Style: 38311098 Colour:
Slightly distressed over-the-knee boots featuring a rugged leather fabrication and a lived-in aesthetic. Exposed back zip and adjustable buckle detailing for easy on/off.
These boots are very comfy and very cool; however, they run snug in the calf. I bought them in the store so I tried my usual Suze 8 and couldn't get them zipped above my ankle! The saleswoman told me many had the same problem. My legs aren't large, so I sized up to an 8.5, and they were fine! They also stretch after wearing, so that helps. I have them in tan, and I really love them! Great buy!
After reading other reviews to go up a size, and not having the option to because they were sold out in that size, I am so glad I didn't! Yes, the boots are pretty snug on the calves but if you look at the pictures that is the style of the boot! It will be a daily struggle to get these on and off but I cannot say enough about the beautiful quality and look of these shoes! Pricey and a bit difficult but so worth it! for reference, I am 5'6'' 140lbs and have medium/ athletic calves. My shoe size ranges from 7.5 (in heels usually) and 8 in boots. Got the Euro size 38
Did I get a lemon?
I ordered these boots in a 38, as I have always worn a 38 in free people & birkenstocks. Upon taking them out of the box and attempting to try them on, I could not get the zipper down. After struggling with it for some time I finally got the zipper down only to find out they ran a little small and I would need a 39 anyway. I haven't decided if I want to exchange them for a 39 or not due to the zipper being so bad however I have thin legs and was excited to discover these were snug even on my skinny legs. I would not recommend them if you have muscular legs.
