Tight boot shaft!
I was really looking forward to this boot. It looked fashionable and comfortable. After reading the reviews I sized up. I am a 6.5 in shoes and sized up to the 7. Unfortunately I found that though they fit okay in the foot area, the boot shaft was too tight. I have really skinny legs with no real calve muscles (for ref: 5'3" about 105lbs.) so I thought I would be okay, but I really couldn't make them work. These were not flattering on me. I felt like if I sized up to the 8, they would've been too big in the foot area. The boot itself is really nice with great details and soft leather. If you can make them work, go for it. But I would try one or two sizes up to see which works best. I'm taking away 2 stars due to the wonky sizing.
pretty but painful
These boots are pretty, though a lighter, brighter purple than the "cordovan" pictured. I have worn them once, and they are true to size and fit me, but they one of the most painful pair of boots or shoes I have ever worn. It isn't a breaking-in issue; they have no support/cushion in the insole so the ball of the foot jams down onto a hard footbed. I have comparable heels that are comfortable because of better insole construction. Unfortunately, I cannot wear these again. Very disappointing.
Disappointed with the color
I ordered the cordovan color based on the photo which seems to me a reddish/brownish color. They turned out to be purple with a slightly reddish hue. The color is nice but it sort of limits what I can wear them with and I would not have chosen this color had I known. I wish I had ordered the black but now it's too late since I've already worn them. I was so excited about them and I didn't really notice how purplish they were until I was out the door and in the sunshine. Whatever, that's why I gave them four stars. As far as the style and fit they are perfect and are very comfortable. I wear a 38 or 39 and these are a 38 and they're fine. The size seems true to size and are just right for my wide feet. A 39 would probably be better so i could wear my thick boot socks with them. As it is I wear thinner cashmere socks and it's fine. I don't have thick or skinny calves and they pull up over skinny jeans with ease but they even work with looser jeans, it's just a bit more difficult to pull them up. So despite the strange color I do love them anyways, I just wish I had ordered them in black or better yet they were the color that's shown in the photo.
Fantastic craftsmanship and fiit
The only reason I'm not giving these beauties 5 stars is that I thought I was splurging on a pair of funky golden yellow or at least yellowish boots. I realize dye lots vary, but mine definitely has never even said hello to yellow. It *is* a beautiful color - mellow, nuanced, with gorgeous burnished accents - but if you're looking for a look-at-me accent, this isn't it. The fit is a tad on a small size: I'm a US 10.5, sometimes 10, and the 41 I ordered fits just right with just trouser socks. If you're an 11, the 41 would probably be tight. Also, my feet are on the narrow side and the width of these feels just right. I can't say enough great things about the quality of the leather. I've always loved Spanish-made boots, but these really take the cake: the leather is soft and supple to the touch, and drapes around the leg with just a hint of a slouch. They are roomy. I'm 5'11" and skinny, but have a runner's calves, and still the boot doesn't hug my leg till down around the ankle. Again, this allows for kind of a relaxed slouch, yet the boot is firm enough that it stays up over the knee for a casual fit that shows off the softness of the leather.
STOP. BUY THESE.
I LOVE LOVE these boots. I bought them in the desert color and I think they look even better in person. I would say I have average calves (def. not skinny, def not thick, but athletic). They can be pulled up over the knee or pushed for a slouchy look which helps balance out my curvier body. I am a solid size 9, and typically go with a euro 39 but got a 40 in these and they fit great. I think 39 may have worked as well they just would have taken some breaking in. Can't wait to wear these erry'day. xo
Practically Perfect in Every Way***
I've been looking for a quality over the knee look for over a year now, and when I saw these I fell in love. I wanted one in every color, but decided black was the safest choice. I was worried how the sleeve of the leg would fit, because in the picture it looks almost baggy, but I was pleasantly surprised, at how perfect the fit was! I only rated it that it fits a little bit tight, because I am a smaller than average person, so what might fit me may not work for most. I haven't gotten to wear them much, but I am so satisfied with the look, I wanted to share how happy I am! Can't wait to step out in them! <3
These boots arrived last week and I've worn them twice already. I ordered them in black and they fit like a glove, both sexy and very flattering on. The foot bed is true to size, but they are more fitted on me in the leg than they appear on the model, although I'm a curvy girl. The quality is amazing and the feel of the leather is very soft. They're brand new, but I have been impressed with their comfort during the break in phase.
I was really disappointed when these showed up. I never had a problem with free people boots until now. Unless you have legs like the model in the picture, I wouldn't recommend. Jeffrey Campbell Joe Lace Up Boot fit me perfectly and these were twice as small.
I ordered these boots in the yellowish color (size 38), which to my delight was more like the vibrant yellow shown in the street shot and not like in the studio photos where it appears to be washed out and more of a tan than a gold. These boots are soft and cozy and are fitted enough that they don't slouch down around my ankles throughout the day but not uncomfortably tight either. I love the heal strap and the stitching details as well. These boots are great!
