Love the style and look of this shoe, which I'd wear walking around town in jeans or with skirts and dresses. Super versatile, classic style with just a hint of edge to them. One of the heels is defective on the pair I received (it's not aligned with the rest of the heel, oddly). While I await a replacement, here are some thoughts: (1) They are snug. I have regular to narrow width feet and a narrow heel, and it was a bit of a squeeze to get my larger foot in the shoe. The upside is that these hug your ankles, which makes them especially attractive with skirts/leggings, unlike most booties. People with wider feet and high arches are not going to get into these shoes, and orthotics don't fit well in these shoes for the same reason, which is unfortunate, because the foot bed isn't terribly cushioned; (2) they seem to be long despite this (extra room from toes to front of shoe), and I'm concerned that the next size up with would make these look like clown or elf shoes, (3) the charcoal color is amazing; there is some color variation, but it looks good, (4) The leather sole and heel, while lovely, were quite slippery around the house.

The boots are beautiful, the grey leather is a nice color and so soft, however they must be returned. I am a size 8, and ordered this, but these are definitely not a medium width. The length for an 8 is even long, but manageable. The width from the heel through the top of the foot is way too narrow for any sort of comfort. Sizing up would just make the shoe too long. For the price, I really can't take the chance that they may loosen up when wearing, as they are just too narrow. Not sure really who are able to weat these boots. Its unfortunate as I would have loved to keep them.

This is a great boot, so comfy and stylish! I am usually a size 7, but as is usually the case when I buy boots, I went with the 7.5. The 7 was way too narrow, but the 7.5 does feel a bit long. I'm not sure if its simply because of the style of the boot, but I'm hoping with time I'll just get used to it, because damn it is a gorgeous boot. The one other thing I wasn't thrilled with is the bottoms are a bit slippery, but again, I'm hoping with time I'll break them in a bit and get used to it.

I was worried about spending this much on boots without trying them on, but because they are Fyres I took a chance. Amazing! Like others have said, go a half size up. I am a solid 7.5 and got an 8 in these. They were pretty tight and difficult to get my foot into until about the 5th on/off. Now they feel like they were made for my feet. I still can't wear really thick socks, but that's okay. You may need to go a whole size up if you'd like to wear really warm socks. That's not an issue for me and I'm looking forward to wearing these for a long time.

I love these boots! Usually an 8 but got an 8.5 and it's perfect. The 8 was a little too snug and I couldn't wear them without really thin socks. Can't wait to wear them in!
