These boots are so cute and they have been in my basket online for a while but I wasn't sure what size, what color, so I didn't order them. Today when I went into the FP store near me they happened to have this boot in my size, 39 (US size 9), so I tried it on. I am usually a size 8-1/2 but if shoes don't run in 1/2 sizes I go up to a 9 and it usually fits. I have a narrow foot, but even so I had a hard time getting my foot in the shoe. Once in the boot though the length and width were perfect for me and I could feel it stretching and becoming more comfortable as I wore it.. I would recommend going up at least a 1/2 size or a full size since these run small. I'm assuming the color I got was charcoal, but it doesn't look as dark as the boot shown in charcoal online and is more of a dark grey. I love the casual slouchy look of this boot and once on it is very comfortable.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by lisafmd Going to order a second pair!
I wear a 9 in regular shoes, a 10 in boots because I like a little room. I ordered a 10 in these and they are perfect. I know that a lot of reviewers have said they are way too small, and that they make jingling noises, but mine are the right fit and don't make any sounds. I waited a long time to order them because so many of the reviews were bad. I have all sorts of problems with my feet, I get blisters and the soles of my feet hurt a lot if there isn't enough cushioning, so I'm very picky about what I buy. I put these on and right out of the box they feel great. I have a part time retail job where I am on my feet for 8 or 9 hours, and these even work for me at the job. I saw the blush and the tan ones at a Free People store in NYC, as well as the black. There really seems to not be a very big difference between the blush and the tan. And the black is more of a washed charcoal gray. So the colors might be a bit off. But I think I'm going to get a second pair, I like them THAT much. I think they are well made and worth the price. The height of the boot and slouchiness works really well with skinny jeans and with maxi dresses
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Sofia33 Jingle practically gone now!
I ordered these boots in January 2013. I didn't actually try them on until March because of a hectic quarter at school. I'm almost always a size 7.5 in shoes but the 38 was far too snug (too much pressure on my heal and toes - the leather is stiffer than expected). I exchanged them for a size 39 and they fit great and with enough room to loosen with wear. INTERESTING FACT, the jingle on the size 38 was out of control, just like all the previous reviewers say. However, the jingle is practically gone now. I looked at the buckles and the difference is in the shape of the metal tubes. The 38s had loose circular tubes but my new 39s have 'D' shaped tubes that are tight against the buckle. There are occasional dingy dings but normal for buckles. Pretty cool. My guess is FP made changes as a result of customer feedback. So, if you were on the fence because of the jingle, you may very well be in luck:) My love affair with these boots has finally come to fruition and I'm so excited. Thanks FP!!
Rated 3 out of 5Â by junet colour discrepancy and jingle all the way
full of expectation on getting the charcoal boots but disappointed when receiving it. the colour is totally different from the pic on web. also, it is a bit tight when putting it on. lucky i get narrow feet. if you hv wide feet, please size up in no doubt. the style and shape are good. the fabric is perfect but still cant offset the colour discrepancy!! it is misleading. this is the 3rd times i found colour difference on freepeople website. also, the buckles jingling all the way while walking or even a tiny move; some will like but some will feel annoying.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by erin_osullivan In love with these boots!
I've eyed these off for nearly 6 months now and I took the plunge and bought them. I'm in Australia, so it was an anxious wait. I've just received them and they're awesome. I did question whether they had actually been worn before me, but then I remembered that they're meant to look that way anyway! The sole is in perfect condition so i know they haven't been worn before me. I took the advice of many reviews and went a size up to a 39. I have pretty narrow feet and don't seem to have fitting issues and these fit well on me, with a little bit of extra room so I'd definitely recommend going a size up, if I'd bought my regular 38 I don't think they'd have fit.
The only criticism I'd say is that I've had a pair of boots with a similar sole to these and when they get worn out it needs to be replaced, they're the kind that can be a bit slippy, and not the best quality (my shoe guy told me this). But these are so beautiful that I don't even care, I'll do it when if that time comes! These will be perfect for winter in Sydney.
And the jangle is pretty slight on mine, maybe it gets louder as they get more worn in. I like the idea of a jangly boot anyway! Thanks for making my first FP experience a good one :)
Rated 4 out of 5Â by whitewindowstudios Lovely but loud
I love the look of these boots, but I had to use pliers and remove some metal from the front and back of the buckles or else I sounded like I was wearing spurs. They are very loud as is, but without the round moveable metal, I am super happy with my purchase and they fit perfectly true to size.

This boot fits a little small, a half size up was perfect. The suede is great and they are very comfortable. The only thing to note, is they do jingle when you walk...lets just say everyone will know you are coming when you wear them.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Britt13 I love these boots!
I have been searching for the perfect slouchy suede boot for almost two years and finally found them! The charcoal color online looks almost black but they are a dark grey like the color description says. Great weathered, worn in look. I'm a size 7 is most shoes and I got a 37. The first time i put them on i could barely squeeze my foot into them. It was really tight at the heel/ankle area. I thought i would have to return them but i walked around the house for a few minutes and i could already feel them stretching out so i decide to keep them. I wore them out one evening and now they fit perfectly. if you are in between sizes then i would order up since they are snug and you could wear thicker socks if they are a little big. Like everyone has said, they do jingle a lot! To fix this I used a hot glue gun and put a dot of glue at the bottom of each medal tube on the buckles, i tried to get it inside the end of the tubes. This worked perfectly! They no longer jingle. I love my new boots! :)
