. Overall - great purchase, I'm VERY satisfied with them!
I actually returned this item because I didn't like the quality of them. The material appeared cheap.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? matched
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Not that great, reminded me of shoes from payless
- How accurate was the sizing? fine
This is the second pair I ordered. Typically I wear a size 9 and the first pair was exactly that. I had to order a half size bigger and they fit great. I LoVE them, they are comfortable and look great. If you need a lot of arch support, these do not have that. The bottom soles are flat and somewhat thin. I would and have recommended them to a friend.
I would not be so upset if they would have refunded me my money instead of giving me store credit that I did not want. I only took one shoe out of the box and within 10 seconds put it back. I filled out all paperwork as instructed and did everything I was asked and still did not get my money back. I ordered this shoe and the calf is wide alright but the shoe part is so narrow I couldn't even think about getting my foot down in it! It does not have a zipper or anything so you can fit your foot down in it. I tried to get my foot down in it for a few seconds but it was so cheap made, I was afraid I would tear it! I may have a bigger calf but my foot is tiny! I most definitely would NOT recommend ordering these.
I didn't believe it when someone said these shoes run short. They do! They are a little hard to get on but hoping it will get easier over time. I should have bought a size up which is something that I never do in footwear. For the money they are cute enough. I'm sure they won't last forever but I will get my money out of them.
These boots aren't awful quality. They're OK for the price that they are listed as. They do slouch quite a bit...for some reason more on one side than the other. Other reviewers complained about them being uncomfortable but I am on hour 8 of wearing them for the first time and my feet feel fine and have stayed warm so far.
