Style: 36805109 Color Code:
Italian leather ankle boots with a block heel and facing side zips for easy on/off. Strapping detail with adjustable buckle at topline.
Tight around the ankles
Boots are pretty but returned because when fully zipped up they are tight around the ankles. Even half zipped they were uncomfortable. Could only see wearing these with skinny jeans?
Love at first sight
I fell in love with the boos as soon as I found them here. I love AS98's distinctive designs and craftsmanship. Love their out soles also - I am not sure but it's leather sole with rubber coating? And a miracle happened - I (Canadian resident) wasn't charged Duty/Customs/GST upon delivery at all! I was ready for the worst - something like C$130.00...so happy I didn't have to pay extra. The boots are gorgeous, not to mention. Other than that, the leather is a bit less glossy than FP pictures. The ankle is fitted but not tight like uncomfortable way and I have average ankle, not skinny one - pls see pics uploaded here. The ankle belt is adjustable. For reference, my lower calf is 23.5cm/9.25 inches, ankle 19.5cm/7.75 inches. Sizing is TTS, a bit generous TTS. I am 24.5cm JPN, 8.5US, normally buy US9 boots and I did buy US9 and fit great withe a little room in the toe. My other AS98 boots also have this feature - the wire is bedded at the top part of the boots. So cool, so comfy, worth every $$$. FP's shoes (especially boos) selection is stellar!!
I'm a 9 1/2 and I ordered these in size 40 and they fit great! I can wear a decent sock and they aren't too tight. They are also really comfortable, however, the ankle part is SO tight. I had to loosen the straps quite a bit so now they aren't as fitted around the ankle. (and I think my ankles are pretty thin). The leather is great quality. They are definitely very round in the toe area and don't look as narrow as in the picture. Overall, I'm happy with them and they look cute with dresses.
