I bought these in gray and overall really love them. They've got some funk appeal, are practical because their flat and look great with skirts or pants. I suspect these will be heavy in the rotation for me this fall/winter.If you have a very high instep, or want to wear thicker socks, you may consider going a half size up.I saw others say that they run true to size... however I had a moment when I thought my instep was going to keep me from getting them on. Thankfully the zipper goes ALL the way down past ankle. If you've had to get a half size up in other boots before, you may want to consider it for these.For the ladies with thicker calfs, I happily report that I was able to zip these all the way up, and even tuck some skinny jeans into them.
