I wanted these boots so badly - beautiful leather, style... seems like FP reads the reviews based on responses to the comments; however, why not update the listing with the correct details? Like 'too tall for tiny' comment - was worried about the shaft height but figured with the extra circumference give, could slouch them down... The circumference is not 16", my calves are just under 14" and I had just a little give around the opening - not as described. Returned.

Love these boots! I have them in black. They are minimal enough to wear them with almost anything. They have great detailing and the leather is a great quality!
Rated 4 out of 5Â by marissarose So excited...
to wear these in fall! I'm 5'7 100 pounds size 8 in shoes, so I got these in 8. I wore them once with thin socks to get used to them and the ankle area were loose for me...wearing them with skinny jeans and thicker socks will hopefully fix the problem. I have extra space just like in the picture for that slouchy look. The shoes that came looks like the last picture of just the boots just alone.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Probity Beautiful leather, a bit tight around the calves.
I've been eyeing these boots since their release last year, and could never justify the price but continuously looked for better deals. Finally, I found a black pair in my normal size (8/38) in black for 170$, but I wanted to give you fellow fashion-craving women out there a perspective of the sizing.
I'm 140lbs, 5'7", and my calves just hit 14" in circumference. At first, I had a relatively difficult time zipping the boots up all the way to the top, and they almost felt a half a size too small. So what I did, even though it's 95 degrees here, I wore these boots in my apartment for a couple hours a day and would do simple stretches in them and stretch my ankles while sitting around. Now, I'm wearing them with skinny jeans and socks! Still snug, but I can only imagine they'll stretch out more and be even more comfortable.
It's a very high quality leather; I'm still memorized by the smell every time I open my shoe shelf and put them on. And even though a bit snug, they still sag at the ankles and look fantastic. I really can't believe how versatile this boot is while styling -- they look adorable with a sweater dress, skinny jeans and a long white boyfriend button up, or even your favorite white frock. Just the other day I wore these paired up with a snug black blazer and beaded peach dress. They really are an investment for years of wear and style. Highly recommended!

Vintage looking. I ordered the black and the toes are scuffed as if I'd owned them for awhile. If you are looking for a vintage looking boot then these are them. So glad I ordered a 1/2 size up. These boots run small. I am a true size 6 and these 6.5 fit right on. The circumference is narrow. Not sure if it is 16 or not but I know I would not be able to tuck my boot leg jeans into these. Only leggings or skinny jeans. Which is what I would wear these with anyway. I am 5'4 and 117 the shaft is perfect for this type of boot. They fall an inch or two below my knee. I had to stretch the heel/ankle part of the boot a bit bc they were rubbing on my ankle bone. Once I did they were perfect. These are boots you will have for a lifetime. Made really well. A must buy.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by stizzy1979 Beautiful boots, but not for muscular calves :(
These boots are absolutely gorgeous...the color, the leather, the feel, the smell, just overall beautiful & well made. Everything seems true to size to me with the exception of the shaft. They are described as having a 16" shaft. My calves are very muscular (15") & I can barely get the boots zipped all the way up. Once zipped, they are not comfortable because they are so tight. Debating whether to send them back, or try to stretch them/alter them to better fit. I am 5'6" & 140lbs, & they do fit very high on the calf, just below the bend of the knee.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by Robotrex gorgeous leather; small sizing
I was so disappointed when I got these boots! The colour is more of a natural brown than the gorgeous red depicted in the photo. And I couldn't even fit my foot into the boot, they were so small! And I'm definitely a 38 Euro boot size with most other companies.
The "distressing" looks like someone just took a knife to the boot at the end of production and gouged out some lines in the leather just above the heel. And the soles are completely black.
The leather itself is absolutely gorgeous though. You can smell, feel and touch the quality. I understand that natural leather can look different for each pair of boots, except I feel that what I received was fairly different than what is depicted in the photo.
I also ordered the socks in the picture, and although the packing slip says they are 100% cotton they definitely have wool in them! My sensitive skin was sad. This would have been a cute fall combo. Needless to say, I'm returning both the boots and socks.

I was super bummed that these boots' circumference was narrower than described. My calves are 14.75 and I couldn't zip them up all the way. They're going back. :(
