BEST BOOTS EVER!
I am so lucky to get these - once sold out, probably someone returned them. Beautiful, cool, well made one of the best boots I have ever purchased. So happy happy happy about my purchase at the sale price!!!! My first AS98 boots, looking forward to getting more AS98 boots.
Comfy but clunky
This AS98 boot is surprisingly light weight so very nice to wear, runs roomy in the foot. I have slender feet! The inner shaft is nice and tight for skinny legs, beware more muscular ladies, it is hard to get on!!!! The outer shaft adornment is unpredictably wide, as is the braid like adornment that crosses the front. I ordered the black and brown, and there was quite a difference in the styling. Colors are great by the way. My US9, Euro40, was quite roomy, and if I had liked the boot would have ordered a 39 to compare. Alas, the boot is so clunky, biggish and kinda mannish looking that I send it back. The quality is superb, the styling is not my cup of tea.
I just received these lovely boots in the mail today. Brown was my color of choice and I couldn't be more pleased with the look and craftsmanship. I am a size 7.5 and decided to try the 38. They are roomy but not too big (basically just right). I have skinny legs and they look fab, not too big around the calf. However, they are a little difficult to get on. These aren't your every day just quick throw on boots and do take some effort to slip into (kind of like trying to put your feet through skinny jeans). My hope is that they wear in a bit and become easier to adorn. I would buy these in black as well if I had unlimited funds, def worth the money. Very happy with my purchase.
These are beautifully crafted boots, and fit true to size with just enough give to wear with or without socks. I liked they didn't look goofy on my skinny legs as slouchy boots can sometimes do. Given the price (!!!), I was doubly pleased I could wear it with most of my wardrobe- very chic with jeans and cute with dresses. The leather is a little stiff which allows you to 'mould' the folds to your liking, but I'm sure it'll soften a bit more with time and become extra comfy. I'm giving it 4 stars because one of the leather straps on the front is too long, so it kind of sticks out the side awkward.. I'll have to take it to a boot maker to cut it shorter which will cost more! Otherwise I am a happy camper.
