Rated 3 out of 5Â by artsy43 It's the Old Old West
I loved these boots online! Loved the look, however a head's up: forget sneaking up on anyone. If you've ever watched a western and heard the spurs on cowboy boots clanking as they walked down the street, then you've heard these boots. No joke. Seriously like wearing jingle bells. Loud jingle bells.
Also, I think these run about a 1/2 size too small. I just bought, oh....3-4 pairs of boots, all the same size, from different designers, and these were snug in length...and I have a skinny foot. That part was fine.
These are going back. Poo.

I absolutely LOVE these boots! They have the perfect tomboy look! :) Two cons: I ordered these in Charcoal, but they arrived lighter than pictured. And like all the reviewers have said, these boots are LOUD! When I wore them out for the first time, some little girl pointed me out to her mom and said I had Christmas boots on! (Thank God it's the holiday season.) My solution was to fill half of the gap with hot glue from underneath. It definitely helped minimize the jingling. I just love the aesthetic and ergonomics of the boots so much that it's just worth having. They pair well with almost everything in my closet and fit comfortably true to size.

i got this in the terra cotta, and the color is more orangish clay than red. i'm always a US8 and got the 39Euro (from many experiences of ordering 38Euro from UO which is too tight), and they fit just fine. i can slide my feet in and out with ease, and the shoe part fits just perfect. The bottom is very smooth, and is slippery on even carpet, so i'm skeptical about wearing them out in the snow. and now, the jingling. the noise they make with each step is pretty ridiculous. i had to stuff each metal tube of the buckles with tissue to stop the noise, and at least that did work for the most part. a little on the expensive side, but i do like the color and the worn-in (i.e. distressed, patchy) look. a good first attempt for fp shoes, but could use more practicality.

I feel like a Shriner in these boots. Can't figure out why they designed the buckles to be so noisy. They are so cute and comfortable I am keeping them but trying to figure out what to do about the noise. I wrapped fabric around one end of the buckle and it made them look kinda edgy but still had noise coming from other end of buckle so I used a toothpick and shoved fabric down the middle of the ring on the buckle so it can't move around. I think it is going to work and better than glue as other reviewer suggested.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by JojoCoCoRico Am I wearing spurs?
These are the most noisy boots I've ever had in my life. I sound like I am wearing spurs with every step! These boots would be the perfect slouchy boot if they were about 1-2 inches shorter...they are just slightly too tall...and the noise. They were also damaged when I received them....quite a few chips and dings. They also were quite small...I'm a true 39 and I had to really squeeze them on. Sadly returning. My search for the perfect slouchy boho boot continues...
Rated 4 out of 5Â by Starshine perfectly worn but jingly
I have a wide foot and even though they look narrow toward the front toe area they fit nicely. I think after wearing them a few times the suede will stretch out perfectly. I ordered the brown and they look just like the pics with some darker brown areas near the toe. The bottoms make them a bit slippery but I think once they get scuffed up they should be better, or just take them to my shoe guy to put something with a little grip on the bottom. I love the look and the fit is really pretty good so I'm keeping them but WHOA the jingling!!! I mean they really make a lot of noise. My husband thought I was playing with jingle bells (seriously). The jingle is caused from the round parts on the buckles(the little round tubes on each vertical side of the square part). They move around when walking and cause the noise. I'm wondering if I can glue them to the square part and they might be quieter. So as long as you don't mind jingling all the way I'd recommend these!
Rated 5 out of 5Â by linad Great boot basic!
When I received these in the mail, I wasn't too convinced that the ankle would fit slightly oversized while remaining structured, as they do on the model in the picture. BUT once I got those babies on, they fit just as pictured! They do fit a tad snug on the roof of the foot, but I think with a little wear they will stretch out. My only complaint (and this is a silly one) is that the buckles jingle a LOT when you walk around in them. Other than that, I am super happy with them. As your first attempt at shoes, great job FP!!
