First off, these boots are gorgeous. As I was perusing the site, these boots caught my eye and was happy to find out that fp had only one size left of size 7. I quickly grabbed them! Initially I already had intentions to try to get these boots all wrinkly just like the model photo, since all the photos ive seen shows the boots standing up. To my delight, upon opening from the box- the shoes already came out all wrinkled! Which I definitely loved, but I was just pleasantly surprised. In terms of style, they can be worn with anything! In terms of sizing, I am a normal size 7 and ordered a size 7 for these. They initially were a little tight, but after a couple of struts- they loosened up and molded around my feet. Perfect!
love them to bits
I love these. But I do have a 7.5 Narrow foot (so narrow I have to get narrow sized soccer cleats, ballet slippers, and running shoes) and I have fairly flat feet. I actually sized down and they are still a perfect fit on me. In store the size 8 was too big - way too much room from side to side. The 7 was a perfect fit. If you have narrow small feet these will be perfect. I'm happy to finally own a boot that fits me right on the sides - it is not too wide at all!
Luv, luv, luv them in Chocolate, slouchy and distressed like the pic,true to size, sooooooo comfortable - took them out of the box jumped on my Harley and went on a 1,000 mile trip receiving compliments along the way. Thanks to Free People for the wonderful service and thanks, Steve for the "hot" boots!
Boots do not fit at all!!!
I usually wear a 7.5 size boot, so I ordered a size 8 thinking they would fit great with thick sock for winter. Well when the size 8 arrived I literally could not even get my foot into the boot al all, let alone enough to even attempt to zip up the back. So I ordered a size 9 and shipped these back, when the size 9 arrived they also did not fit at all! I could at least get my feet into the boots but over the top of my foot was so tight on both left and right boots that I could not even leave on long enough to attempt to try to break in. DO NOT order these online, I would highly suggest trying on in person, I ended up spending over $30 to return both pairs when I consistently fit into every other pair of shoes or boots I have ever bought online!
I'm never taking them off!
I love these boots! I have narrow feet so I bought them my size (6). They are true to size but they were tight. I had to submerge them in water for 10 minutes then stretch them for 48 hours. Now I can literally walk into them and keep going. If you decide to do what I did, make sure to use a lotion for leather. They don't slouch like on the advertisement. Perhaps in time they might.
Very cool, runs very small.
Just got these in chocolate color. They are very cool. They are heavily distressed as pictured but less slouchy than pictured. Comfortable right out of the box BUT...they definitely run small and narrow. I am an 8-8.5 with a fairly narrow foot. I purchased a 9 and they are a little snug with a sock but are fine and I think will stretch out enough for a heavier sock come winter. Order a size up and enjoy these boots!
Lovin my boots
I found these run a little bit small. I wear thin socks with them otherwise they'd be snug on my feet. I always wear 8 in shoes/boots with Free people. I purchased them in black. The leather is distressed (which I love,) and a little stiffer than other boots I've purchased from FP. I really like all the buckles and strap detailing on these!
Tan Drazen Boot
Purchased boot in tan - beautiful (almost cognac color). Very distressed - which I love - but also a nice classic look. Fits true to size. I usually wear 8 1/2 and ordered a 9. Fit comfortably with average to thick sock. I have average to large/muscular calves and I have plenty of room for leggings and jeans. Probably my best boot purchase ever (and I have a lot of boots)!! :-)
Beautiful Boot but Too Narrow!!
These boots are amazing to look at! I bought the tan and they have just arrived to me in Melbourne, Australia and am devastated. Although the length is perfect (and I wouldn't want to size up as they would look too long) they are ridiculously narrow. I am going to try and have them stretched out as it is not worth the return post to the States and see how I go. Sad Panda :(
