I wish I'd noticed there were reviews on Zappos; I wouldn't have bought this pair of boots
if I had. Fit: They felt uncomfortably snug in some places and terribly wide in others. I wear an 8.5 normally but when I buy pointed toe shoes I always go up to a 9 because the toe box ends up too tight. That wasn't the problem with these though, they were way too tight right below the ankles on the sides of my feet. They were way too wide at the top, near the calf. I looked like I was a pre-teen playing dress up in my mother's shoes. When I tried to remove the boots
, it was quite difficult and painful on my ankles. Style: I wanted to like the cutouts. I really did. But the design looked lazily done, almost as if it was an afterthought. Personally, I didn't care for the style when I saw them in real life as opposed to on my computer screen. This is not a jab at the maker of the boots
. I purchased another pair of Dingo boots
with my order and they fit perfect and look great. Dingo
appears to be a good maker of shoes from what I can tell, this particular style just didn't fit well or look good. I'm happy Zappos has such an easy and customer friendly return policy so I could take the money risk with these shoes. I will be returning them, sadly.
