Long description here.
These boots are unique and very well made. The chunky heel is perfect for the boho style but they are still work appropriate. I am always a size 8 and I ordered the 39. According to free people's size conversion chart a size 39 is an 8.5/9, but I looked up an alternative size chart and it listed 39 as an 8. The sole fits perfectly, but I rated the boot as running small because they are very hard to get on because of the black fabric backing. I have very slim calves and it's even hard. If you have larger calves I wouldn't recommend these boots. But other than that they are perfect!! Great purchase.
I've got two pairs of these: Black in EU40 and Tan in EU39. I'm usually a EU39/UK6 but thought I'd size up due to what other reviewers had said. The 40's arrived and even though they are a touch too big, they were so easy to get on and off and felt so comfortable that I kept them. The heel height is great and I can wear these all day without getting sore feet. They look great with skinny jeans or skirts.Then a pair in Tan in size 39 came up for sale and I couldn't resist. They take a little more time to get on and off but are true to size and I suspect will need a little more breaking in (I haven't worn them yet, I'm waiting for Spring). Both pairs are fab, well made boots and I love them both to bits.
For tall girls!
I'm tall and I am so in love with these boots! They actually are great b/c they stay up! I just love the brown and the grey colors. The Tan one was not my cup of tea. Grab these, looks like they are almost gone for a reason! I'm a true 9.5 and the 40 fit me perfectly. MTNG is one of my favorite brands, super excited about my new boots!
These boots are lovely! I found them to be true to size...I always wear a 37. Yes they are hard to get on but that means they stay up! The leather looks slightly worn so it's not a true black. They are comfortable as well!
Wanted to love them...
For reference, I am a size 7.5/8 and ordered a size 39 which fit my foot with some room to spare and the boot reaches just right above my knee (I am 5'3) . The shoe took a lot of effort to put on and take off because the elastic had minimal stretch. Not many in the reviews mentioned this, but there was some bunching of leather near the ankles also. Overall, the shoe is good quality and the elastic is a thick neoprene-like material. I do not recommend this shoe for anyone with thicker calves (my calves measure a tad less than 15 inches). I was hoping my search for the perfect OTK black boot was over but, I will sadly be returning.
Cute-But a Smidge of A Struggle
I read the previous reviews and kept in mind that these don't exactly stretch to fit all types of calves. I never have had an issue with boots not fitting because of my calves, but these are the first. I absolutely love these boots, but it definitely took a while to put them on; however once they were on, they stayed on haha. Now its not THAT much of a struggle for me to put on that I would return it. I'm hoping that by wearing them more often they sort of give out a bit and wont need a serious session to put these on. But for the first couple wears I will only be able to wear them with legings or tights...hopefully i can slowly transition to skinny jeans.
Do Not Buy Larger Size!
I purchased the boots before reading through the reviews. I ordered them in my exact size (UK 6/EU39) and after reading the reviews I was so worried that they were going to be too small and I almost cancelled my order to reorder a larger size. However, I decided to stick with my original order, as there is nothing more annoying than boots that don't fit your calf properly. They arrived a few days ago and they are perfect! Definitely not at all too small and I can get my foot into them no problem. I am so pleased I didn't cancel my order now, because even one size up would be too large. I am not for a second saying that other reviewers aren't skinny or anything like that, everyone has a different body shape and size. I'm quite tall and have long slender legs and calves and would recommend not going a size larger if you have a similar shape.
After years and years of searching for the perfect OTK boots, my search is over! It's been difficult to find OTK boots that don't ruche too much or fall down or just look weird for my height. The elastic that everyone mentions is reminiscent of the elastic Steve Madden slides from the 90s so it is pretty strong but I think without it, the shape of the boot would suffer. It maintains a fitted yet worn-in look and I can wear it alone or over skinnys or knee socks. For reference, I am 5'2" and the widest part of my calf measures at 12.5 inches. I am usually a 6.5 but after reading the reviews, I went up to a size EURO 37 and they were a perfect fit.
Boots from heaven
I never leave reviews, but these boots are worth the time! I have been on the hunt for tall comfortable boots FOREVER! These are it! I usually wear a size 7 1/2 and I got the size 39 in these. I originally ordered the 38 but couldn't get my foot in. Totally worth the price, I want every color.
SIZE UP AND ENJOY PERFECTION !
These boots are awesome no doubt about it! But why the 4 stars? First of all, you definitely need to size up a whole size (I m always a EU 39 and needed all the space a 40 could give me)! Fortunately i had read all the existing reviews before purchasing these! The shoes go really nice with everything i have tried on and the pleasant surprise was that I found some alternative ways to wear them as well. If you turn to the inside the part that covers your knee, it can be worn as below-knee, high boot that looks great for working environment etc. Also, i discovered that, trying to get the boot off my feet, the interior suede lining looks great as well, so I turned the boot inside out and looks like tall booties! Just so stylish! The leather is soft and comfy and they are really comfortable to wear, just the kind of boot you can walk around all day and night!! One thing though, the colour black that i got doesn't look as black as in the pictures on line, it is more of an off black! And the heel is not wooden as it looks on the pics but the kind of strong rubber. Last but not least, about the fitting problem others referred to! I didn't have a problem getting these on and off BUT, the boots are definitely not spacey and with tight jeans i m not sure they would go all the way up if you have wide calves. I understand why some people may have this problem but it didn't happen to me and i m not exactly very thin! Nevertheless, they really look like a pair that will last for some years, adding a lot to my wardrobe!!
