Great pair of boots!
on 24 February 2009
I first saw these a few months ago, but after buying (and loving) my Fly Midas, I waited and hoped the price would come down! I bought the black patent, and they are beautiful - I'm just going to have to show restraint not to buy another pair in another colour.
These boots are soooo comfortable. They seem to be very well made, and don't rub anywhere (on me, at least). As soon as I bought them, I went shopping in them - when I got home, I still didn't want to take them off. I used to live in high heels, but have got out of the habit of wearing them on a regular basis - but, I know I could wear these all day with no ill effect :-)
Over the years, I've found wedges to be the only heels I can comfortably drive in, and the shape of the heels on these boots is perfect if you're spending time behind the wheel.
Size wise, I've always taken an 8/41 (I know some companies seem to have moved the sizes around slightly, and now seem to consider an 8 to be a 42), and these are almost a perfect fit. Height wise (on me) they are somewhere between calf and knee length - I say this as I think they look slightly higher on some of the pictures. I like Fly boots as they come up narrower on the calf than many other brands. At their widest, my lower leg is about 35 cm, and it's about right for these. They are slightly adjustable, but I don't know by how much.
I think these boots would have been decent value at full price, but at half price, they are an absolute steal!!
