Rated 4 out of 5 by joy2thaworld Patience beauty is painful
Boots run about 1/2 size long but narrow to medium width. Comfortable supportive arch, insole and heel. Due to the great quality of the real leather requires break in time. They arive extremely stiff and unforgiving. If you are willing to be patient and break them in with heavy socks at home over shorter periods of time they will turn into the most beautiful comfortable boots. I dont advise ladies with larger ankles to purchase as no amount of break in will stretch that much. I wear a 5 in skecher ryka and vionic. Same with these.
Rated 4 out of 5 by BaRbaRa One of my best purchases ever
I just received my IM Ankle booties w/strap details. They are just so beautiful, ordered in the wine color in size 5 1/2. They are well made and the leather is so soft and very comfortable. The fit is just a little snug on my left foot, I'm not to worried I believe it will stretch as I break them in, that's the reason for 4 stars otherwise I would have given 5 stars. I have received so many compliments on them. :-)
Rated 3 out of 5 by kept or returned Pretty Shoe, Leather Hard & Uncomfortable
Ordered: Mulberry, 9 Medium

Beautiful shoe. Priced well. Just what I was seeking. Liked the style and heel height. Disappointed in color, which was more on the brown side. It only looked mulberry in bright light. Tried on. Fit seemed fine, but still felt extremely uncomfortable. Leather extremely stiff, no give. Top of boot hits leg on every stride. Not a keeper.

I get the most complements in work on this bootie than any other boot I wear. Too late to go back for the natural. I wear socks with my boots so comfort is no problem.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Gorgeous but uncomfortable
Oh, how I wanted to like these booties! They were just gorgeous. To my eye, they did not look at all like pleather (as one reviewer wrote). The crisscross strapping was really dressy and the soles and toe areas were comfortable. However, the front of the bootie hit the area of my lower shin (just up from the ankle) in such a way that it felt like a knife was digging in. Another reviewer wrote that she would have to wear boot socks. In my life as a teacher, I am on my feet a LOT and sometimes has to go several flights of stairs at a time when walking to meetings or other school events. I could not fathom how I would possibly manage to wear these for an average day. If I had a desk job, maybe they would have worked. Stairs were the deal-breaker. What a shame.... they were just beautiful and seemed of very high quality. I just could not keep them for the price QVC charged, knowing that I would only wear them rarely and probably be in pain whenever I had them on. Not worth it.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Love the look but...
I love the look of these boots, heel height perfect, color (green) perfect, but I am having the same issue with the ankle area. That is why I gave them a 3 star rating. The leather is stiff and is rubbing the outside of my ankles which is painful. I am wearing them for the first time with sheer hose so I will try them with socks/tights and hope that will resolve the problem.

The color was just what I needed and the fit is perfect. I have ordered other Isaac Shoes and am never disappointed. Quality in every detail.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Pomluvrsps Very cute boots
I wear a size 7 shoe; however, in boots I always get size 7 1/2. I ordered these boots in 7 1/2 wide and they fit fine...I can wear mid weight socks with them. These boots are cute and the leather seems to be very good quality. However, they are not comfortable around the ankles. The leather is stiff and the boot rubs both ankles on the outside of my leg. I have only worn them twice, both times with hose, but in the future I will wear socks, at least until they get broken in. Other than rubbing at the ankle, the rest of the boot is very comfortable.
I have two other pair of Isaac Mizrahi ankle boots and they never rubbed my ankles. I compared them to this boot and on the other two pair, the leather inside the boot is much smoother and there is no "ridge." On these boots, on the inside there is a ridge where the lining is sewn to the boot and that is what is rubbing.
If you're not going to do a lot of walking, they will probably be fine; however, if you're going to walk a lot, I highly recommend boot socks.
I would not recommend these as a gift simply because of the discomfort around the ankle.
