Rated 3 out of 5Â by emerald_city Curvy calves & Aussie buyers beware!
So i returned these even after waiting weeks for them and hyping them up in my head...but iit was always a long shot that they would suit me. Ideally I should have got an 8 or 8.5 - but since they were sold out I hedged my bets on the 9 thinking that I could just wear thick socks like other reviewers suggested. Turns out they fit ok on the toe but the ankle and inner arch area was really bulgy - not sure if this was just a design fault or what. I would stick to your normal sizing to be safe. Apart from that the fit was fine. The deal breaker is that they do not look right on curved calves like mine, i don't have overly muscular calves, but combined with the fact that i have short legs it just wasn't a good look. Many other reviewers halve said it - long, lean, calves are what you need to pull these off. Also wasn't too happy about the brown/black combo - I would have preferred black if it was available. Also AUSSIE buyers NOTE that they do not even partly reimburse return shipping if you want to return these! This was not clear to me AT ALL before i purchased, and i wouldn't have done so if I had known. Not only is there a $9 surcharge for posting to the US, but because of the weight, the shipping cost is ridiculous. Unless you are 100% sure about your purchase, I wouldn't risk it, it could be a costly error if you are disappointed like me!

I absolutely adore these boots, and I am so glad that I got them as a Birthday present! These boots are perfect for my "skinny leg problem." If your thinking about buying them but are iffy because of the price, just buy them because you won't regret it.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Freepeople rockstar Amazing- size up.
I am normally a size 8-8.5, but i followed some of the other reviews and sized up to the 9, and they fit perfect. The quality is amazing. I am 5'10 and the boots hit right above the knee, perfect. I have the brown/black combo. They are comfortable and amazing, and they look just like the picture. BUY!
Rated 4 out of 5Â by nympheya beautiful boots, but....
I really wanted these boots for a long time, now they're mine, beautiful, expensive price is not justified, the quality of the skin is not the best, the insole is glued bad, and wrinkled, so it hurts to walk.

I just got my first pair in the mail and they exceeded my expectations! I love them so much I just bought a second pair in another color! Well worth it.
I was super nervous about the sizing since I'm a six and a half, so if you're unsure if you should size up or down... SIZE DOWN! They fit perfect.

This boot has been on my FP wish list for a couple of months now. I just got them today and I'm still smiling about how great the look on. I tried these on when I got home after working 8 hrs in heels and didn't even notice my feet were aching anymore. I'm 5'5'' and 126 llbs. These hit just above the knee on me and I can wrap the strings around the top of mine just like the model.
A quick note the worn in, scratched up look in the photo is more apparent in person. I enjoy it but if you're expecting perfect spotless leather don't torture yourself.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by naturespace So Happy I Made the Purchase
I read all the reviews, all 96, at the time I decided to buy these. I bought the blue combo and am very impressed with them. They fit great. I have thicker carves so was a bit worried they would not fit. But the laces accommodate. I am happy they look fabulous The zip does look flimsy, I hope it survives the wear I will be giving to my first JC's.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by buzzlightyear taupe confusion
got the boots some months back and they are gorg. mind you 'short people' you may have to fold the top of boot down a little since it may go over your knees. its great regardless.
one thing is that the taupe colour is lighter than the pics on here in person. i was surprised by that (though the taupe would resemble a dark shade of brown).
people fussing about the quality of the leather are being a bit dramatic. it's good!
