I bought these because of the simplicity of the design and how expensive they look for the price. I was very disappointed when they came in. Not only was the box completely torn up, the lid was ripped in half, but the shoes themselves were very cheap. In order to put them on, you need to unbuckle EVERY SINGLE clasp. They run very small along the bottom of your leg and top of your foot. I would expect that when I purchase something regardless of the price, they would come in a nice box. The shoes were literally not fully protected and sticking out of the box...
Needless to say, I'll be returning them.

The problem with these is the lack of a zipper entry, and a narrow footbed. Because there's no zipper, if you have an arch to your foot, you can't get the bridge of your foot past the foot opening. I have a slightly smaller foot that I was able to get a little bit past the foot opening, but my foot was too wide. These felt more narrow that a JC boot, and those run quite narrow. I've bought this particular brand once, and I do recall having to size up to get a good fit. The deal is even if I sized up, I'd still have issued with no zipper entry because of the high arch to my foot.

I'm surprised these weren't sold out! They are very comfy and great looking boots. I waited until they were on sale so definitely a great deal for the money. They look like an homage to Vivienne Westwood pirate boots which are far more pricey than these even at regular price. Two complaints which account for a 4 star rating instead of 5 star: calves can be a bit snug if you are more muscular in that area since the buckles do not adjust too far out and the boots have little grip so they are a bit slippery on waxed floors. Otherwise very awesome boots!

These just came in the mail. I am in love. The quality is just what I would expect from faryl robin, my other shoes from them are amazingly comfortable as well. I wanted these at full price but with our 70 degree winter this year, couldn't justify pulling the trigger. I put them on my Christmas list but at the sale price just scooped em for myself! The sole is leather on mine, another reviewer indicated they weren't. I usually go for a 9.5 in boots but the 9 fits well and I know there will be some give. I have a high instep but the adjustable strap across the foot relieves that problem. Generally havea tough time finding boots that fit the calf but again the straps solve this problem, on a few I even havean extra hole or two. Can't take em off, I love them too much!! Probably getting the lack ones too. The taupe is a lighter brown than I hoped but the rose gold buckles and fit make up or that. So.. True to size, incredibly comfortable, thin genuine leather sole, great quality, amazing price, maybe not really practical for places with really cold, wet winters. Absolutely recommend, only after I order black. :)

I just received my boots (in Taupe) today. As answered in questions they are not brown as shown online. Thanks to the person who answered the question ! These do run a bit narrow across the widest part of your foot. I do not have any issues with the calf being too tight,they have a lot of adjustable room .I have worn them on the carpet for an hour with thin socks and believe they will give some,as they are leather. The soles are leather too,at least on mine. One reveiw stated otherwise.If you are between sizes I recommend going up,unless you have narrow feet. Hope I have helped since the day before I received the boots they were reduced an additional thirty dollars. I would have ordered the dress I wanted too..

I love my boots. I had to return the first order because they where to small. I always wear 8 or 81/2 but this time it did'nt fit. I ordered a 9 and it's OK. I'm from Canada
so I had to pay a big amount for the return(ouch!!!), but because they where in sale, it was a good deal. I love every thing from these boots. They fit perfectly, aren't too big on my calves like most boots are on. Thank you FP!

I've been wanting these boots since the second they came out, but I wasn't able to afford them at full price. As soon as they went on sale i ordered them in a size 9, normally I'm an 8 1/2 but since these don't come in half sizes I ordered the 9. I received them in the mail today and they are amazing, I have them on right now and i never want to take them off. I saw them in my local free people store when they first came out so I already knew what they look like....exactly how they do online. They fit perfectly, aren't too big on my calves like most boots are on me. Yes, they are a bit of a pain to put on, but it's DEFINITELY worth it.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by deerheart cute boots not impressed with quality
decided to order these when they went on sale. They are supercute, look just like the images and fit true to size. Im a size 6 and the 6 fits with insole and a sock. Not to sure about the quality of these, the soles are really really thin, synthetic, not leather as indicated in the description. i think and there would not be anything for my cobbler to add a thicker sole to, rendering the boot an indoor boot for the rain snow slushy season that is upon us here on the NE coast a major part of the year. I think that for this much money you are better off with a high quality boot like HTC. Also, being petite, i dont want to add too much visual bulk to my legs, and the straps stick out a bit, so back they go. they'd look very cute with the voile trapaze slip
