I have these boots in the black with silver/white stitching and they're very pretty. However, I didn't realize when I bought them that they have the pull loops completely inside the boot, not over the top as most are. This takes up a lot of room in the calf, so if you don't have stick legs, that will make them right. Not only that, but when you pull the boot on by putting your fingers inside the boot, you will eventually rip open the side seams from all the pressure on them. I had them repaired and the pull loops were removed and re-positioned over the top, as they should have been in the first place. It helped a lot, but I can't imagine why they did it that way to begin with. Not only does the loop look better over the top, it hides the slightly uneven top at the seam, where one half of the boot is slightly higher than the other half. Not Old Gringo's best design. I have twelve pairs of OG boots and always check for that problem. I would never buy a pair that had the inside loops. However, this pair is very nice and certainly unique.

OMG! LOVE LOVE LOVE these boots! Comfortable from the first time I wore them, no break-in necessary. True to size!

These are gorgeous. The footbed and shaft were both sized well for my sized 7 feet. These hit just below my calves but I am short at 5'1" so they are well proportioned to my legs. I have worn them four times and always receive compliments. The toe box though snipped is not tight. Like most other Old Gringo boots these have very little foot bed support. I added an Ariat removable foot bed for a snug and comfortable arch and foot support.

My first cowboy boots! I'd drooled over these for a few years after first seeing them online. I think I'm a cowgirl at heart but live in a beach city. I saw them in a boot store while on vacation in AZ, so I tried them on. I usually wear an 8 in most shoes (sometimes 7 1/2 in sandals). The 8 would have allowed me to wear thicker socks and would have been easier to get my foot past the slim ankle-turn but I went for the 7 1/2 which looks so sleek on my feet and legs. They look like they were custom sized for me :-) All other brands I tried had that too-wide look after I tried these. I love that these have a leather sole and stacked heel. My husband actually said he would buy them for me! He swallowed hard at the price. I told him he didn't have to buy them but I didn't want to get any other pair just for the sake of have cowboy boots. He ordered online to shave some off the price. It was definitely a splurge spend for my penny-pinching hubby <3 The stitched design and combination of two shades of brown put together in a lovely curvy design is so amazing! I LOVE the vintage chic timeless, slightly worn look...kind of like they were made in the 50's but will look fabulous for generations to come. Perhaps I will someday have a granddaughter to pass them along to. For now I'm tempted to keep them on my fireplace hearth as a homey decoration while not wearing. Now, here's the challenge: I took them along on a ranch vacation this summer. It was hot. I had a hard time getting them on (but was told its easier if you put your leg up while pulling) and later they were almost impossible to get off even with my husband tugging on them. I need to break them in, but haven't had a chance to since we had an exceptionally hot and humid summer. I'm afraid to wear them unless there's someone home to help me get them off. I might have to have the ankle-turn area stretched a bit. I've also found that I need to wear a fairly thin sock with no seam bump at the edge or it causes a pressure point after awhile. Now that it's winter-chilly it's time to break those beauties in! I've worn them with bootleg jeans and had strangers tell me how much they liked them but now I have some skinny jeans so I can really let them shine! Think of them as an heirloom purchase!

These are very comfortable. They run true to size, the leather has a smell. The way the leather is treated causes a certain smell. I did research and person after person stated that the smell does not go away. I love the boots, but I cannot handle the smell.

These boots are awesome! They run true to size, are a bit tight pulling on, but no biggie. They are so comfortable. First time wearing them for over 10 hours. so comfortable! This is my fourth pair of Old Gringos, and all of them are perfect fit! I highly recommend them!

Gorgeous as usual from OG, but the sticking is a wine color. In the light it looks almost magenta. Its definitely not red on red, which is what I was wanting. These beauties must go back :(

Hello, I have already written a review, but, somehow there was a mix up. They do not run larger, they we're perfect. Please disregard the top dot. Not meant to be. Love these Gorgeous boots.

LOVE this boot and wanted it to fit so badly. The zipper arrived broken on the right foot, so I couldn't even try it on, as it would not open. I needed a half or one size larger on the length. It is gorgeous and worth the price, now I need to find my size (11.5/12), which is proving to be quite difficult.

I absolutely love these boots. They are beautiful. Buy them. But, if you are like me and have narrow feet, sadly these might slosh a bit when you wear them. So, I am sending them back. But they are fun and lovely. If you have normal sized feet, buy them!

These boots are a work of art. The quality is exceptional and even better they are very comfortable - from the moment you put them on. I wear a size 8 and ordered a size 8 and they fit perfectly (which for a cowboy boot means having some looseness). Here's some info on the narrow shaft that might be helpful. The shaft has a 13.5" circumference. Measure your calf at it's widest spot. I have a 14" calf and the boots fit with room to slide my hand in and with enough room for skinny jeans. Also a good shoe repair can stretch a boot shaft a bit if you are close.

Pretty! But gosh, I always receive complaints when I where these shoes. The ONLY downfall is that they are very uncomfortable after a few hours of wear. I own MANY old gringo and the fit is the same as the boot. 9.5 to 9.5 the same. But, in these the heel is a bit higher. The discomfort is at the ball of the foot. *shrug* maybe they will improve with wear. I hope so because they are awfully cute.

I ordered these extra-beautiful boots because of the review that said they were narrow. The leather and embroidery colors are awesome! I got an 8 1/2 and 9 since people reported they ran long (I normally wear a 9 1/2). The tops of the 8 1/2 were perfect and just what I've been looking for with my thin calves. Yes, it's tight to get them on, just like I hoped for! But evidently they think people who wear a 9 have much larger calves as it was quite a jump in width at the calves! The 8 1/2 was too short for my foot, but otherwise PERFECT. The size 9? The usual-gappy-modern-day-made-for-the-Obese-American boot. Disappointed again. I would give them 5 stars for people who aren't 5' 8" and 115 pounds. You would love them. Can someone please make tall boots for non-obese women in a size 9 or 9 1/2?

Beautiful dress boot - perfect to wear with winter white slacks and a gold top during the holiday season. The photo does not do these justice at all. Initial fit is tight, especiall around the ankle and at the toe box, typical for the style. I plan to test them around the house (on carpet) several more times before deciding whether to keep them. I will not pay this much if they cause friction and blisters on my toes. More later.

Size does not accommodate a foot with a high instep. Could not get the shoe on my foot because the narrow instep formed a bottle neck. Great looking boot!

Love these boots. A little tight at the toe, but I have wide feet and they will be OK when they loosen up a bit. But love the boots. Wish they had leather soles.

These are very pretty shoe. I get compliments every time that I wear these. But, I can only wear these for a few hours. They are the worst Old Gringos ever made by way of comfort. I own about 20 Old Gringo shoes - maybe more. Expect the ball of you foot to be sore after wearing these. The quality, as always, excellent leather. The fit, the same as all Old Gringos and/or Fryes. Order a half size down if you are in between sizes. I wear a 9½ to 10. I always choose the 9½ and they have always worked.

Too bad, beautiful boot, but impossible to wear. The long cone-shaped Sintino toe is a problem. Ball of foot set back too far from toe with a far too narrow toebox (and I have narrow AA feet). Poorly designed boot last ruins a great design. More almond shape would be wearable. No give to sole and it is slick;slipping danger. Not a fan of the unfinished sole edges. Great concept, however, ill-executed.

Beautiful boot. Great fit. Stunning embroidery. Looks and feels like it costs as much as it does. Very reluctantly (and sadly) I had to return because I couldn't rationalize keeping two pairs of boots at this price.
