Wow, I do not know what kind of issues other girls have, but I got these on right out of the box in about 12 seconds (it was harder to get the packing paper out of the toe area than it was to get the boot on)! I am typically either a 7½ or 8, I ordered the 8, and they are fine - lots of toe wiggle room for my square feet. I did spend some time relacing them because the laces were too sloppy on my 16" calves, but after that (which was quite an ordeal in itself) these boots fit and look awesome and there are no problems at all.

I'd also recommend: Bed Stu, Frye, Fossil

I have hesitated on several Freebird styles so far and they have sold out quickly, so I did not wait on the Coals even though they were on the pricier end. The cognac leather is very red, which is different from the photo in the Zappos listing, but this is what I was looking for so it was not a problem. They are a bit hard to get on because the back panel is suede, which tugs at your pants/socks, and as another reviewer said it's particularly hard to get your heel past the ankle point. The boots are pretty comfortable once they are on, considering that they are a bit on the dressy side, but the sole does slip on smooth surfaces so I may considering getting those reinforced. And you do need really skinny legs to lace them all the way up, but I got around this by unlacing the whole boot, unwrapping some excess from the ankle, and then relacing them. That worked like a charm! I have been wearing them constantly to loosen up the leather around the arch, but I am very happy with these and plan to wear them with skirts and jeans alike.

It took a few days to break these in, but the leather is high quality and pliable and now they are very comfortable. The heel is a good height - a little lift but not too girly. The detail in the back is very cool. Be aware that the red panel behind the lace does not go all the way to the top of the boot so the back of your calf or jeans will be exposed at the top like the cleavage at the top of a sexy corset.

Stunning boots! Beautiful leather! Not very distressed (like most of my other Freebirds), but just enough color variety for a clean, vintage look (I bought the black). Takes about 5 minutes to get them on because of the laces and unlined leather on upper shaft of boot. But it's well worth the effort. I am a very consistent 7-1/2. Ordered both 7 and 8. The 7 was extremely small and the 8 fit perfectly (like a 7-1/2 normally would on me). Due to the laces, the calf width can vary. But if you want the laces to reach at or near the top holes, skinny calves are a must (less than 12-1/2"), otherwise laces will fall short and could make the boots less desirable and a little sloppy.

Oh how I want to love them. They are different from all the other boots that I own but I am not sure, for the price, if they are worth the five minute workout that I get every time I try to put them on. They really are beautiful, but my high arches make it impossible to put on without breaking a sweat. However, I did find that they fit my 15" calfs nicely. I prefer them laced as pictured instead of all the way to the top.
