I was eager to get my hands on these from the moment I saw them on line.. Thankfully there was no disappointment when they arrived! The color was perfect, accurately matching the shade and description on this sight. I was a little nervous about fit. I wear size 11 medium (occasionally 10.5) and from past experience not all size 41's are created equal. I have to admit these were very snug upon initial try on. I blame it all on the bony growth thats starting form on the side of my big toe where joint and ball of foot meet.. (yes, the b-word.. eek!). For those less fortunate than I, width should not be an issue. I started to panic because I couldn't even get them zipped up... this being such a handsome bootie I was determined to make it fit. My experience with quality leather is that there is significant give once the shoe is broken in. With my objective clearly in sight I wore them around the house (probably 2 days) until they zipped up were comfortable enough to wear out. These were not short in length but a little narrow around the heel. Fit around he ankle was fine (enough space to tuck in skinny jeans if the shaft was taller). I would recommend this item to anyone who wants something edgy but not overly faddish. I love the taupe/grey palate as a summer neutral. This pairs well with the candy brights/pastels of this season and equally appealing with tribal prints or basic shades. I also love pieces that are cross-seasonal and envision wearing these through fall and early of winter. The 4 star rating reflects the issue I had with width, other than that they're FABULOUS!!

  • How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Color was exactly as pictured on the sight
  • Please tell us about the quality of the product. High quality leather. The heel is solid and over all structure of the shoe.
  • How accurate was the sizing? Runs small, needs some stretching
