FLY London Leather Zip-Up Ankle Boots - Abys is rated

Stylish but zero traction & not a comfort shoe
If you're going on looks alone, these are truly stylish and unique. However, for the high price I expect near-perfection (and I paid full price-not this clearance price they're currently running). The 2 negatives-there is no traction on the bottom of these shoes. Expect to slide around on a slick floor. I have done so numerous times. I keep meaning to take a knife to the bottom of the shoes to create some grip. It's insane that I have to do that for the price, but let's move on to the other issue. There is no soft, cushiony insole. I don't know why shoe companies keep making shoes that are uncomfortable, especially when you're talking about a price like this. It's 2019 people. If these 2 issues didn't exist, I'd buy the shoe in the other 2 colors because it's that stylish. But no way. As for buying another pair of Fly London shoes, I probably won't. I'll only be taken for a sucker once! Note to Fly London: I'll pay a very high price for things I think are worth it. My primary complaint is not the cost. It's that, for this cost, we deserve not to go sliding on linoleum or a sidewalk and nearly breaking a leg, and we deserve a little bit of cushion comfort. It's insulting that you would sell a shoe like this for this price. Minus 4 stars due to those issues at this price.

I own two pairs of Softinos und love everything about them. So I decided to splurge. Bought these in black and they look nice. The decorative zippers are a nice touch. The leather is nothing special and the insole gives very lttle comfort. And the sizing is again an issue as with almost every brand that requires translating European to US sizes. Never in a lifetime would I have to buy shoes bigger than 39/9. The Softinos are even a bit short while these shoes have so much room that I will be able to put a comfortable sole in it. And that's why I will keep them. And then there is the little card informing me that the color might fade over time (not clear if shoe or outer sole). Don't know how they justify the high price.
