Great boots - apart from fit around ankle!
on 17 January 2015
I'm writing this review after being completely confused by conflicting reviews about sizing - an important aspect when ordering online.
I ordered my usual size 5, even though the reviews tempted me to go up a size, especially as I have rather wide feet. Now the size is perfect - my feet slip in easily and comfortably and a bigger size would have been too big. I imagine they're really comfy to walk in. BUT... and this wasn't mentioned in any review I read - the ankle part is way too loose. Even after fiddling with the elasticated laces I could not make the boot fit snugly around my ankle. This is important to me as I like to wear ankle boots with dresses/skirts rather than jeans/trousers where the top of the boot is usually covered. So I like ankle boots to fit snugly around the top when wearing tights/hold ups and these just don't! In fact they look rather silly because of the gaping! (However, I should mention this might not matter if worn with socks or woolly tights...)
SO... I'm returning mine because of that and reordering another similar style by Hush Puppy. (I will add that the pair I received had small black marks on the suede part so they were imperfect - but if the overall fit had been ok I would probably have overlooked that)
On a positive note they are gorgeous boots and the shoe part is very comfortable and true to size. And the deep red colour is beautiful!
I hope this is helpful...
