I had never purchased any shoe product online so I was very hesitant about not being able to try these on first. However, I've been unable to find what I was looking for at a great price at the mall. I've had great experiences with other products on overstock so I did a quick search, and these boots came up right away. I felt like I was risking a lot but I know that O has a good return policy. With all the great reviews, I finally decided to take the plunge and hoped I'd be pleasantly suprised. These boots surpassed my expectations in comfort, look, and quality, and the price was half of what I would have payed anywhere else - the only other ones that even came close was at a discount shoe store and they were such poor quality for the same price as these. I've been wearing these boots nearly two or three times a week ever since - they look awesome with leggings and a long sweater or sweater dress. It feels like you are wearing bedroom slippers - they are so comfortable, and I can wear them all day at work and straight into a long night out. I'm back to see if I can get them in another color. I think they'd also look great with skinny jeans and am now in the market for my first pair just to wear with these boots! I am between a 6.5 and sometimes a 7 - I went with the 6.5 and can still wear them with thicker socks, even tho many say they run small. If you are nervous about purchasing shoes online, take all these reviews as a sign that everyone loves these boots and they are worth taking the risk on!! I think they'd also make a great gift.
