Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gorgeous Boot w/ One Flaw This boot is absolutely gorgeous. I purchased the (grey) color option in the (91/2 to 10) size, and the fit is perfect. I tried it on w/ thick socks, and it fits me great. My normal shoe size is a 10M. The next size up would have fit me like a size 11, and that would have been too big. The perforations are perfect, and the washed color has the look of grey, as well as, blue which means you can wear this boot w/ both colored outfits and it would work beautifully. Now, there is one "flaw" w/ this item and I'm NOT certain if it's a big flaw or not. The bottom, sides, back, and front toe parts of this shoe is very strong and sturdy (your foot will be supported), but the top part of the shoe the leather is very very very thin. That's the small part that lays on the top of your foot. I'm NOT certain how the manufacturer designed this when making this shoe, b/c the sides, bottom, back, and toe parts are firm and sturdy leather. You can smell the quality leather throughout the shoe. The top leather part is so thin that I am concerned about that small piece durability over time. I love the shoe and the design so much that I bought it anyway, but I have decided to take "special care" of the shoe's top leather part. I kept the "shoe shaper" that's inside your shoes when they are shipped/sold so the leather top part can keep its shape, and I plan on getting leather conditioner to keep that top leather part from cracking/splitting under different temperatures (summer/winter). Hope these methods work b/c the boots are "cool" and they fit wonderful. Remember, the boot is sturdy and comfortable, it's just the small patch of leather that rest on the top of your foot is thin, thin, thin w/ very little support under that piece of leather. All the rest of the shoe's leather have major support under it which is more durable supportive leather. I cannot explain why the designer did NOT continue w/ the additional support leather underneath the small top part of this shoe. If they would have, this would be the ultimate bootie ever made, so this is why I gave it 4-stars. So, now you have it. To you, the one flaw may be a "big flaw" or not, only time will tell me how this beautiful boot will hold up.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from just ok no wow I bought the natural color size 8 1/2 med which is the 39. Booties were soft but almost to the point of no shape on top of foot. Color was seriously boring but besides all that they were about half size too big (width and length). Booties have a great cutout look. I wear a size 8 med in regular shoes unless its a boot or heel height over 2 1/2" . I also ordered the A336389 sandal in white 39 and it was big and lose in width and length. The heel is a faux look that looks like you could "bust it" if you got caught in the rain. The craftsmanship is not there in my opinion except for the cool style. Its hard to say if either would be comfortable with the size issue. I had high hopes for this brand. Its a bummer to send back but too $$$ to keep. My suggestion free shipping on all shoes because you have to try shoes on.
