Modern and sartorial styles, artisan crafted from fine leathers and premium materials, FP Collection shoes are coveted for their signature cutting-edge aesthetic.
I ususally wear between a 6 and 7 shoe size, so I bought a 7 in these. When I first got them, they were a little snug, which worried me. But after a couple of days of wearing them around the house they've molded perfectly to my feet. Seriously, I love these shoes so much I dreamed about them. (I might have a problem) Honestly, they are one of the most comfortable shoes, and The most comfortable boots, I own. I bought the navy and the color is the same as in the pics. They are more than I'm used to spending on non utilitarian shoes, but they were 100% worth the money.
Cute but rather stiff and uncomfortable
I splurged and bought these boots for myself about a year ago after falling in love with them. When I initially tried them on, there appeared to be no problem, however only 10 minutes in to wearing them for the first time they really began to hurt my feet. Even while sitting, these boots did not feel right and left me with rather large blisters on the backs of both of my ankles. I recently tried them on again, hoping perhaps that I had exaggerated my discomfort I felt when I first wore them, and unfortunately they are still incredibly stiff. Perhaps I need to figure out a way to break them in, but I would make sure you absolutely love the way these boots fit before buying them.
I love the Braeburns! I ordered the red, olive and another color. They are very narrow. Usually I wear a 39 or 40- with these I needed a size 41. They look cool with everything and I could walk for days in them. Such a charming shoe. The washed leather feels like an old friend. You'll want more than one pair because of the beguiling color palette.
Colour not remotely like the photos.
I ordered black, and the box indicated that they were indeed black, however they look much more like the photos for the grey. Luckily I still really like them. The biggest disappointment is that I wanted a pair of black ankle boots. The all leather makes me think the soles won't last long. Pros: Really cute leather boots. Cons: Colour not at all accurate; and leather soles probably won't last.
These boots were a huge disappointment. Yes, they are so cute. Yes, they run true to size, which helps. Yes, I loved the color. They seemed perfect -- initially. However, I have had them just shy of 6 months and the heal is flaking off, and a hole is already developing on the sole, and inside is wearing away. I expected such higher quality. It's not even like I wear them everyday. They are a big disappointment and should only be expected to last about 4 months before they start slowly falling apart.

Love these boots - have 2 pairs!
I have these in the taupe and tobacco color. I ordered the taupe when they first came out - almost 2 years ago - they fit perfectly. I ordered the tobacco ones last year and had the same problem that someone else mentioned - the right foot was almost stretched out around the ankle. FP sent me replacement pairs TWICE before I got a pair that fit properly. I am tempted to buy the black ones because I wear these shoes ALL OF THE TIME and love them - I am just hoping that the quality/sizing issues have been cleared up. I get TONS of compliments on these boots - FP was awesome about doing the exchange/return - so I'm confident if I order another pair it will work out fine. I am a small size 6 - sometimes I wear a 5.5 (USA) and the 36 fits fine. I get blisters in ANY shoes that I wear the first time or 2 and got minimal blisters in these shoes and wore them to work twice standing / walking for at least 5-6 hours)
Great Boots, Just What I Was Looking For
I was a little nervous about these boots because they are a little different than what I usually wear. I have been searching for a pair of booties for the spring season that can go with a variety of outfits but be comfortable for all day wear. And these boots are it! They are comfortable and the slightly distressed look can be dressed up or down. I bought the taupe color and they go with basically any outfit. I recommend!!
I'm an 8.5 in everything and between 39 and 40 in EU (usually close to 40) but 8.5/39 in these fit me fine. It's a tight fit but that also prevents the shoes from moving around when I'm walking, which I like. I got these in the tan color, which is really brown enough to be the color that fits everything (I remember seeing other people commenting that the tobacco color is way too orange). Not the most comfortable shoes ever, but no intense scuffing as well. Worth it for the style!
